Craig Albert realized he wouldn’t have to look far to find his successor as the CEO of the Sanibel Captiva Community Bank. Kyle DeCicco joined the bank in 2016 as a commercial loan officer; a year ago, Albert put a succession plan in place, promoting DeCicco to president. Now, that plan has been finalized, with DeCicco, 37, being promoted to CEO effective Jan. 1. Albert, 62, will remain involved as chairman of the bank’s board of directors, two decades after founding it.
“You know what was so great about Kyle when he first started with the bank?” Albert says. “Every time I saw him, he’d say, ‘What can I take off your plate? What can I do to help make things easier?’ He did that from early on.”
Albert founded the bank in 2003 with two other employees: the late office manager Nora Mohr and original bank teller Debbie Norris, who advanced to become a vice president and branch manager.
