Byline Bancorp succession plan underway

Chicago-based Byline Bancorp, Inc., announced that Senior Vice President and Treasurer Thomas Bell III will succeed Lindsay Corby as CFO, effective Aug. 15.

Bell, who has spent more than 30 years in banking, has been with the bank since its 2013 recapitalization.

 Byline Bancorp Executive Chair and CEO Roberto Herencia called him “an integral part of the Byline growth story. His experience working with the Byline leadership team in roles of increasing responsibility makes him a perfect fit.” 

Corby, an executive officer of both Byline Bank and its parent company Byline Bancorp, is leaving the company to take a position at a non-banking financial services company.  

Byline Bancorp President Alberto Paracchini said Corby’s “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.” 

Also, Byline Bank SVP/Corporate Controller Maria Sherylle Olano will also assume the role of SVP, chief accounting officer of both the bank holding company and bank in mid-August. Olano has spent more than 20 years in banking and accounting.
