Webster Private Bank is gearing up for growth.

The bank has snagged Peter Gabriel from Wells Fargo’s private bank to serve as senior vice president and Director of Relationship Management. Gabriel will manage client acquisition and relationship development activities across Webster’s four-state footprint in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. He had been one of Wells Fargo’s top producers, according to a press release from Webster Bank.

Gabriel will lead Webster’s team of private bankers in Hartford, West Hartford, Greenwich, and New Haven, Conn.; White Plains, N.Y.; and Providence, R.I.  He will be based in Stamford, Conn., and will report to Dan FitzPatrick, executive vice president and head of Webster Private Bank, which launched in March of 2012.

While at Wells Fargo, Gabriel served as the business bank channel coordinator, was a member of the Connecticut leadership team, and managed a wealth advisor associate program. Prior to Wells Fargo, he served as a private bank business development officer for Bank of Boston in Stamford, Conn., and as a stockbroker for D. Blech & Co. in Boston.

“We are very excited to welcome Peter to our expanding team of deeply experienced private banking professionals,” FitzPatrick said in a statement. “His skill set and personal leadership will be critical to our success in driving Webster Private Bank to be a significant growth business for Webster Bank.”
