Hanover, Massachusetts. May 22, 2023 – Rockland Trust Company has announced the appointment of Patricia Natale as General Counsel of the Bank and its parent holding company Independent Bank Corp (INDB). Natale has been elevated to the organization’s executive leadership team and now reports to Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Tengel.
Natale joined Rockland Trust in 2016, and prior to her appointment as General Counsel served as Deputy General Counsel. As General Counsel, she succeeds Edward Seksay who will be retiring from the organization on June 30th, 2023 after strategically and prudently leading the Company’s legal activities for over two decades.

We look forward to her steady stewardship as the newest member of our executive leadership team,” said Tengel. “This smooth transition is yet another example of both our commitment to promoting the exceptional talent that exists across our organization and our strong succession planning process.”
Prior to joining Rockland Trust, Natale served as a senior member of the legal teams at two different public companies. She began her legal career at Bingham, Dana & Gould LLP, now Morgan Lewis, in the corporate and transactional group. Natale received her B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from the University of Massachusetts/Boston and her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
