    Better late than never, the Dayton Daily newsless finally covered Joey’s job change- a month after it happened and 8 days after I first told you about it.

    Williams named senior VP for banking group

    Dayton City Commissioner Joey D. Williams this week was named senior vice president and market leader for RBS Citizens’ middle market banking group in central and southern Ohio, according to the bank.

    Williams worked for JP Morgan Chase for nine years, most recently as Dayton City President and Commercial Banking Manager. With RBS Citizens, he will have offices in Dayton and Cincinnati.

    Ken Marblestone, president of RBS Citizens, said Williams’ “deep dedication to community service fits perfectly with our tradition of giving back to the communities where we live and work.”

    Williams is running for reelection to Dayton City Commission this year. If more than four candidates qualify for the ballot, there will be a primary election May 7. The general election is in November.
