Thomaston Savings CEO Joins National Community Bankers Council
The American Bankers Association Community Bankers Council has a new voice for Connecticut.
The chair selected Thomaston Savings Bank president and CEO Stephen Lewis to join the Community Bankers Council this year.
“Community banks play such an important role in our banking industry,” Lewis said.
“This appointment gives me the opportunity to represent Connecticut and advocate for the continued success of America’s hometown banks.”
Lewis has served on the Connecticut Community Banks Association for many years in various roles. In June of 2019 he was elected president of the association.
The national council is made up of roughly 100 bankers from across the county. They work to identify and respond to community bank priorities, and represent community banking in ABA’s government relations policymaking process.
During one of its two annual meetings in November, bankers discussed a range of issues, including legislative priorities for the new Congress, data aggregation, P2P payments liability, and cannabis banking.
