June 26 - Dallas-based Comerica Bank has names Donald P. Hellman as its first Fort Worth market president. Hellman, with 32 years of DFW commercial banking experience, has led Comerica's middle-market business in Tarrant County since 2008. He will continue in that role, and in that capacity, report to David B. Terry, senior vice president and division manager of corporate banking. In his new role as regional market president, Hellman will report to J. Patrick Faubion, Comerica's Texas market president, and will join Comerica's Texas Management Council.
As Fort Worth market president, Hellman's new responsibilities will include supporting the bank's customer initiatives and overall business and community development efforts across its retail, business bank and wealth management businesses.
"After many successful years in banking in Dallas, we tasked Don, who began his banking career in Fort Worth in 1981, with opening our Tarrant County regional headquarters in 2008, in the midst of the financial market downturn," said Faubion. "In that very challenging environment, Don helped grow our client base in Tarrant County, a success story that is a testament to his leadership abilities and business acumen, as well as Comerica's strength and stability."
Active in community and civic affairs, Hellman, an Irving native, serves on the board of directors for Downtown Fort Worth Inc. and Communities in Schools of Greater Tarrant County. He is also an active member of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.
