BankUnited announced today the hiring of Thomas M. Cornish as state president of Florida. In this newly created role, he will oversee all retail and commercial banking services in the state.

Before joining BankUnited, Cornish served as president and CEO of Marsh & McLennan Agency, Florida Region. The Florida Region is comprised of six offices and 180 professionals serving the insurance needs of middle market companies and affluent individuals within the state. He has held this position since 2003.

Prior to that, Cornish held senior leadership roles with SunTrust Bank from 1983-2003, including his role as city president for the Miami market, and commercial banking executive for the South Florida region. In this role, he managed commercial banking, international banking, commercial real estate, treasury management, merchant services and investment banking.

In 2012 he was honored by South Florida Business Journal as one of Miami’s CEOs of the year, an honor he previously received from Business Leader Magazine in 2010.

“Tom Cornish is an extraordinary executive,” said John A. Kanas, BankUnited’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “His knowledge of the Florida market combined with his outstanding personal reputation will take BankUnited to a new level. We welcome him enthusiastically.”

Active in the community, Cornish currently serves on the board of directors of Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation where he is the immediate past chair and as vice chair of Florida International University (FIU) Foundation. He is also a board member of Camillus House and Chapman Partnership in addition to serving on the Orange Bowl Committee.
