Rita Lowman joins Caldwell Trust Company board of directors

Rita Lowman, previously president of Pilot Bank, has joined the board of directors of regionally-based Caldwell Trust Company, a wealth management company based in Venice.

Lowman began her banking career 45 years ago and has managed more than 20 acquisitions during her career, including the Nations Bank-Barnett Bank merger in 1997.

“I’ve looked at a number of opportunities. This felt good,” says Lowman. “This way I can continue to give back to the community.”

She added, she is eager to learn from the talented group of people currently sitting on the board.

In 2017, Lowman was elected as only the third woman in the 130-year history of the Florida Bankers Association to serve as its chair. She provided similar services as past chair of the American Bankers Association’s executive board of directors and its government relations council.

Lowman also chaired the Florida School of Banking, at the University of Florida, American Cancer Society Cattle Baron’s Ball, American Heart Association Go Red, American Cancer Society Tampa Bay Council and the Centre Club.

Besides Caldwell Trust Company, she is a current board member of Southeastern U.S. American Cancer Society and Tampa Bay Bowl Association. She previously served on the executive boards of directors of the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce and the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce.

Lowman was the 2020-2022 chair of the Tampa Bay Bowl and has been serving on its board of directors since 2013.

In 2022, she was honored as Gracepoint’s Guy King Mental Health Champion. She was also the recipient of the 2021 Dottie Berger MacKinnon Woman of Influence Award and the 2019 Outstanding Leader of the Year as president of Pilot Bank, both presented by the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce. The Girl Scouts of America honored her in 2019 with its Women of Distinction award.

“I will continue to advocate for the banking industry and adding value, but also stay involved in the advocacy for mental health causes,” Lowman says, adding, she plans to remain in the Tampa Bay area.
