Kyle DeCicco has led Sanibel Captiva Community Bank to close $65 million in loans in just over two years and helped launch two new Lee County branch locations within a month of each other. But a four-year stint working with a larger bank on commercial loan workouts during the Great Recession left him wondering if the field was really for him.

“Ultimately, through persistency and focus on my long-term career goals, I changed my attitude and eventually worked into the position with a bank that I really wanted,” DeCicco says. “Those times in my career were a vital part of my professional development and have helped shape me into the individual I am today.”

Now, DeCicco enjoys helping a greater range of clients within the community, like the several commercial clients he helped provide relief to in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

“I am committed to both this community and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, as they have given me the opportunity to serve my community and advance in my profession,” he says.

DeCicco is married to his high school sweetheart, Jennifer. In addition to CrossFit, he enjoys spending time in Southwest Florida’s outdoors. He is an avid bicyclist, fisherman and boater.
