Novato -- Circle Bank has hired veteran Marin County banker Michael Moulton as its chief financial officer.

In his new position, Mr. Moulton will report to Kim Kaselionis, president and chief executive officer of the bank.

Mr. Moulton replaced Steve Jones.

Mr. Moulton comes to Circle Bank from Tamalpais Bank, where he was an executive vice president and the chief financial officer and responsible for all financial, reporting and accounting functions.  For more than 20 years he has been in senior management in banks and financial services firms in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Mike is another key element as we build our management team and broaden the depth of our products and the reach of our services,” said Ms. Kaselionis.  “Having worked at both a publicly and privately-held financial institutions, he will bring a new level of experience to our operations.”

Mr. Moulton is the second senior level employee to move from Tamalpais Bank to Circle Bank this year. In April, Michael Rice, most recently senior vice president of business lending and chief lending officer and SBA manager for Tamalpais Bank, came to Circle Bank as senior vice president for business lending.

A graduate of Cal State East Bay, Mr. Moulton has more than two decades of experience in the banking and financial services industries.  He joined Tamalpais Bank in 1994 after having spent nearly 10 years in various senior management positions at other financial institutions.

Mr. Moulton resides in Greenbrae with his family. He has served on the boards of Gilead House and Habitat for Humanity of Marin.

Circle Bank, which operates two branches in Sonoma County and two in Marin County, recently announced its intention to open a full-service, seven-day a week branch in San Francisco’s Noe Valley.
