In making the announcement Steven Richardson, Chairman of the Board said, "Hal will become a Maine Superior Court Justice effective April 14, which prohibits him from serving on the Board. We certainly wish Hal the very best in his new position and are confident he will do a great job. Hal joined the Board in 2004 and was appointed Vice Chair in 2013. During his tenure he has been an integral part of our Board and the Bank and we will greatly miss the valuable guidance and insight he has provided over the years, as well as his passion and commitment for community banking."

In commenting on his time on the Board Stewart said, "It has been a tremendous experience, I quickly learned the banking industry was an evolving complicated world. Yet despite constant change, the culture of Katahdin Trust Company remained consistent and true, to serve the needs of their customers. There is no question that Katahdin Trust Company is truly 'community banking at its best'. I have greatly enjoyed the interaction and collaboration with the Board and senior management as we explored future opportunities, expanded into new markets and developed new products and services to meet the needs of our customers. I will certainly miss that."
