Riverview Community Bank leader Kim Capeloto resigns

Kim Capeloto, executive vice president and chief banking officer of Riverview Community Bank, will leave the company in February. He has worked at the bank for 11 years.

“I really enjoyed my time working at Riverview,” Capeloto, 60, said in a press release. “I’ve had the honor of leading a dedicated team that puts customers first. I’m incredibly proud of them. I look forward to different challenges and am currently considering several interesting opportunities. As a customer, shareholder and friend, I also look forward to following Riverview’s continued growth and progress.

“My tenure at Riverview has really allowed me to continue my community involvement and community connections,” Capeloto told the Columbian. “The most memorable thing about my entire time at Riverview was the friendships I made with my colleagues and clients.”

Capeloto joined the bank in 2010, contributing to the growth of the bank – it doubled in size during his tenure – and the customer-focused branch system. There will soon be 17 branches in Oregon and southwest Washington.

“Of course we are disappointed for Riverview; on the other hand, we’re excited to see Kim explore new possibilities because that’s what he wants to do,” Kevin Lycklama, president and CEO of Riverview, said in a press release.

While at Riverview, Capeloto represented the bank at numerous community and non-profit events, including for the Northwest Association for Blind Athletes, Humane Society for Southwest Washington, Share, Hough Foundation, Rocksolid Community Teen Center, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the CMD. Care services. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Capeloto used to host or serve as an auctioneer at around 40 events each year.

“I try to make it as easy as possible, so they don’t have to pay someone to do this job and have more money left in their pocket,” Capeloto told The Columbian.

He has served on the boards of Identity Clark County, the School of Piano Technology for the Blind, the Humane Society for Southwest Washington, the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington, and the J. Scott Campbell Foundation.

Each of these organizations serves a particular niche, benefiting surrounding communities, Capeloto said.

“If you can be involved in organizations that improve the whole communities where we live, then I wear that as a badge of honor,” he said. “That’s why I’m involved with them.”

Company management asked Capeloto to continue representing the bank in the community in the future, which he agreed to do.

“Wherever I land, I will be somewhere in this community, and I will be involved in this community and I will continue to do whatever I can to help organizations,” Capeloto said.

Capeloto previously served as chief executive of the Greater Vancouver Chamber, before joining Riverview. Prior to that, he spent 25 years in banking, most recently as chairman of Bank of Clark County, which closed in 2009, as well as Wells Fargo and Union Bank.
