SOUTHINGTON, CONN. – The Connecticut Bankers Association (CBA) announced its annual New Leaders in Banking, recognizing outstanding bank employees, managers and business leaders in Connecticut. Honorees were selected by an independent panel of judges vetting nominees from CBA-member banks for their passion and impact within their bank and their community. The CBA honored this year’s New Leaders in Banking with a special banquet January 13 at Mohegan Sun in conjunction with the annual BankWorld conference. Of the 13 individuals honored, 11 members of this year’s class represent COCC clients.

“We are proud to see our clients recognized for their outstanding contributions not only to their banks, but also to their communities,” noted Michelle Orsini, VP of Relationship Management at COCC. “We congratulate all of this year’s New Leaders for this award.”
