Rockland Trust names new CTO to lead technology buildout
New England Council member, Rockland Trust has named Lee Powlus as its new chief technology and operations officer.
Mr. Powlus, a veteran financial service officer who has served various regional banks and holds two degrees from the University of Vermont, will lead Rockland’s data security, project management, and knowledge management strategies. Under his leadership, the bank will continue to develop its interactive teller machines (ITMs) which allow its customers to virtually connect with bankers to conduct more complex transactions than are possible at standard ATMs. Rockland already operates 26 ITMs with plans to add more over the coming months, according to Patrick Myron, senior vice president of retail network strategy and sales analytics at Rockland.
“Rockland Trust is always looking into the future of technology and how it can help us meet the changing needs of our customers,” Myron said. “Our current focus is incorporating interactive teller machines as part of our efforts to integrate forward-thinking innovation that adds value to our overall network while maintaining the strong relationships our customers expect.”
The New England Council would like to congratulate Mr. Powlus and Rockland Trust on their partnership.
