BayCoast Bank (baycoast.bank) is excited to announce a prestigious national honor for its top legal advisor. Casey Brouthers, Esq., Vice President, Associate General Counsel for the Bank, has received the 2023 Emerging Leader Award from the American Bankers Association (ABA).
Brouthers was one of twelve banking professionals nationwide to receive the award, which was presented during the ABA’s Annual Convention held October 8-10 in Nashville, Tennessee. The ABA Emerging Leader Award recognizes the next generation of bank leaders who are committed to the highest standards of achievement and service to their industry as well as their local communities.
This is the second time this year that Brouthers has received a distinguished leadership award. She was previously named an Emerging Leader by the Massachusetts Bankers Association in May 2023.
A graduate of Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts with a bachelor’s degree in criminology, Brouthers began her career at BayCoast Bank in 2020 as Vice President, Regulatory Policy and Enterprise Risk Strategist, becoming Vice President, Associate General Counsel just over a year later.
In 2010, she started her career in community banking, gaining experience in a number of roles, including teller, customer service representative, and loan processor. Her immediate success in the banking industry led Brouthers to explore exciting new opportunities while expanding her education, graduating from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Law School in 2019.
She is licensed to practice law in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
An active participant in numerous local organizations, Brouthers is a member of the Fall River Mayor’s Task Force to End Homelessness and the Massachusetts Governor’s Advisory Committee (GAC) for Lead Poisoning Prevention. She is also a volunteer for Credit for Life, a financial literacy program offered by BayCoast Bank, which helps high school students gain real-world critical money management skills for the real world.
“Casey’s dedication to her profession, leadership skills, and personal integrity are constantly demonstrated, making her more than worthy of this prestigious award from the American Bankers Association,” said Nicholas M. Christ, President and CEO of BayCoast Bank, a long-time community savings bank serving the people and businesses on the South Coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. “Our entire BayCoast family extends its heartfelt congratulations.”
A Taunton, Massachusetts native, Brouthers currently lives in North Dighton, MA, with her husband, Kyle, one-year-old son, Levi, and their dog, Benji. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and advocating for her community.
