Sean Moskal Appointed To Upstate Capital Board Of Directors



Highland, NY  – Sean Moskal, Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking at KeyBank, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the Upstate Capital Association of New York.

Sean is a corporate banker with international experience and a consistent track record of delivering growth through both deepening customer relationships and new client acquisition. What he likes most about his job is helping people. 

“I enjoy being part of the process to structure a transaction, whether that is putting together the senior debt proposal or introducing the right mezz or equity partner.”


Sean returned to the Buffalo/Niagara Region after spending twelve years in Chicago and Hong Kong while working with HSBC Bank. He joined the Upstate Capital board in the hopes of meeting people like him who “are working together to get deals done and to strengthen our collective networks.”

When reflecting on the market outlook for the next two to three years, Sean believes that “volatility creates opportunity.”  He explains, “there is still a lot of succession planning discussion taking place and the pandemic has reshaped the risk appetite for businesses and investors.  I think a lot of good ideas, businesses and opportunities will be developed – I hope that I meet a lot of the people behind these efforts through Upstate Capital.”
