KeyBank, a Fortune 500 company with Regional Headquarters in Buffalo, announced Regional Sales Executive Gary Quenneville will retire June 1, after nearly 40 years in banking.
A distinguished banker with a long tenure in Western New York, Quenneville has been with KeyBank his entire career, having joined the company in 1985 as a management associate. He subsequently held numerous positions with increasing responsibility within the consumer, private bank and commercial banking groups.

Following that acquisition, he led growth of Key’s strong market position and community investment in Buffalo while maintaining his regional sales executive role. Quenneville also served as Buffalo market president from 2019-21.
A press release stated, “Active in civic life, Quenneville has been an integral part of the Western New York Community, serving on the boards of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, D’Youville College, Heritage Centers. Say Yes to Education, and the Buffalo Racial Equity Leadership Task Force.
“We are grateful for Gary’s nearly 40-year tenure at Key as well as his unwavering commitment to our clients, our colleagues, and the communities we serve,” KeyCorp Chairman and CEO Christopher Gorman said.
Key Commercial Bank President Angela Mago said, “While we will miss Gary’s leadership and dedication to our clients, communities, values and culture, we congratulate him and his family on his well-deserved retirement, and wish them the best as they move on to this next chapter of their lives.”
Following Quenneville’s retirement, Michael McMahon will continue in his leadership role as Buffalo market president and commercial sales leader.
