Lindsey R. Pinkham, CEO of the Connecticut Bankers Association, will retire in June.

Thomas S. Mongellow is moving from the No. 2 post at the Connecticut Bankers Association (CBA) to succeed Lindsey Pinkham as president and CEO.

The CBA announced March 20 in a post on its website that Mongellow was the unanimous choice of the organization's executive committee to ascend to the lead position. CBA counts some 52 member institutions, among them state- and federally chartered lenders based in and outside Connecticut.

Mongellow will continue as CBA's executive vice president and treasurer until a June date, when Pinkham will officially retire, the CBA post stated.

CBA Chairman Stephen L. Lewis, president and CEO of Thomaston Savings Bank, said in the post that Mongellow was among 53 candidates who applied for the job, among them executives from some CBA member institutions. He finally emerged atop three other finalists.

"During his interview, Tom presented the best vision for moving the CBA forward as his 'Vision 2020' provides clear directions to lead the CBA into the next decade,'' Lewis wrote.

A call Tuesday to CBA's Farmington office revealed Mongellow and Pinkham were traveling in Washington D.C. and unavailable for comment.
