Webster Names New Phila Area Regional President

Webster Bank announced Scott Meves as its new senior vice president, commercial banking, and regional president for the greater Philadelphia area. Meves will be based in Radnor, PA, and will lead Webster’s expansion into the Pennsylvania market.

Meves joins Webster from Brown Brothers Harriman where he was senior vice president and group manager. During his 11 years there, he was successful in developing long-term relationships and leading a team of experienced bankers in middle market regional lending and media and communications finance. Prior to Brown Brothers, Meves spent more than 20 years at PNC Bank in Philadelphia.

In his new role, Meves will be the senior middle market banker in the Pennsylvania market and will report to John Ciulla, executive vice president, commercial banking.

“Scott brings to Webster a very valuable combination of deep corporate lending expertise in middle market banking and strong relationships in both the larger regional market and Philadelphia itself,” said Ciulla.
