Before becoming president of the Greater Baltimore/Chesapeake Region of M&T Bank Augie Chiasera earned his bachelor’s degree from Boston University’s School of Management. Later on, he earned his Master of Business Administration in finance and statistics from The University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
Now, Chiasera oversees middle market and large corporate banking activity throughout Maryland and worked to maintain M&T Bank’s connection with the Baltimore Ravens.
He’s held many roles within the bank during his 30 years with the company, including director of bankwide transformation, president of Greater Baltimore and senior vice president of small business banking. His first role at the bank in 1993 was as executive assistant.
Recently, Chiasera worked to extend the bank’s contract with the Baltimore Ravens, securing the team’s home M&T Bank Stadium name through 2037.
According to a press release at the time, Chiasera said, “The partnership between M&T Bank and the Ravens has worked so well for so long because the organizations share similar values of integrity, determination, work ethic, teamwork and a common mission to make Baltimore better. That’s why it made sense from M&T’s perspective to extend our partnership with the Ravens through the 2037 season.”
As a graduate of the Greater Baltimore Committee’s LEADERship program, Chiasera has been involved with several community organization boards. He has served as board chair of the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore, Maryland Science Center, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Chesapeake, Center Stage, Baltimore Development Corporation, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and The American Heart Association.
In his spare time, Chiasera is a fan of books. His favorite authors include Robert Pirsig, David Foster Wallace, John Steinbeck and Brene Brown.
