National bank failures did not happen overnight, but the end result still rocked the nation. “Everybody’s perspective had been based on historical 18-month slowdowns and then everything picks back up again,” says Jim LaHaise, president and CEO of Coastal Bank. “Nobody had any idea that everything was going to come to a screeching halt in 2008.”
