In his new role, Colestro will lead Northwest Bank’s retail lending and business banking teams and their growth initiatives across the bank’s footprint.
“It is an honor to lead Northwest Bank’s retail lending and business banking growth alongside our dedicated team of banking professionals. I look forward to leveraging my previous experience to continue serving and supporting our valued customers in this new role,” Colestro said.
