Bart Smith

Managing Director, Regulatory Services
Drawing on his 25 years of experience at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Bart saw a need for education when it comes to regulatory concerns. He created PT Score products to help ease the fear that regulatory concerns can cause for institutions and teach banks how to leverage their regulatory position to find new opportunities.

Prior to joining Performance Trust, Bart began his career in 1985 as an Assistant Examiner in the FDIC’s Houston, Texas Field Office. He received his Commission as an Examiner in 1989 and was promoted to Senior Examiner in 1991. During his tenure in Texas, Bart was instrumental in the examination and resolution of several large banks and savings and loans. In 1992, Bart accepted a Review Examiner position in the New York Regional Office, where he worked primarily with large multinational institutions. In 1997, he was promoted to the Field Supervisor position in the Baltimore, MD where he had coverage of all field examination activities in Maryland and the District of Columbia. In 2002, Bart became the Territory Supervisor for the Charlotte, NC office, which covers all supervisory activities in North and South Carolina, including several of the nation’s largest banks. Bart held his position in Charlotte until joining Performance Trust in 2012.
