grow and develop innovative ways to serve our customers.”

In his most recent role, Roszkowski was a senior executive vice president and

“Discover Bank has built an impressive reputation of exceptional customer
service and paved the way to a convenient online banking experience,” said

comprehensive suite of banking services that continue to meet the changing
needs of consumers.”

Roszkowski also has served as CEO of Patria Services, a technology-based
