Community Bank N.A. Grows Commercial Banking Team in Albany, NY

Community Bank N.A. is pleased to announce that Sue McCarthy has joined its team as vice president, commercial banker in Albany, New York. With the addition of McCarthy, the bank’s Albany Commercial Banking team will grow to six team members.

In her new role, McCarthy will grow, develop and manage new commercial banking relationships in the Upstate New York region within the technology, manufacturing, higher education, nonprofit and service industries. She will be responsible for providing direct service to commercial customers, including loans, deposits, and other commercial products and services.

McCarthy brings to the team extensive experience in middle-market lending, client relationships, business banking, and mergers and acquisitions. She has more than 20 years of experience in commercial banking focused on lending, treasury management sales and client management. Most recently, McCarthy was a treasury management sales relationship manager with KeyBank in Albany, where she managed business banking portfolios.

“We’re thrilled to welcome someone with Sue’s level of experience to our team,” Community Bank N.A. Commercial Team Leader Ken Countermine said. “Sue has spent most of her career serving the Capital Region, so no one knows this community better than she does. She’s a true expert when it comes to serving the needs of our customers and believes in the importance of long-term client relationships. I know she will be a big asset to our team.”

Since expanding into the Capital Region in early 2018 with the creation of its commercial banking office, Community Bank N.A. has experienced steady growth under the leadership of Capital Region Executive Jeff Levy. The bank closed on its acquisition of Kinderhook Bank in July 2019 and has 11 branches throughout five counties.
