Q: Tell us about your business?
A: Since our inception in 1869, MVSB (Meredith Village Savings Bank) has provided a safe, convenient place to save money and help people achieve their financial and personal goals. Over the past 150 years, during periods of economic prosperity as well as through turbulent times in United States history, the bank has remained resilient and steadfast when it comes serving our customers and the community. We have grown in size and expanded our range of financial products and services to meet the changing needs of customers and the communities we serve. What began as a one-room operation in downtown Meredith, NH has become a thriving mutual savings bank with 13 offices in 10 New Hampshire communities throughout the Lakes Region, Plymouth and Seacoast areas. Despite our continued readiness to grow and change with the times, we have always remained true to our roots as a mutual bank, here to enhance the welfare, well-being and vitality of the community.
Q: Tell us about yourself:
A: I am a Commercial Loan Officer servicing Eastern NH. My office location is based out of Rochester and I frequent the Alton and Wolfeboro branches. I started with MVSB in March of 2022 after many years at a much larger bank. I grew up locally in Wolfeboro, graduating from Kingwood Regional High School and received my Bachelors from SNHU. Being a local guy, & navigating a changing workplace in recent years, I was missing the connection of work and community. I was drawn to MVSB for its core values that support local business and community development.
