Banker Recognized for United Way Fundraising Efforts

PROVIDENCE, R.I./WATERBURY, Connecticut, June 19, 2017 - The United Way of Rhode Island honored Webster banker Jason Carosi, senior vice president, Business Banking, as a top fundraiser for its 2016 campaign.

He recently accepted the award on behalf of Webster Bank at United Way's annual Campaign Leaders Thank You Luncheon.

Carosi was a member of Webster's Employee United Way Campaign Leadership Board in 2016, representing the bank's Providence, Rhode Island-area bankers.

Webster's 2016 Employee United Way Campaign was chaired by Sam Hanna, senior

vice president, who is also based in Providence and leads Webster's Middle Market Banking unit.

United Way of Rhode Island identifies and helps resolve pressing issues in its communities through partnerships with schools, government agencies, businesses such as Webster Bank and others. Its main areas of focus include the education, income and health of people in the communities it serves.

"Our Rhode Island bankers, under Jason's leadership, certainly rallied to embrace this campaign," said Kathy Luria, Webster's senior vice president, Community Affairs, "and it's an honor for us that the Webster employee campaign, led so expertly by Sam last year, has been recognized in this way."

In addition to Jason's work with United Way of Rhode Island, he also is chair of the Rhode Island Leadership Board of the American Lung Association, on the development committee and a board member of Junior Achievement Rhode Island, and is active with the Rhode Island Executive Roundtable, Turnaround Management Association, the Providence Chapter of the USA 500 Club, and a volunteer with the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance of RI. He resides in Cranston, Rhode Island.
