Customers Bank appoints CFO, controller

By ,

Wyomissing-based Customers Bancorp Inc., the parent company of Customers Bank, announced it appointed two executives to its senior financial team.

Carla Leibold was promoted to chief financial officer and as a member of the office of the chair.

Leibold joined Customers in 2013 as senior vice president, chief accounting officer and controller. She was promoted to executive vice president, chief accounting officer and controller earlier this year.

Prior to joining Customers, Leibold served as the principal accounting officer for Farmer Mac where she was the vice president and controller from 2010-2013. She also served as the director of accounting and financial reporting of Farmer Mac from 2007-2010.

"She is a natural leader who will continue to help the bank grow profitably," Jay Sidhu, chairman and CEO of Customers Bancorp, Customers Bank and BankMobile, said in a statement.

Jeffrey C. Skumin was promoted to chief accounting officer and controller.

Skumin joined Customers in 2017 and was promoted earlier this year to senior vice president and accounting policy and SEC reporting director.

Skumin was formerly a partner at Baker Tilly Virchow, Krause, LLP.

Leibold said it is an “exciting time in banking” and that new technology is bringing opportunities for growth.

"I think great things are going to happen to this bank in the next three or four years as the potential for value creation is tremendous," Leibold said in a statement.

Leibold started her career in public accounting and held various roles of increasing leadership responsibility at Sallie Mae and Freddie Mac before joining Farmer Mac.

Leibold replaces Robert Wahlman who is leaving for personal reasons and to pursue other interests. Wahlman's decision to leave was not due to any dispute or disagreement on any matter relating to operations, policies, practices, or accounting principles, the bank said.
