STATEMENT BY DFS SUPERINTENDENT MARIA T. VULLO ON THE PASSING OF M&T BANK CORP. CHAIRMAN ROBERT WILMERS

I am very saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of Robert Wilmers, a true legend in New York's banking community. Bob built M&T Bank based on community banking, and was committed to communities across the state — from Buffalo to Brooklyn, and so many more.  The entire DFS team mourns his passing and stands ready to work with the bank on a smooth transition to ensure continued service to New York banking consumers.  My sincerest condolences to Bob’s family and friends on this profound loss..
