WATERBURY, CT - Webster Bank, a leading regional bank serving businesses and consumers from metro New York City to Boston, Mass., on Tuesday announced Bernard Garrigues as its new executive vice president and chief human resources officer (CHRO). Garrigues reports directly to Joe Savage, president, and is based in Webster’s corporate headquarters in Waterbury. At Webster, Garrigues will be responsible for all aspects of Human Resources including talent management, staffing, learning and development, and compensation and benefits.

“Bernard’s strong background and global expertise in building diverse talent and organizational capabilities will prove valuable as Webster grows and deepens its relationship with consumers and businesses across our markets,” Savage said. “His leadership will nurture our culture as a valuesdriven, community-focused bank, and he will guide our differentiation of living up to delivering exceptional customer service.”
