LaSalle Bank's purchaser is keeping on Keith Slifer, head of LaSalle's commercial lending services in Indianapolis, and giving him additional responsibilities.
Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America Corp., which bought LaSalle Oct. 1, has put Slifer in charge of its commercial banking operations in Indiana and Ohio.
He will remain in Indianapolis and oversee the converted Bank of America office on South Meridian Street, as well as locations in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus.
The local LaSalle office started its commercial lending operations in 1996 and moved into commercial real estate a year later. It has built a sizable presence in the midsize commercial loan market.
