Comerica Inc. announced that Joe Ursuy has been named to the new role of executive vice president of national business for energy, renewables, and waste where he will operate out of the Detroit office.
Ursuy most recently served as senior vice president and director of environmental services, leading the environmental services department (ESD) that he was instrumental in establishing among Comerica’s Commercial Bank divisions and industry services.
In addition to continue managing Comerica’s sizeable relationships in the recycling, renewable energy, and waste industries, Ursuy will also oversee the bank’s existing oil and natural gas production and midstream line of business.
“Joe’s expertise assisting renewable energy, recycling and refuse companies has been instrumental in allowing us to deepen our relationships in many sectors within those industries across all our markets,” says Ritchie. “These businesses and the environments in which they operate are continuing to evolve, and Joe’s leadership and extensive knowledge bolster our customers’ ability to navigate through their challenges while helping them grow and succeed.”
Earlier this year, Comerica expanded the Environmental Services Department with the introduction of the renewable energy solutions group, which is dedicated to growing and supporting Comerica’s renewable energy business.
A 24-year veteran in the financial services industry, Ursuy has been with Comerica since 1998. Prior to founding the environmental services group in 2006, he has held a variety of positions in Comerica’s middle market banking team.
Ursuy is a board member for the Environmental Research and Education Foundation based in Raleigh, N.C., and he is a frequent guest speaker at industry events.
He is an avid supporter of giving back to the community, and he and his team regularly volunteer at several Detroit area charities. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Northwood University and an MBA from the University of Detroit Mercy.
