Thomaston Savings Bank employee Marissa McGee, VP, Senior Operations Officer, was named a New Leader in Banking by the Connecticut Bankers Association (CBA). She was recognized during a special reception at BankWorld 2023, held at Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino on January 12th.
The CBA asks bankers throughout the state to nominate individuals they believe to be an outstanding employee, manager or business leader who is making a notable impact within their bank and community. The CBA receives numerous nominations that are vetted by an independent panel of judges, none of whom are active bankers. After review, the panel selected fourteen individuals as this year’s “New Leaders in Banking.”
“Marissa is truly deserving of this recognition. We greatly value her contributions to our team and are thrilled to have such an outstanding leader among our ranks. Congratulations Marissa!” - Stephen Lewis, President & CEO, Thomaston Savings Bank
