HSBC Bank has appointed Lori Vetters as senior vice president and regional commercial executive to spearhead its middle-market banking for Texas and the neighboring region.
Based in Houston, Vetters will report to Arjan van den Berkmortel, executive vice president and regional president of commercial banking for the West Coast and Texas, the banker said.
The bank has assigned her to manage business development and commercial banking services for middle-market companies in the Southwest who carry out their business through HSBC’s offices located in Houston and Dallas.

Prior to this, she worked as regional president of the Houston Gulf Coast market for Wachovia and as a Texas-based managing director at JP Morgan Chase and its predecessor firms.
Vetters will work closely with colleague Dale Wilson, a Houston-based senior vice president and regional commercial executive with responsibility to fully serve the needs of growing corporate clients.
