April 22, 2020

Rochester Business Journal has selected Michelle Pedzich, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Canandaigua National Bank & Trust (CNB), as a 2020 Women of Excellence honoree.

Established in 2018, the Women of Excellence awards recognize high-achieving women for their professional experience, community involvement, leadership and sustained commitment to mentoring. Winners were selected by a panel of judges comprised of previous Circle of Excellence and Women of Excellence honorees. 

"Through their professional accomplishments, community involvement, leadership and sustained commitment to mentoring, the 2020 Women of Excellence honorees are high-achieving women who are committed to making the greater Rochester area the best place to live and work," said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, group publisher of the Rochester Business Journal. "We at the Rochester Business Journal applaud the honorees for what they have done and will continue to do for our community."

Pedzich has been with CNB since 2012. As Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, she has worked to ensure that the company culture at CNB remains healthy and reflects the values of the Canandaigua National Corporation. On top of her strong influence at work, she serves the community in multiple capacities. Pedzich is a valuable asset to the Canandaigua City School District Board of Education, the Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Leadership Ontario Steering Committee, and more. “Michelle is a leader, motivator, and mentor at CNB,” remarked Frank H. Hamlin III, CEO and President of CNB. “We are fortunate to have Michelle as a Canandaigua National Bank & Trust employee and colleague.”
