Merchant takes the reins at Jewett City Savings Bank

Kevin C. Merchant, a native of Norwich, has assumed the position of president and chief executive officer of Jewett City Savings Bank following the June 30 retirement of Reino E. Horstmeyer.

Merchant has over three decades of financial services experience, and has spent the past 26 years with Jewett City Savings Bank. He joined the Bank in 1981 as an assistant vice president, and was promoted to vice president
two years later. He was named senior vice president in 2000.

“Kevin is a very talented banker,” Horstmeyer said of his successor. “He is
well respected by his colleagues, and will bring a new enthusiasm and
vision to the position.”

A graduate of Norwich Free Academy, Merchant went on to study at Central
CT State University in New Britain, earning a bachelor’s degree in
administrative sciences. He is a member of Jewett City Businessmen’s
Club and several banking organizations and local chambers of commerce.
Until recently, he was also actively involved with his daughters,
Kristen and Lindsay, in their youth basketball and softball activities
and coached the Connecticut Green Devils AAU fastpitch softball team.

Merchant lives in Sterling with his wife, Lori, and stepchildren Ariel and Zachary.
