Joseph Kenner of Greyston Appointed to TMB Board of Directors

Tompkins Mahopac Bank has appointed Joseph Kenner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Greyston, to its board of directors. Kenner brings over a decade of experience in both financial expertise and public policy to the board, having served as Deputy Commissioner for the Westchester County Department of Social Services prior to his three years at Greyston, where he served as Vice President for Programs and Partnerships before being appointed President and CEO in March, 2020. His innovative leadership and ability to collaborate with diverse stakeholders will ensure that Tompkins continues to deliver the best services possible to its customers.

“As the economy continues to shift with the pandemic, it’s crucial that we remain steady in delivering a consistently high level of service to our valued customers,” said Tompkins Mahopac Bank President and CEO David DeMilia. “Having Joe on our board will only underscore this commitment. We know his leadership with both risk management and government operations will benefit our organization as a whole, with our customers at the heart of it.”

Kenner is a graduate of Williams College and holds an MBA in financial management from Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. He began his career as an underwriter for Chubb & Son, Inc. before moving into insurance risk management as an analyst for Lehman Brothers, Inc. He worked with PepsiCo for the following nine years in positions that included treasury manager and sales strategy manager. In 2010, Joe fulfilled his desire to have an impact on public policy affecting the country’s most disadvantaged and joined Westchester County as senior advisor of government operations. He was the first African American elected as a village trustee in the Village of Port Chester, N.Y., where he served as Deputy Mayor from 2011-12. Most recently, Kenner was appointed by then-New York Lieutenant Governor (now Governor) Kathy Hochul to the Hudson Valley Economic Development Council Board and the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council. He has served on numerous boards, including Conscious Capitalism, Inc., the New York City Workforce Investment Board, and as an Advisory Council member of the REDF (Regional Economic Development Fund) Impact Investing Fund (RIIF).

“It’s clear from Joe’s service and experience that he knows how to inspire positive change,” said Chairman of the Tompkins Mahopac Bank Board of Directors Michael Spain. “But more than that, it’s his passion for collaboration and dedication to bettering communities that makes him a perfect fit here at Tompkins. We know our customers will feel the impact of the knowledge he brings to the table.”
