“The board took the initiative to look beyond current trust and banking candidates, to someone who has information systems background within the financial services sector as well as strong business development experience,’ said Chairman of the Board Joseph Kopczynski. “ We believe we already have a great trust staff. We were looking for someone who could be that bridge between fiduciary responsibilities, technology and marketing strategy.’
