The votes are in … and Salisbury Bank has gotten the nod from the people of Berkshire County.
The Berkshire Record recently completed a survey for the “Best of Berkshire County” in over 300 categories, ranging from elected officials to women’s shoes, and readers overwhelmingly voted Salisbury Bank the Best Bank in Berkshire County. Salisbury Bank, a Connecticut-based bank, with branches in Sheffield and South Egremont, Massachusetts, was voted #1 in the 2013 Readers’ Survey, which was conducted throughout the month of February.
To honor the winners, the Record published a keepsake magazine titled The Best of 2013, which featured over 300 winners from all aspects of Berkshire life. In explaining the winning characteristics of Salisbury Bank, editors noted that the Bank not only offers a wide array of personal and business banking services, trust and wealth advisory services, retirement planning, and mortgage services, but is also committed to new and innovative products and approaches as well as being active in local civic life.
In response to the ranking, Rick Cantele, President and CEO of Salisbury Bank, said, “Because we work so hard to enrich the lives of not just our customers but also the communities we serve, we are especially honored to be recognized in this way by the Berkshire Record’s readers. Between our annual scholarship program and frequent support of many non-profit organizations in the tri-state area, we have worked hard to earn a reputation as both a reliable banking institution and a good corporate citizen. Our team in Berkshire County works very hard to provide a high level of service and professionalism to our customers and it is extremely gratifying for me to see them earn an acknowledgement of that by the citizens of Berkshire County”
Georgann Farnum, Branch Manager for both the Sheffield and South Egremont branches added, “This extensive ‘Best of’ list illustrates the variety and richness of life in Berkshire County. We are thrilled to be voted Best Bank.”
