KeyBank Re-Establishes Boston Commercial Banking Office, Unveils Team

March 03, 2017, 08:01 AM

KeyBank has re-established its Boston commercial banking office and announced its full market team, which includes Boston market leader Jed Hall, Ethan Powell, senior vice president, commercial banking; and Matthew Quinn, vice president, commercial banking.

“We view Greater Boston as a significant market for growth opportunities for Key’s commercial banking practice, particularly the opportunity to work with larger middle market businesses,” said Sterling Kozlowski, KeyBank’s New England regional executive. “Over the past year, we have strengthened our Boston commercial banking team and integrated them into the overall KeyBank family. We want to help our middle market clients achieve their goals by providing direct access to KeyBank’s full suite of financial services, products, and solutions. We are excited about what the future holds for us in the region.”

KeyBank’s Boston-based commercial banking team works in close collaboration with the bank’s Boston-based capital markets, commercial real estate, and asset based lending businesses as well as Pacific Crest Securities, the technology specialists at KeyBanc Capital Markets.

Team leader Jed Hall joined Key in late 2015 after 22 years at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. (BBH) in Boston, where he had responsibility for corporate banking, healthcare banking and the not-for-profit groups.

“We see our role as being strategic advisors to our Boston market clients,” said Hall. “It’s about putting our clients at the center of everything we do and bringing them the right combination of solutions and expertise to help them achieve their business goals. We look forward to growing our Boston services and capabilities, and will soon add a small business banker and wealth liaison to round out our team.”

Hall has served on both for-profit and not-for-profit boards in New England, including a 14-year stint as director at MassMedic in Boston. He is currently a trustee of the Carroll Center for the Blind and serves on the finance committees of Swim Across America and Brae Burn Country Club. Hall received his bachelor’s degree from Colgate University and his master’s in finance from Columbia Business School. He and his family reside in Medfield, MA.

Partnering with Hall is Ethan Powell, who joined KeyBank at the end of 2016. Powell spent the first 11 years of his career at BBH in New York, starting in the corporate banking group before joining its commodity finance group. Most recently, he worked in the structured trade and commodity finance group at DZ Bank, the third-largest bank in Germany, where he was responsible for growing the bank’s commodities portfolio in North and Central America.

His background spans a number of additional industries including aerospace, automotive, food manufacturing, general manufacturing, logistics, media, and specialty staffing. He has previously served on the advisory board of the Peanut and Tree Nut Processors Association and is a past committee member of the International Energy Credit Association. He received his bachelor’s degree in economics and government from Connecticut College. He and his family reside in Lexington, MA.

Completing the team is Matthew Quinn, who also joined KeyBank in late 2016 from BBH in Boston, where he worked within the corporate advisory and banking group. Quinn’s primary focus and responsibility was with middle market clients in the healthcare and food & beverage industries, as well as privately-held manufacturers. Before corporate banking, he worked in the firm’s investor services business as a team leader within the private equity fund accounting team. Quinn holds master’s degrees in finance and business administration from Northeastern University. He and his family reside in Charlestown, MA.
