The Connecticut Bankers Association and Connecticut Banking magazine have announced that Amy Raymond, Salisbury Bank’s Vice President Retail Lending, has been named as one of Connecticut’s New Leaders in Banking. Created to recognize the upcoming stars of the Connecticut banking industry, the competition attracted numerous nominations for its first year. The final selection process was done by a panel of independent judges from outside the banking industry. To qualify, nominees must be 50 years of age or less, work in a Connecticut bank, and be an outstanding employee, manager, or business leader who makes a notable impact on their institution or within the industry.
Richard J. Cantele, Jr., President and CEO of Salisbury Bank said, “We are incredibly proud of Amy and her accomplishments. She works tirelessly both in her job and behind the scenes to help enrich the lives of her customers and the community. If Amy and her fellow recipients are the future of banking in Connecticut, I know our industry will be in good hands.”
“I feel incredibly lucky to be recognized for doing what I love to do, in a workplace that fosters growth and independence,” Amy Raymond commented. “Over the last ten years, I have had the pleasure and satisfaction of creating a strong, goal-oriented department with dedicated employees and a fantastic support staff. The 99% satisfaction rating our mortgage customers give us shows me we’re doing something right!”
Ms. Raymond, who also serves as the Bank’s Community Reinvestment Act Officer, resides in Copake, New York with her husband Erik and her two children, Paige and Emma.
