It’s the end of an era at Tompkins Mahopac Bank with the announcement that President and CEO Gerald J. Klein, Jr is retiring after spending 26 years at the bank. He is being succeeded by David DeMilia, who currently serves as Senior Vice President.

“It has truly been an honor to lead Tompkins Mahopac Bank. The company’s vision and values, as a community bank, closely align with my personal code of ethics, so it has been an outstanding fit for me. Tompkins Mahopac Bank has encouraged and supported my work over the years in the industry and the community. The team of people here at the bank are exceptional and truly committed to serving the needs of our communities and I remain grateful for their support,” said Klein.

Klein, who serves on the Business Council of Westchester Board of Directors, joined Tompkins Mahopac Bank in 1995 and was executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer before becoming CEO in January 2007. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of the bank and is an Executive Vice President of the bank holding company, Tompkins Financial Corp. Locally, Klein is immediate past Chairman of Putnam Hospital Center Foundation and is a director on the boards of the Putnam Hospital Center, Putnam Economic Development Corp. and SCORE Putnam.

A lifelong resident of Westchester County, DeMilia joined Tompkins Mahopac Bank in 2008. He held a number of positions over the years and is currently the senior commercial lending division manager. “Dave brings strong expertise and leadership in one of our core businesses, commercial banking,” said Tompkins Mahopac Bank Board Chairman Michael Spain. “Gerry Klein is one our region’s great community bankers. Under his visionary leadership, Tompkins Mahopac Bank has become one of the area’s leading community banks,” said BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon. “We wish Dave DeMilia the best of success in his new role,” she added.
