Jack C. Zoeller

President & Chief Executive Officer
Jack is Co-Founder, President and CEO of Cordia Bancorp and a member of the board of directors. He has 30 years' experience in the start-up and turn-around of companies in the banking, financial services and risk management industries. During the last major banking crisis in the U.S., he served as turn-around CEO of ComFed Bancorp, a troubled $1.8 billion asset-size bank holding company in Massachusetts. Early in his career he managed initial public stock offerings and provided financial and merger advice to community banks. From 2006 to 2009 he served on the board and executive committee of a Virginia bank holding company that merged with a healthy community bank and acquired two failed banks from the FDIC.

Mr. Zoeller began his career in corporate finance at E.F. Hutton in New York, after serving as a Ranger and infantry company commander in the 82d Airborne Division. At Hutton he pioneered the development of credit and interest rate risk strategies and built the first financial guarantee insurance subsidiary on Wall Street. He founded and served as CEO of Hutton Risk Management, Capital Risk Management and AtlantiCare Risk Management, and also served three years as CEO of New England's largest volume mortgage lender. Mr. Zoeller is believed to have been the first bank president asked by the RTC to remain in place during his bank's conservatorship. Commencing in 1995, he served as founder and CEO of AtlantiCare Inc. and North American Health & Life Insurance Co. Ltd. He has served on 22 corporate and nonprofit boards of directors. In 2010 he was appointed to the Defense Business Board at the Pentagon.
