KeyBank’s Southwest Ohio District President Ed Reilly retires Wednesday, after about six years in the region’s top spot for KeyBank.
As district president, Reilly oversaw consumer and business banking and wealth management in the region from Northern Kentucky to Dayton to Springfield.
Reilly, 59, feels he’s come full circle, having started and now ending his 36-year banking career in Dayton. His first job out of college in 1977 was at Dayton’s First National Bank, which later became National City and in recent years was acquired by PNC. He joined KeyBank in 2006.
“Thirty-six years in the business is a good run. I’ve enjoyed the business and have done well at it. My wife and I are just looking forward to retirement together,” Reilly said.
KeyBank has not yet named a successor. Reilly said the bank is vetting candidates internally and externally.
Cleveland’s KeyBank is the fourth largest bank in the Dayton metro by deposits of approximately $1.1 billion, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
