SBT Bancorp (SBTB) in Simsbury, Conn., has hired David MacKenzie as its chief mortgage and consumer lending officer.

MacKenzie joins the $382 million-asset SBT from Patriot National Bank, a unit of Patriot National Bancorp (PNBK) in Stamford, Conn., where he was senior vice president of the residential and consumer lending groups. He succeeded Michael Sheahan, who resigned from SBT in July to pursue other opportunities, a company spokeswoman said.

MacKenzie will oversee all mortgage and consumer loan activities of SBT and its Simsbury Bank.

MacKenzie's "extensive experience in all aspects of mortgage lending and servicing position him well to lead our high performing team toward its growth goals," Martin Geitz, SBT's president and chief executive, said in a press release Friday.

Previously, MacKenzie held senior management posts at Greenpoint Financial and Citigroup's (NYSE: C) mortgage banking division.

SBT hired a new chief financial officer, Richard Sudol, in August.
