Webster Bank is pleased to announce that Xana Dolan, vice president, service of process, research and background screening, has been
selected by the Connecticut Bankers Association (CBA) and Connecticut Banking magazine as
one of the state’s “New Leaders in Banking.”
Dolan is one of 15 Connecticut bankers named to this year’s list. She and her fellow nominees
were honored during a recent event held at Mohegan Sun which was attended by more than 300
bankers from across the state.
Webster nominated Dolan, a Wallingford resident, because her drive to succeed and her
commitment to the communities where she lives and works make her the perfect example of a
rising star in the banking world, said Kim Syrop, senior vice president, director of change
management, ACH and Wire, and Xana’s nominator.
“Xana’s team is impressed with her drive to succeed,” Syrop said, adding, “They appreciate her
‘roll-up-her-sleeves, let’s work together’ attitude. Her community respects and admires her
willingness to pitch in wherever there is a need to be met.”
During her seven years at Webster Bank, Dolan has taken on extra job responsibilities and
excelled at finding ways to streamline work processes, promote training opportunities for her
colleagues and direct reports, and increase revenue and efficiencies in her department. She also
serves on the bank’s leadership committee for the employee United Way campaign, and has been
a volunteer in her community as a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters. She also has
volunteered at CT Food Bank for more than 12 years.
Bankers are nominated by their fellow employees and have been determined to be outstanding
employees, managers or business leaders who make a notable impact within their bank and
community. Nominations are reviewed by an independent panel of judges who then select 15
individuals from banks across Connecticut to the final list of “New Leaders in Banking.”
