KeyCorp Announces Successor to Retiring Director of Investor Relations

KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY), one of the largest bank-based financial services companies in the United States, announced a significant leadership change on January 10, 2024. Vernon Patterson, the company’s seasoned Director of Investor Relations, plans to retire in the spring, following a career spanning 30 years at KeyCorp.

As a key shareholder advocate and financial storyteller, Patterson has transformed the way KeyCorp communicates with shareholders, clients, and teammates. His leadership has steered the company through both prosperous and turbulent financial times, building resilient relationships with investors and equity analysts.

Patterson’s successor, Brian Mauney, will take over on March 1, 2024. Mauney comes to KeyCorp with a diverse background in financial services, encompassing over 25 years of industry experience. He previously served as the Deputy Director of Investor Relations at BNY Mellon, where he was responsible for their Fixed Income Investor Relations program.

Before BNY Mellon, Mauney held several senior roles at Citigroup, including responsibilities across CCAR / stress testing, corporate strategy, and as a sell-side equity analyst covering U.S. banks. Clark Khayat, KeyCorp’s Chief Financial Officer, will oversee Mauney’s transition into the organization.
