Five Star Bank Names Quinn SVP, Commercial Banking Executive

Five Star Bank hired Kevin Quinn as senior vice president and commercial banking executive beginning Aug. 10. Quinn will report to Martin K. Birmingham, president and CEO of Five Star Bank.

Quinn will assume responsibility for commercial and industrial lending, business banking, cash management, community development and merchant services as well as leadership of Five Star Bank’s referral program, promoting relationship-building and business development between the bank and its insurance and wealth management subsidiaries.

“We are pleased to welcome Kevin Quinn to Five Star Bank. He is a respected banker and community leader,” Birmingham said. “His experience, capability, character and deep understanding of the Buffalo and Upstate New York market position him well to lead our effort to build on the growth Five Star has experienced in this key line of business. Kevin has a proven track record leading and working with teams to deliver comprehensive financial solutions to commercial customers of all sizes. I look forward to supporting his effort to help our business customers and communities succeed.”

Quinn has experience leading commercial banking teams in Upstate NY. He served with HSBC Bank USA – Buffalo for 15 years, most recently as head of commercial banking. In this role, he was HSBC’s senior Upstate NY-based executive, covering a seven-state region, directing activities focused on strengthening relationships with commercial customers and managing HSBC’s community outreach programs in the region, including a focus on education and environmental concerns. He began his career as an attorney with Jones Day in Cleveland and subsequently spent 10 years in commercial banking at M&T Bank.

Quinn will succeed Edward “Ted” Oexle, who announced earlier this summer that he will retire from Five Star Bank as C&I lending executive and Buffalo regional president on Aug. 4.

“Many thanks to Ted for his willingness to go above and beyond for our team as he assists Kevin with the transition and concludes his highly productive and successful banking career,” Birmingham said.

Quinn will be based in Buffalo, NY, at Five Star Bank’s Buffalo regional office on Spindrift Drive.
