Beckerman joined Comerica in 2002 and is responsible for evaluating environmental risk and transactional due diligence for a wide variety of real-estate based financial transactions, with concentrations in industrial properties, petroleum facilities, automotive dealerships, and brownfield redevelopments. He is also a member of Comerica's Sustainability Council, and provides support to Comerica's Corporate Sustainability Program, including the bank's Energy Efficiency Lending Workgroup and Carbon Risk Workgroup.

Beckerman also serves on a variety of professional organizations, including the Board of Governors of the Environmental Banker's Association, the executive committee of the National Brownfield Association – Michigan Chapter and as chair of the Environmental Affairs Committee of the Michigan Bankers Association. He also serves as a judge for the annual (Detroit Free Press) Michigan Green Leaders Awards.

Plewa began working in Credit Administration at Comerica 27 years ago, where he managed the Environmental Risk Management Group. In 2008, he established Comerica's Sustainability Office and has directed the office ever since. Plewa expects to stay involved with environmental sustainability organizations in Ann Arbor and at the University of Michigan following his retirement.

"We are extremely grateful for the 27 years Rick dedicated to Comerica," said Beckerman. "He instituted a legacy of leadership when he established Comerica's Sustainability Office and embedded sustainable practices throughout the company, ensuring the prosperity of the people, businesses and communities that we serve. I'm honored to succeed him and will continue to drive our progress on meeting today's business needs in a way that does not jeopardize the needs of future generations."
