Mohannad F. Jishi

Board Member

Mo Jishi is the head of business line finance for M&T Bank and Wilmington Trust. He is an active member of the bank’s leadership team, serving as a chair or member of several subsidiary boards and corporate steering committees. Mo joined M&T Bank in September 1995, and spent his first eight years with the bank in the finance division. In August 2003, he moved to Baltimore to lead the bank’s commercial equipment finance business. He later led the treasury management, merchant services and commercial card sales teams, the commercial deposit and treasury management businesses and the bank’s commercial banking activities in greater Baltimore. Immediately prior to assuming his current role, he served as business line chief financial officer for the Wealth and Institutional Services Division. Today, Mo leads a team of business-line chief financial officers who provide comprehensive financial and strategic planning, incentive plan administration and sales reporting for the organization’s core profit and support businesses. The team partners with business leadership to foster operational, financial and cultural integration, shape business direction and support profitable growth and ongoing performance improvement. This is facilitated, in part, through the transparent and well-controlled design and execution of incentive plans that align rewards with performance. In addition to serving on the finance, audit, compensation and philanthropy committees on the National Aquarium Board of Directors, he chairs the governance and board development committee on the Board and Executive Committee for the Y in Central Maryland, the St. Agnes Hospital Board and the Baltimore Curriculum Project Board. He is also actively engaged in the Pencil Program, where he partners with a principal from a Baltimore City school to assist in setting and measuring enrichment strategy for the school’s students and parents.
