Patriot National in Connecticut Appoints New CFO


Patriot National Bancorp (PNBK) in Stamford, Conn., has appointed Christina Maier as its new chief financial officer.

Maier will join the $586 million-company on Oct. 1, Patriot said in a filing Tuesday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. She will replace William Gray, who is retiring from his position on Sept. 30.

Maier has more than 30 years of experience as a senior financial officer. She most recently served as senior vice president and director of U.S. accounting and reporting at investment bank Brown Brothers Harriman, where she had worked since 2006. She has also held senior positions at Provident New York Bancorp (PBNY) and Hudson United Bancorp.

Gray joined Patriot in August 2011 and was appointed CFO in December 2012 after his predecessor, Robert O'Connell, retired. Gray will continue to consult with the company through Nov. 30 in order to help with the transition.

Patriot appointed a new chief executive and president, Kenneth Neilson, in February in what chairman Michael Carrazza called a planned transition. Its former chief, Christopher Maher, joined OceanFirst Financial (OCFC) as president and chief operating officer that month.
