Neilson as President and Chief Executive Officer of both the Company and the Bank effective March 18, 2013, pending regulatory approval.

Mr. Neilson currently serves as a Board Member of Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.

"We appreciate the many hours of hard work and the substantial efforts Mr. Maher has made over the past two and a half years and are pleased with the results he has achieved," said Carrazza.
