Bob Bennett
Senior Vice President of Fifth Third Bank

Bob Bennett has worked as a Commercial Banker in Richmond for almost 40 years. He has worked with companies’ management teams that range from owner entrepreneurs to the C-Suite of Fortune 500 companies over his career. Today, Bob is a Senior Vice President at Fifth Third Bank, and he is highly focused on helping Virginia-based Middle Market companies with their financial and banking service needs. Those Middle Market companies that Bob works with generally have revenues in the $25 million to $500 million range, and are often at inflection points in their business strategies. Through his business experience, trusted advice, and insight into loan and capital structures, Bob seeks to help his clients grow their businesses, manage risk/return, and exceed their goals.

Established in 1858 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Fifth Third Bank is the largest bank headquartered in the Midwest, and we are the 12th largest U. S. bank with total assets of $168 billion and retail branches in 10 states. Over the last two decades Fifth Third has grown into the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth. We have recently announced branch expansions in several of our Southeastern states in contrast to branch closings and consolidations by some of our banking competitors. Fifth Third operates four primary lines of business to serve our clients including: Commercial and Investment Banking, Branch Banking, Consumer Lending, and Wealth & Asset Management.
