Lisa J. Oliver

Chair of the Board, President and CEO

Lisa Oliver brings over 30 years of financial services experience to her role as President and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. As the 5th President in the Bank’s 99-year history, she’s the first woman to assume the role. In 2020, Oliver was appointed the Bank’s first Chair of Board of Directors.

A passionate advocate for volunteerism, Oliver is deeply entrenched in the Cape’s philanthropic community. Among her notable accomplishments since joining The Coop is the establishment of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod Foundation Trust, launched in 2018.  “The Coop Foundation” will significantly expand the bank’s philanthropic reach, awarding grants to 501(c)(3) organizations that meet the fundamental needs and challenges of people in the communities the bank serves.

Oliver is also a board member of The Cape Cod Foundation and Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce where she is also Treasurer; an Ambassador for the YMCA of Cape Cod; and a Member of Women United, an affinity group of the Cape & Islands United Way. In 2019, she received the Distinguished Citizens Award from Cape Cod & Islands Council, Boy Scouts of America for her exemplary community service and dedication to scouting and the community. She frequently speaks to business and civic organizations and was a guest presenter at the 2018 BAI Banking Conference, speaking on the topic of “High Touch Coaching in a Digital World.”  Most recently she was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Bankers Association.

Prior to leading The Coop, she spent 25 years at Cleveland, Ohio-based KeyBank where she rose quickly and assumed several senior leadership roles. Before relocating back to the Northeast, she was the Executive Vice President and Head of Business Banking, leading the company’s $3 billion business unit. Early in her career, she led business banking teams across Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York as the Northeast Sales Executive. After moving to Cleveland, Oliver served as the President of the Northeast Ohio Region for 13 years leading the retail, commercial, business, and private banking sales teams. During her 25 years at KeyBank, she was deeply involved in Ohio’s philanthropic community, including Board positions with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, United Way, American Heart Association, Gilmour Academy, and the Cleveland Botanical Garden. She was honored by the YWCA Greater Cleveland as a Woman of Achievement.

A graduate of Colgate University where she studied International Relations and French, Lisa went on to complete an Executive Leadership Program at Case Western Reserve University. She was raised in Kingston, New York and spent many years in the Northeast prior to moving to Ohio to continue her career with KeyBank. No stranger to Cape Cod, she spent the last 25 years vacationing on the Outer Cape. Her love of our beautiful and close-knit community was a driving force in her desire to relocate here as an empty-nester with her husband, a native of Sharon, Massachusetts, and two black labs.  She has two grown sons.
