Paul Silva, president of Eagle Realty Group, is among the 30 Bosses to Watch in 2022, a list published by the Cincinnati Business Courier that includes leaders the editors believe will be the most influential across the region. Eagle Realty Group is the real estate subsidiary of Western & Southern Financial Group.

In its profile of Silva, the Courier noted that he succeeded Thomas Stapleton, who retired from Eagle Realty in May 2021 after 33 years with the company. Silva joined Eagle Realty in 2020 as a senior vice president of real estate debt investments. 

Prior to joining Eagle, Silva spent 10 years at First Financial Bank as president of Commercial Real Estate & Healthcare banking. He was president of Merchants Bank and Trust, and also held various leadership positions at Fifth Third Bank and Key Bank.

In 2021, two other Western & Southern executives were named to the Bosses to Watch list: John H. Bultema III, president and CEO of Columbus Life Insurance Company and Lafayette Life Insurance Company, and Blake Moore, president and CEO of Touchstone Investments.
