Daniel Walsh

NORWAY — Daniel Walsh became chief executive officer of Norway Savings Bank on Jan. 1.

Walsh was named the 17th president of Norway Savings in September 2020 when Patricia Weigel announced she would retire Dec. 31, 2021. Weigel retained her position as CEO until her retirement. She will continue to serve as chairwoman of the bank’s board of directors.

A veteran banker with more than 35 years in the industry, including 24 at Norway Savings, Walsh is well known in the community and has been involved in many bank mentoring programs, leadership groups and committees. Before accepting the position of president, Walsh led Norway Savings Bank’s commercial team.

In conjunction with the leadership transition, the bank launched the “Patricia Weigel Pay It Forward Award” to honor Weigel’s leadership, dedication to community and distinguished career in banking. Each year, a $10,000 donation will be awarded to a nonprofit voted for by the bank’s employees. Eligible nonprofits are organizations where Norway Savings Bank employees volunteered during the preceding year.

This year’s recipient was Maine Children’s Cancer Program, the pediatric oncology program of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland, where Market Manager Kyle Hodgkins serves on the board.
