Kenneth Weinstein, President & CEO of Newtown Savings Bank
Ken Weinstein joined the LifeBridge board in 2003. He served as Board Chair from 2009-2011 and continues to serve on the Board of Directors today. Ken has deep roots in the Bridgeport community – his father and grandfather both grew up in the Park City and Ken worked in Bridgeport for many years. Ken’s parents set an example of community involvement, and Ken followed in those family footsteps. He was also influenced by his faith, attending weekly services at his synagogue in Bridgeport, where he learned the importance of making the world a better place. Ken feels fortunate to have had opportunities to learn and grow, and feels a responsibility to help those who do not have those same opportunities.
Ken has invested a great deal of himself in LifeBridge because of the long-term sustainable impact it makes on individuals, their families, and the overall community. He values the organization’s focus on creating brighter futures by partnering with people to make a positive difference in their lives. Ken’s vision is that “we are able to leverage abundant regional resources to partner with people to develop skills, enable satisfying lives, live the American dream, and raise their kids.”
Ken has served on non-profit boards focused on providing opportunities, including the United Way of Western Connecticut, the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce, Literacy Volunteers, and Berkeley College in addition to LifeBridge. He graduated from Dartmouth College and completed his MBA at Harvard Business School. Ken has worked in the banking industry most of his career and is currently the President and CEO of Newtown Savings Bank. He lives in Easton with his wife and two children.
