Patriot National Bancorp in Stamford, Conn., has a new president.
The $683 million-asset company said in a press release Wednesday that it had promoted Richard Muskus Jr. to fill the post. Muskus, who joined Patriot in 1995, previously served as the company’s chief lending officer.
“Our interest is to continue to groom and promote from within our organization,” Michael Carrazza, Patriot’s chairman and CEO, said in the release. Muskus’ “experience, capabilities and long-term commitment to Patriot make him ideally suited and the perfect fit to lead Patriot forward.”
Muskus succeeded Peter Cureau, who had been Patriot’s interim president. Patriot said Cureau will continue to work with Carrazza in the office of the chairman.
