Magdalena Dye Joins Cattaraugus County Bank
Magdalena “Margie” Dye, a 21-year veteran of the Western New York banking industry, has joined Cattaraugus County Bank as assistant vice president – business development and lending officer.
In her new role, Dye will be responsible for residential loan origination as well as helping to expand relationships with individuals and businesses across Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties.
Dye is a familiar presence to banking customers across the Northern Chautauqua region. Most recently, Dye served as assistant vice president and branch manager of the Dunkirk office of Lakeshore Savings Bank where she supported the lending, business development, and management functions. Dye is also bilingual, which allows her to better support the Spanish-speaking community.
“Recruiting a community leader and banking industry veteran like Margie to join the CCB team allows us to elevate the level of service and support we deliver to the communities we serve,” said Stephanie Brown, chief operating officer. “Her knowledge of the banking, and especially, the lending needs of the Chautauqua region, will be beneficial as we continue to invest in and grow our presence in that region.”
“I am excited to take on this new role at CCB and even more excited to join a bank with such dedicated commitment to our community,” Dye said. “I love helping people achieve their dreams – be it individuals, families, or businesses – and, as such, look forward to introducing the benefits of banking with CCB and the products and services we offer. I love that CCB has been around since 1902. They have given so much back to the community in a very humble and quiet way. CCB is a hidden gem in our region.”
Dye was born and raised in Dunkirk. Her adoptive father was a navy veteran and was the lighthouse keeper of the Dunkirk Lighthouse and Veterans Museum. Dye is married to Charles Dye Jr. and they have two adult sons and three dogs.
Dye remains active with several local non-profit organizations, including: Boys & Girls Club of NCC; Chautauqua Youth Chorus; The Waterfront Foundation and the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation.
