For the second year in a row, Frank H. Hamlin III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Canandaigua National Bank & Trust Co. (CNB), is listed among the top 30 financial leaders in an annual ranking by the Rochester Business Journal.

“It’s not just about the numbers” reflected Hamlin, “As a member of the financial services industry, we are having direct impact on critical components in our customers’ lives. The advice, services, and meaningful relationships we provide matter for the well-being of entire community”.

Hamlin is recognized for spending his career helping members of the Rochester community navigate increasingly ever-changing financial circumstances. According to RBJ – Hamlin and the other honorees helped Rochester’s banking and finance industry navigate two-plus years of COVID-related uncertainty, significant supply chain and labor disruptions.

“Frank’s leadership and commitment to our customers, bank associates, and community have been the foundation for CNB providing exceptional financial services and community support,” commented Dan Fuller, Vice Chairman of the Board, Canandaigua National Corporation.
