SYRACUSE — M&T Bank has announced that Steve Gorczynski, a 16-year M&T employee, has been named Central New York regional president. He succeeds Allen Naples, who is retiring after 16 years with M&T Bank. Naples’ 48-year banking career culminated in his role as M&T’s regional president, overseeing a region that stretches across Central New York and the Mohawk Valley.
Gorczynski previously served as commercial bank senior group manager for M&T in Central New York, after working as a commercial relationship manager. Earlier in his career, he spent time with HSBC in Central New York as regional commercial executive and as an auditor at KPMG Peat Marwick.
“Serving as regional president has been a tremendous honor. I’m proud of the work we’ve done to uplift our community, and I’m grateful for the customers that I’ve had the great fortune of building relationships with over my years with M&T and in the banking industry,” Naples said.
“Furthermore, I am pleased to welcome Steve to his role as regional president. For years, he has proven his commitment to strengthening the Central New York community and supporting the success of local businesses. He will do an outstanding job as the bank’s leader in the region,” Naples added.
“I’m excited to get started as regional president – in this period of economic recovery, there’s so much work to be done to help Central New York grow and thrive,” Gorczynski said. “As a bank built for communities, our team at M&T knows it’s essential to step up during times like these and do our part to uplift the regions we serve. We’re committed to making a difference in people’s lives, and I look forward to the work ahead to ensure we meet the unique and diverse needs of Central New York.
