Pathfinder Bank

Rachel Kesler is the municipal and business deposit sales officer at Pathfinder Bank in Oswego.

Her job entails the management of the municipal lending and deposit portfolio. Kesler, 38, also manages the banks merchant services program and Visa Credit Card program at Pathfinder. Prior to her current position at Pathfinder Bank, she was an employee of 17 years at KeyBank where she possessed a variety of positions.

In 2006 when she was working with Key, Kesler ranked No. 1 in equipment leasing for the entire Central New York district. According to Kesler, her favorite role as branch manager at KeyBank was mentoring and coaching employees. “It was very rewarding to witness growth in both the team and individuals in a branch that was previously struggling in certain areas,” Kessler said.

Aside from her work at Pathfinder, Kesler is the treasurer of the Greater Mexico Chamber of Commerce and recently became a member of the Oswego Rotary Club. Kesler will be helping to coordinate the silent auction for this year’s “Scrabblefest,” a function of the Literacy Volunteers of Oswego County.

Within her profession, Kesler is driven by her enjoyment of customer service. “Most banks offer the same products and services,” Kesler said. “What sets one apart from another is how the client is treated. This is something you decide for yourself.” (AC)
