2023 Power 50: 24. Andreas Kapetanopoulos

Andreas Kapetanopoulos

When New York-based NBT Bank was looking to break into the Connecticut market a few years ago, it searched for a veteran banker with local knowledge and contacts to lead those efforts. 

It hired Andreas Kapetanopoulos to establish a regional office in Greater Hartford, and recruit a team of commercial bankers.

Kapetanopoulos has helped NBT Bank, with $11.5 billion in assets, grow its Connecticut footprint since then, opening branches in West Hartford and Glastonbury.

Most recently, NBT made its biggest splash yet in Connecticut, announcing plans to acquire Lakeville-based Salisbury Bancorp for $204 million. The deal, which is expected to close in the second quarter, will extend NBT’s reach in Connecticut and the Hudson Valley region of New York.

Over the course of an approximately 30-year banking career mostly focused on Greater Hartford, Kapetanopoulos gained experience in many facets of the business, including commercial, small business, municipal and retail banking. Prior to joining NBT, he was senior vice president of SBA and small business lending for People’s United Bank.

Before that he worked at Farmington Bank and TD Bank. 

Kapetanopoulos earned his MBA and bachelor’s degree from Boston University.
