His experience working with the Byline leadership team in roles of increasing responsibility makes him a perfect fit to assume the role of Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer as we continue to implement our growth strategy. During Tom’s nine years at Byline, he has been a key contributor as Corporate Treasurer, leading the Bank’s asset-liability management and strategy and playing a key role in capital management, including our IPO.”
“In addition, Sherylle has been a valuable and dedicated member of the finance team, and her knowledge, experience and leadership skills make her an excellent choice for the position of Chief Accounting Officer,” added Herencia.
“It has been an absolute privilege for all of us at Byline to work with Lindsay for the past nine years and we wish her all the best as she transitions to her new opportunity. Her hard work, leadership, deep experience and commitment to excellence have been instrumental in the execution of our strategy and transformation of the company from a privately held bank to the largest headquartered publicly traded community bank in Chicago,” said Alberto J. Paracchini, President of Byline Bancorp, Inc.
”Byline seeks excellence in everything we do as we strive to have a meaningful impact on our clients, communities, and each other.
