Chad Belanger, Thomaston Savings Bank, was recognized at a recent ceremony for being selected as a New Leader in Banking.
Thomaston Savings Bank is proud to congratulate Chad Belanger, Assistant Treasurer, Junior Treasury Analyst, on being named a New Leader in Banking at BankWorld 2020. A ceremony was held at Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino to honor this year’s recipients.
The Connecticut Bankers Association and Connecticut Banking magazine asked bankers throughout Connecticut to nominate individuals they believe are rising stars in the banking industry. Nominees must be working at a bank in Connecticut, be 50 years of age or younger, and be making a significant contribution to their institution or community. Many nominations were received, which were vetted by an independent panel of judges.
Chad worked for Thomaston Savings Bank in March, 2006 – August, 2007 with the Bank’s School-to-Career program as a Teller. In 2011, Chad came back to Thomaston Savings Bank as a Teller and quickly grew within the organization, advancing to a Senior Teller and then to a Head Teller. In September of 2012, Mr. Belanger moved to the Finance Department where he ultimately advanced to his current role.
