Citizens Financial Group in Providence, R.I., has named two new state presidents for Citizens Bank in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
The $137 billion-asset company promoted Lisa Maass to lead its Connecticut market. Maass was previously the head of middle-market banking in Connecticut. She has worked for Citizens since 1994.
Citizens did not identify the previous Connecticut state president in its news release, but the Hartford Courantreported that Maass succeeded Edward O."Ned" Handy III, who left Citizens in 2013 to become chief operating officer at the $3.6 billion-asset Washington Trust Bancorp in Westerly, R.I.
Citizens also promoted Quincy Miller to be its Massachusetts president. Miller previously was president of business banking for companies with yearly revenue of less than $25 million, and he will retain authority for that group. He has worked for Citizens for six years, after joining the company from M&T Bank.
Miller succeeded Jerry Sargent as Massachusetts president; Sargent will now lead Citizens' middle-market business, focusing on borrowers with between $25 million and $500 million in yearly revenue.
