KANSAS CITY, Mo. –– Commerce Bank has named Russ Rockenbach as the new president of its north Texas market. Rockenbach brings more than 30 years of experience to Commerce Bank. Early in his career, after graduating from Northern Illinois University, he worked in corporate finance and portfolio management.

“I am excited to join Commerce Bank and lead this talented and dedicated team,” said Rockenbach. “Commerce is uniquely positioned to support the growth of our clients by helping them access capital and optimize their banking processes so they can focus on what matters most.”
