Signature Bank CEO wins Westchester visionary award

Signature Bank announced that president and CEO Joseph J. DePaolo was named the recipient of the Alfred B. DelBello Visionary Award by the Westchester County Association.

The Alfred B. DelBello Visionary Award applauds visionaries and honors the late chairman emeritus of the Westchester County Association and an outstanding public official, humanitarian and family man.

DePaolo was chosen to receive the honor based on his vision for creating Signature Bank as well as his passion and drive for subsequently growing the institution to $32 billion in assets.

DelBello served on Signature Bank’s board since January 2003. He was a partner in the White Plains law firm of DelBello Donnellan Weingarten Wise & Wiederkehr, LLP and held several public service roles including Lieutenant Governor of the State of New York, Westchester County Executive and Mayor of Yonkers.

While serving on Signature Bank’s Board, DelBello made significant contributions. In his honor, Signature Bank officially dedicated the boardroom at its midtown Manhattan headquarters recently, designating it ‘The Alfred B. DelBello Board Room.’

“All of us at Signature Bank congratulate Joe on this prominent, meaningful and perhaps most importantly, very fitting award,” said Signature Bank Chairman of the Board Scott A. Shay.

“Joe and Al were long-time friends and colleagues. Both possess similar innate qualities — integrity, loyalty, dedication, authenticity and humility — all of which have always been embraced by the colleagues that surrounded them in their respective roles. Joe continues to carry out the original vision of Signature Bank each and every day in his role as its leader and visionary. It is an honor for all of us to work with Joe, just as it was an honor for us to have had the opportunity to work with Al.”
