The board of trustees at Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank has promoted Paul Ryan of Vineyard Haven to the position of vice president and Sarah Mayhew Shipway of Chilmark to the position of senior trust officer.

Mr. Ryan relocated to the Island in 1988 when he became senior trust officer at Martha’s Vineyard National Bank, and joined Dukes County Savings Bank (now incorporated into the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank along with Martha’s Vineyard Co-operative Bank) in 1991 when that institution initiated its trust operations.

Ms. Shipway is a native Vineyarder who has been an integral part of the trust department of the bank since 1996. She specializes in wealth management, estate planning and retirement planning for Island families, individuals and estates.
