Kimberly Downey of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company Receive New Leaders in Banking Award
December 15, 2016
Kim Downey, Vice President, Trust Officer at Salisbury Bank and Trust Company was chosen as one of the select few New Leaders in Banking. Over the last few months, the Connecticut Bankers Association (CBA) and Connecticut Banking magazine asked bankers throughout Connecticut to nominate their peers for the leadership award. Nominees must work at a CBA Member Bank, be an outstanding employee, manager, or business leader, and be making a notable impact within their bank and community.
The CBA received a number of nominations, which were vetted by an independent panel of judges, none of whom are active bankers or CBA staff members. Only thirteen individuals were chosen for recognition. A special awards banquet is being held on January 12, 2017 for award recipients.
“Kim has been a valued member of the trust department team and a trust, estate and banking resource for her Salisbury Bank colleagues for over 10 years. She has also dedicated a good amount of her time outside of the Bank for volunteer activities in the community. We are extremely proud to have Kim recognized by the CBA as a New Leader in Banking.” said Steve Essex, Executive Vice President, Salisbury Trust Wealth Advisory Services.
