To our Customers, Neighbors, and Friends,
It is my pleasure to introduce to you the new President and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. We are thrilled to welcome Lisa Oliver to our community. When she assumes the post on Monday, March 6, 2017 Lisa will become only the 5th President in the Bank’s 95 year history and the first female President of the Bank.
This exciting appointment is the result of an extensive search and interviewing process conducted by our Board, one that began many months ago. Lisa was unanimously chosen for her dynamic leadership, impressive experience, proven track record of success, commitment to customer relationships, and passion for philanthropy.
Lisa brings thirty-plus years of experience in the financial industry to our Bank, including twenty five years at Cleveland, Ohio-based KeyBank. Most recently she served as Executive Vice President and Head of Business Banking, leading the company’s $3 billion business banking unit. Her career path at KeyBank also included thirteen years as President of the bank’s Greater Cleveland District, where she oversaw the Bank’s 85 branch locations as well as commercial banking and private banking sales teams in the region and led the bank’s extensive philanthropic initiatives. Closer to home, she held an earlier post as Northeast Sales Executive and Segment Leader, where she led teams across Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York. The long list of accolades and awards that she’s earned throughout her career is a testament to her tremendous ability to lead successful teams and organizations.
A passionate advocate for volunteerism, Lisa has also been deeply entrenched in Ohio’s non-profit community. She’s served in a variety of leadership capacities with organizations including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, United Way, American Heart Association, Gilmour Academy, and Cleveland Botanical Garden, among others. She was also Co-Executive Chair of the Young Professionals Key Business Networking Group and was honored by the YWCA Greater Cleveland as a Woman of Achievement Recipient. This prestigious award is presented to a select group of women who have achieved extraordinary accomplishments through career success, community service, leadership, mentoring, and dedication to YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.
No stranger to Cape Cod, Lisa has spent time here as a visitor. Her love of our beautiful and close-knit community was a driving force in her desire to relocate here with her husband, two children and two black labs.
Lisa looks forward to connecting with the community and meeting each of you in the weeks and months ahead. To that end, she will be hosting a number of informal receptions at all of our branches. Please stay tuned for those dates and take the opportunity to say hello over a cup of coffee.
For the past 95 years, we’ve prided ourselves on a commitment to true community banking, where local decision-making and local relationships are at the heart of every transaction. I am extremely proud to pass this important torch to Lisa, who will continue that tradition while shepherding our Bank into its next hundred years.
Please join me in congratulating and welcoming Lisa to our very special community.
Joel G. Crowell
President and CEO
