Thomaston Savings Bank proudly congratulates Todd Burton, VP/Retail Banking and CRA Officer, on being named a “New Leader in Banking” for BankWorld 2018. A Gala Awards Ceremony and dinner was held at Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino on Thursday, January 11, 2018 to honor this year’s recipients.
The Connecticut Bankers Association and Connecticut Banking magazine asked bankers throughout Connecticut to nominate individuals they believe were rising stars in the banking industry. Nominees needed to be working at a bank in Connecticut, be 50 years old or younger at any point in 2017, and be making a significant contribution to their institution or community. Many nominations were received, which were vetted by an independent panel of judges, none of whom are active bankers.
Mr. Burton joined Thomaston Savings Bank in 2011 as Assistant Vice President Regional Branch Manager/New Business Development Officer where he was responsible for effective management of production, customer service, coaching and the development of branch staff while prospecting and developing new and existing commercial relationships. In 2013, Todd took on the role of CRA Officer to help develop, implement, and administer all aspects of the Bank’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) compliance program. In his current role as Vice President Retail Banking and CRA Officer, Todd is responsible for providing leadership and guidance to the Marketing area as well as to the branch staff along with administering all aspects of the Bank’s CRA compliance program.
“It’s an honor to have been chosen as a New Leader in Banking. With the constant support, encouragement and mentoring of the executive management team at Thomaston Savings Bank for the past seven years, they have given me, along with all of the employees, the ability to make an impact and share in the success and growth of the bank, while building long lasting relationships and giving back to our communities.”
