First Niagara Financial Group Inc. has removed the interim tag from Brian Dempsey’s title to make him the permanent senior vice president and corporate controller, officials announced Wednesday.
Dempsey was named interim controller in July after James Ciroli resigned. Ciroli is now chief financial officer at Flagstar Bancorp Inc. in Michigan.
Dempsey was the Buffalo bank’s director of finance accounting before replacing Ciroli. He joined First Niagara in 2009 as corporate reporting manager after 10 years with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.
