Encore Bank Sun City Center Branch Manager James Wilmouth to retire

Encore Bank Vice President and Sun City Center Branch Manager James Wilmouth will begin his well-earned retirement on June 30. Wilmouth has worked in banking in Florida for the past 43 years, and has spent the past decade with Encore Bank.

CEO Tom Ray said, “While everyone at Encore Bank will miss Jim, we’re excited for the many adventures ahead for him. We are grateful to his service to the bank, where he set an example for the kind of personal service and dedication that makes Encore unique.”

Wilmouth looks forward to spending time with his two grandchildren, ages seven and 10, who live nearby. He and his wife, Vickie, will also enjoy traveling, with trips planned to the Western United States and Italy. Wilmouth will continue to serve his community as an active member of the Sun City Center Rotary Club and through his church. In addition, he will stay involved with the Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team, where his entire family have been longtime members.

Wilmouth said, “Encore Bank attracts outstanding customers who have made it a pleasure to come to work each and every day. Although I will miss seeing them, a lot of those customers told me about how great retirement is, so I thought I’d try it.”
