On Monday, March 6, 2017 Lisa Oliver became the 5th President of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod and the first female to assume the role in the Bank’s 95 year history. Oliver brings thirty-plus years of financial services experience to the post, including twenty five years at Cleveland, Ohio-based KeyBank where she rose quickly and assumed several senior leadership roles. 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 the commercial and private banking sales teams, and led the Bank’s extensive philanthropic initiatives. Earlier in her career, she served as the Northeast Sales Executive and Segment Leader, leading business banking teams across Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.
A passionate advocate for volunteerism, Lisa has been deeply entrenched in Ohio’s philanthropic community for the past two decades. She’s served in numerous leadership capacities with organizations including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, United Way, American Heart Association, Gilmour Academy, and Cleveland Botanical Garden, among many 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.
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 join KeyBank. No stranger to Cape Cod, she 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.
