Simmons Bank promoted Laura Condley, Tim Maiden and Dion Grey to senior vice president roles and director of market development roles within its recently created metro market development team.

Erica Preston and Ray Torrence III also have been added to the team in the same roles for different markets.

These key leaders will oversee private client and business banking, deepen and develop customer relationships and provide collaborative financial products and services, the bank said on Wednesday.

Chris White, executive vice president of metro market development, said in a news release that this expansion is the direct result of the bank’s growth across its six-state footprint.
