M&T Bank Corp. has hired a chief risk officer.
Donald Truslow comes to M&T after serving as executive director of the Financial Stability Industry Council at the Financial Services Roundtable since February 2011.
The FSR is an industry lobbying group that represents 100 financial services companies in the United States.
He will be an executive vice president and a member of M&T’s management committee, officials said. He will be based at M&T’s corporate offices in Buffalo.
Truslow was chief risk officer at Wachovia Corp. for eight years before resigning in 2008 amid its mounting losses because of the financial crisis. Wachovia was acquired by Wells Fargo & Co. in December 2008.
He had been with the Charlotte, N.C.-based bank since graduation from the University of Virginia in 1980.
