Stamford-based Webster Bank announced it has established a network of community liaison officers across the state, including in Hartford, to provide support and financial education to low-to-moderate income and minority borrowers.

The community liaison officers will work in partnership with Webster's new office of corporate responsibility and cover territory surrounding their base locations in Bridgeport, Hartford, Waterbury, White Plains and Queens, New York, and Boston, Massachusetts. 

The new officers include Kadie Ortiz (Bridgeport), Claudia Riley (Hartford), Robert Jaekle (Waterbury), Yangchen Chadotsang (Queens, New York), and Steve Roussel (Boston, Massachusetts).

Each community liaison officer will partner with existing banking centers in their respective territory to provide additional support, and jointly report to Amy Jakobeit, senior vice president and director of mortgage and consumer lending and Gary Moukhtarian, senior vice president, regional manager. 

In addition to working directly with borrowers, the community liaison officers will work with community-based, charitable and nonprofit organizations; conduct financial literacy workshops and classes on topics such as first-time homebuying; and work with Webster's consumer lending team to increase lending opportunities within these regions to meet local credit needs, according to Webster, which has $65 billion in assets.
