Darren Schuldheiss has assumed oversight of KeyBank’s Idaho operations, including its 15 offices in the Treasure Valley.
He succeeded Idaho President Kevin Donovan, who left to take a job outside of banking.
“They hired me to grow this market, and I think we’ll do that,” Schuldheiss told the Statesman on Friday. KeyBank controls nearly 12 percent of deposits in the Valley, according to a 2014 federal report, trailing Well Fargo and U.S. Bank.
Schuldheiss moved to Boise from Seattle, where he was KeyBank’s national director of sales. A Montana native and a 2001 University of Montana graduate, he said Boise feels like home.
“KeyBank wants this to be a long-term role,” he said. “I plan on raising my family in Idaho.”
