Paul McCaughey, vice president and chief technology officer at Waukesha State Bank, retired today. McCaughey’s career with the bank spanned four decades, and included work that helped make Waukesha State Bank a leader in implementing innovative technology services in its banking operations and customer products.
"Paul directed and developed the Bank’s technology from its infancy in 1968, keeping the bank in the forefront of modern service to our customers," said Ty R. Taylor, president and CEO.
McCaughey’s work in the data center included computer operating and programming, and was appointed vice president and manager of the bank’s Data Processing Department in 1986. In 2006, he was promoted to vice president and chief technology officer.
Waukesha State Bank operates 12 full-service and seven limited service offices in Brookfield, Delafield, Mukwonago, Muskego, Oconomowoc, Pewaukee, Sussex and Waukesha. It plans to open its 13th full-service branch later this year in Waukesha at East Racine Avenue and Highway 164.
