Five Star Bank's parent company has added a prominent Buffalo media leader to its board of directors.
Donald K. Boswell, 65, the president and CEO of the Western New York Public Broadcasting Association, was elected at the annual meeting of Financial Institutions in Warsaw this week.
Boswell serves on the board of New Era Cap, and previously served on the board of HSBC Bank USA. He filled a vacancy created by the retirement of John E. Benjamin, who had served on the board since 2002. Benjamin several years ago also served as the bank's interim CEO for a seven-month period, following an abrupt leadership change.
Financial Institutions' board consists of 11 members.
