The Westchester Bank last week announced the appointment of Paul Fernandes as vice president and branch manager of its White Plains branch on Mamaroneck Avenue.
“I was extremely fortunate to have been born and raised in Westchester. It’s an extraordinary community to be part of, and it’s a privilege to help local businesses find creative ways to grow,” Fernandes said in the company announcement.
Prior to joining The Westchester Bank, Fernandes was a vice president and branch manager for Capital One in Eastchester and spent 10 years working at The Bank of New York in Westchester County. He is a member of the Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce and longtime member of the Mount Vernon Portuguese Club.
“Paul’s background is an excellent fit for us. The White Plains staff will be well served by his leadership and strong interpersonal skills,” said John M. Tolomer, president and CEO of The Westchester Bank. “From day one, The Westchester Bank culture has been very customer-centric and our business model, Banking Made Personal, continues to set us apart from other, larger banks. We’re fortunate to have Paul, who understands and executes that business model with each customer in need of a banking solution.”
