A bank with a West Michigan presence has named a managing director to oversee its local wealth management team.
Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bank said today it hired Susan Vogel-Vanderson as managing director for the Fifth Third Private Bank in West Michigan.
In her new role, she will oversee a team that works with high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals and families “to simplify financial complexity” through products and services.
Fifth Third described Vogel-Vanderson as “a strategic leader with a broad range of experience” over the past 30-plus years, including risk management in the financial services and retail industries, managing a regional multi-family office, and providing wealth management and trust services.

Most recently, Vogel-Vanderson served as the director of compliance and privacy for Meijer, where she led the design, implementation and maintenance of the company’s enterprise compliance and privacy programs.
She is a returning employee at Fifth Third, where she previously worked for 12 years.
