Since joining Commerce in 2007, John Kemper has served in a number of roles, leading bank strategy and M&A overseeing the bank’s credit card businesses; and serving as chairman of Capital for Business, the bank’s private equity subsidiary.

We believe our bank’s super community model will continue to allow us to serve the communities where we live and work, and to do it with industry leading products and capabilities. We at the bank are all looking forward to a bright future, and I’m glad to help contribute to our success.”
