Kearny Bank has appointed Sean Byrnes as senior vice president and chief accounting officer, the bank announced Thursday.
Byrnes is based in the bank’s Fairfield corporate office. He now directs all aspects of corporate accounting, including income tax, financial and regulatory reporting, financial planning and analysis, accounting policy, and the allowance for credit losses.
Prior to joining Kearny Bank, Byrnes was the senior accounting officer for Amboy Bank in Old Bridge; and prior to that, he was managing director and controller for New York City-based Cantor Commercial Real Estate.
“At a company of our size, the chief accounting officer has a broad array of responsibilities,” said Keith Suchodolski, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “It’s a complex assignment at which I am confident Sean, based on his professional and educational backgrounds, will excel.”
Byrnes is both a certified public accountant and a CFA charter holder.
