United Bank Adds Kevin Peterssen to its Commercial Lending Team in Worcester
William H.W. Crawford, IV, Chief Executive Officer of United Bank and United Financial Bancorp, Inc., today announced the hiring of Kevin Peterssen, CPA, of Worcester, Mass., adding another proven and reputable banker to its commercial lending team in Worcester.
Peterssen most recently held the position of Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer for People’s United Bank for the Worcester region, where he was responsible for business development in business banking and the middle market as well as managing and expanding the People’s United’s existing commercial portfolio. He was promoted to that position in 2014 after serving as Assistant Vice President/Commercial Loan Officer.
Peterssen also brings a valuable skill set to United Bank, with his dual experience in a customer-facing role as well as a strong understanding of credit and financial statement analysis. Peterssen earned an MBA and Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting from Assumption College in Worcester and earned his CPA designation in 2010. He was in public accounting for almost three years before he joined People’s United Bank.
“Eighteen months ago we recruited a commercial banking team led by Tom McGregor who we hired to turn the Greater Worcester region into a successful and profitable growth market for us. I am pleased to report that they’ve achieved significant success in just a short period of time and by recruiting other talented, Worcester-based commercial bankers like Kevin we now have another teammate in this market dedicated to winning new business and taking care of existing customers while reinforcing our well-deserved reputation for delivering exceptional customer service,” said Crawford.
