After four decades of transformative leadership, George Hamlin IV is stepping down from his roles as chairman of Canandaigua National & Trust Company (CNB) and Canandaigua National Corporation (CNC), along with his duties as officer and senior policy advisor.
While Hamlin will maintain a seat on the Board of Directors, he will be succeeded by Michael Goonan, a board member since 2015, according to a statement from CNB.
Hamlin’s tenure at CNB, which began in 1979, witnessed the bank’s significant growth from $100 million in total assets to $5 billion, turning it into the largest locally owned bank in the Rochester area. Recognized for his community service, Hamlin served on several boards, including the Federal Reserve and University of Rochester Medical Center, among others.
In addition, Hamlin’s distinguished military service includes three tours in Vietnam as an Air Force fighter pilot. CNB has announced plans to honor Hamlin’s extensive career and community service in October.
