Griffith will provide leadership for customers and communities in a region made up of Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, Erie and Wyoming counties, representatives said.
He also will serve as the primary business development leader for the five counties, bank officials said.
Griffith lives in Clarence, Erie County.
