Mary Ann Skewes Aguasvivas has always been ahead of the game. She was just 16 when she entered Le Moyne College (“Ever since I could remember, I have been the youngest in my class. When you’re used to that, it doesn’t feel like a big thing,” she says), finished by the time she was 20, and, just two months later joined M&T Bank’s Management Development Program, armed with a dual degree in marketing and business analytics.

She earned four promotions in less than four years to become assistant vice president. And a month after that, in 2019, also landed the New Rochelle branch-manager position — making her the youngest person in the region in that role.

“I love that I get to work for a financial institution that really cares about the well-being of those in the communities we serve,” says the Bronx resident, who moved from the Dominican Republic at 10 and is now earning her MBA at the University of Connecticut.

Aguasvivas is also on the board of directors at Hope’s Door, a Hawthorne nonprofit that assists victims of domestic violence, and is involved in the entrepreneurial Spanish program at the Women’s Enterprise Development Center in White Plains.

And she wants to keep doing her part: Looking ahead, she says she’ll, “continue to work with minoritized people in local communities. I am extremely passionate about the LatinX community.”
