With nine branches across three counties in Maryland, Rosedale is a well-known community bank that serves both personal and small business customers and specializes in mortgage lending.
Rosedale leadership initially engaged Hartman to help with technology integration planning and execution related to a merger with another community bank. Hartman led the integration efforts and seamlessly guided the bank through the acquisition.
During the initial engagement, Hartman determined that the bank needed to better integrate technology with its overall business goals and work toward digital transformation — a task best handled by a Chief Information Officer(CIO). Though Rosedale had a strong IT manager with great potential to succeed, he needed mentorship and a defined career path to be the strategic IT leader the bank needed for long-term success.
