Veteran Connecticut banker Chandler J. Howard, chief of Middletown community lender Liberty Bank, has taken a seat on the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Liberty says.

Howard, Liberty's president and CEO for the past decade, was seated Jan. 1, the bank said Thursday. He serves as a Class A director, representing member banks in the Federal Reserve's first district.

Liberty says it's Connecticut's oldest savings bank and its fourth largest, with assets of $4.8 billion. It employs 700 and serves more than 200,000 consumers and businesses at 55 office and branch locations.

Prior to Liberty, Howard held various roles in more than 35 years in banking, from teller to executive for People's United Bank, Bank of America, and B of A's New England predecessor, Fleet Bank, among others.

He has an undergraduate degree from UConn and a master's in finance from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an honorary doctorate from Charter Oak State College.

Howards also sits on the Connecticut boards of Middlesex Hospital; the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce; Connecticut Bankers Association; Connecticut Business Industry Association; Greater Hartford Community Foundation, and the Goodspeed Opera House.
