On Tuesday, May 6th , 2019, Jim Domagola joined the management team at CCB (Cattaraugus County Bank) as Vice President and Business Relationship Manager.

Jim was on the Dean’s List of Honors at, and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from, the State University College at Buffalo, NY. Relevant continued education for Jim includes Advanced Commercial Lending and Credit Analysis courses at the University of Buffalo and EXLD Commercial Lending School in Rensselearville, NY.

Jim comes to CCB with over 31 years in banking! He was the recipient of Business First’s “40 Under Forty” award in 2000. Jim’s belief in service to community is strong and evidenced by his involvement in several non-profit and loan agency organizations, including some Board and Executive positions. Jim’s community service includes involvement in W.C.A. Foundation, Inc., Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency, Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, Southern Tier Enterprise Development Organization, Inc. (STEDO), Greater Jamestown Zone Capital Corporation, St. James Roman Catholic Church, Salvation Army, St. Susan’s Center and The United Way of Southern Chautauqua County.

“I recently took a break from banking after 30 years in the business”, states Jim. “I wasn’t sure about my next move until I had a few conversations with CCB management.  The decision to stay in banking by joining CCB was easy once I confirmed their plan to remain an independent community bank with true local authority to assist customers.  As a business lender, this is one of the more important aspects of what I do. CCB also serves the same communities I’ve lived in and worked all my life. I’m reconnecting with people I haven’t seen in many years. It’s fun.”

His inclusion on CCB’s team will facilitate independent, community bank growth of CCB in many of the areas it serves. Jim and his wife Maura make their home in Lakewood, NY.

“We’re really glad Jim’s part of the CCB Team now,” Mike Wimer, CCB President & CEO comments. “He very naturally develops the trust & confidence of clients and grows long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. He’s a Team player who, quite frankly, is a community banker at heart!”
