Keith Mestrich, former Director of Amalgamated Bank’s Washington office, has been named chief executive of the bank. He became President of Amalgamated in April. A 25-year veteran of the labor movement, Mestrich began his career as a researcher at the AFL-CIO where he gained experience assisting unions on hundreds of organizing, bargaining and political campaigns. He’s also worked at SEIU, UNITE and Worker’s United. Noel Beasley, the bank’s chairman and president of Workers United, described Mestrich as a “progressive warrior” with a passion for serving customers. Click here for The New York Times report.
