First County Bank’s New Canaan Branch Manager and Assistant Vice President Michael Victor was recently promoted to regional manager responsible for seven of the bank’s branches in lower Fairfield County. In addition, Assistant Branch Manager Aitza Cabrera was promoted to branch manager of the New Canaan office.
Victor, now based at the 1006 Boston Post Rd. branch in Darien, is responsible for day-to-day operations of that branch and has supervisory responsibilities for the following branches: New Canaan, Greenwich, and four Stamford branches located at 160 Atlantic St., 2950 Summer St., 1980 West Main St. and 637 Shippan Ave.
“At First County Bank we value experience and prefer to promote from within. And for these two professionals, we have seen tremendous growth in responsibilities and results at our New Canaan branch and beyond,” said Katherine Harris, president and chief operating officer of First County Bank.
“Mike Victor has been the bedrock for our New Canaan branch for many years and we knew the time was right for his promotion. He’s also been very involved in directing the bank’s financial literacy program where the bank hosts presentations and discussions for the public based on the FDIC’s Money Smart for Adults instructional curriculum,” added Harris. “He’s a real asset to the bank and we look forward to his continued success.”
Since 2007, Victor held the position of branch manager of First County Bank’s New Canaan branch. From 2004 to 2007, Victor was branch manager of 660 Main St., one of the bank’s three Norwalk branches. He has been in the financial services business since 1979. Victor lives in Bridgeport and has three children.
Cabrera held the title of assistant branch manager of the New Canaan branch since 2007. She joined First County Bank in 2001 as a customer service representative and moved through the ranks to become a teller supervisor in the training department before becoming an assistant branch manager. Prior to joining First County Bank, she worked at another local bank for one year. Cabrera lives in Stamford and has three children.
