Key Bank

Shawn Seale is the branch manager of Key Bank, state Route 104 East, Oswego.

Seale, 33, majored in business management and minored in marketing in college. He started as a teller at Whitney Bank in 1999, working his way to branch manager by 2004. He is board of directors’ president for the Rotary Club, a United Way board member, and is on the membership committee for the Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce.

“I consider my family my most significant accomplishment,” he said. “I’ve been married for 10 years and have two wonderful children.” He is married to Julie, and the couple has two children, Devon and Emily.

Economic uncertainty across the nation has created great concern among bank customers. “Lately, most questions and outcomes are focused around FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation),” he said. “Customers come in worried about the safety of their money. It is very encouraging to see the relief they have when they know their money is safe, that they better understand how FDIC works and how coverage is often higher than they expect.”

Seale is also instrumental in mentoring employees. “We will put together a plan and set specific goals to help that employee achieve their goal,” he said. “The goal can be either personal or professional. I believe this helps make the workplace more enjoyable.” Seale enjoys helping people solve problems. “I also like to listen to my customers so that I know exactly what their needs are,” he said. “I believe this sets me apart from my competitors.” (LS)
