M&T Mortgage, Buffalo, has opened a West Coast operation. And it has hired a home-lending star to get the venture going.
Jeffrey A. Evershed, former president and chief executive of Keycorp Mortgage Co., will head up M&T's western division. He will run the operation out of Portland, Ore., his hometown. Another former Keycorp executive, Paul M. Westby, also joins M&T as an executive vice president.
