HARTFORD — Gov. Ned Lamont met Tuesday with the chief executive officer of M&T Bank, which is facing significant scrutiny from elected officials for customer-account issues and employee layoffs related to its acquisition of People’s United Bank.
The meeting marked the latest exchange in an ongoing dialogue between executives at Buffalo, N.Y.-headquartered M&T and public officials in Connecticut — communication that has focused in recent weeks on the problems that many customers have experienced in accessing accounts and paying bills since People’s United accounts were converted to M&T accounts at the beginning of last month. The hundreds of job cuts resulting from M&T’s $8.3 billion acquisition of Bridgeport-based People’s have also drawn attention.
