Associated Banc-Corp Names Robert Watson as EVP and Corporate Treasurer

Associated Banc-Corp has named Robert Watson executive vice president (EVP) and corporate treasurer. Watson will be responsible for managing the company’s treasury activities including investments, funding, and interest rate and liquidity risk management.

Watson has more than 30 years of bank treasury experience and began his career as a management trainee at the National Bank of Detroit. His roles and responsibilities grew with the institution as it later merged into First Chicago, Bank One, and ultimately, JP Morgan Chase. During his 24-year career with the institution, Watson held a successive series of trading and management positions of increasing responsibility on the money desk, in foreign exchange (FX), in funding, and in investments.

Watson left JP Morgan Chase as a managing director (MD) and went on to serve as treasurer of BankAtlantic and, more recently, as director of corporate treasury at Whitney National Bank in New Orleans. Watson graduated with honours from Wayne State University where he earned a BSc in business administration with a specialisation in financial markets. Watson will be based at the corporate headquarters in Green Bay.
