“Mike’s deep experience in Maine and New Hampshire gives him the knowledge, experience and relationships that will help expand NBT’s presence and continue our incredible track record of growth in the region,” Twitchell said in a news release. 

John H. Watt Jr., NBT Bank president and CEO, said, “Kim has superbly represented the NBT brand in Maine for eight years and now holds an enterprise-wide leadership role. Mike will assume responsibility for a critical strategic growth initiative at NBT.”

O'Reilly will lead NBT’s team of bankers in Maine and oversee strategy execution across New England.

O’Reilly has more than 30 years of commercial banking experience in Maine and New Hampshire. Prior to joining NBT, he was senior vice president and director of New Hampshire development at Bangor Savings Bank.

“We’re looking forward to Mike’s contributions that will, no doubt, complement the efforts of our talented team of New England bankers,” said Sarah Halliday, NBT Bank president of commercial banking.

“His commitment to understanding the needs of clients and providing customized solutions aligns with our approach to community banking that is built on experienced local teams delivering the tools and resources to help the customers and communities we serve to succeed.”

O’Reilly earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Maine and took part in the New England School of Banking program at Williams College.

He is actively involved in the community, and serves as a board member and stewardship committee chair for Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire, a board member for the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire and an advisory board member for the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center.
