April 23, 2020
Salisbury Bank awards four deserving employees for the year 2019.
Earlier this year, Salisbury Bank employees selected Cindy Bradley as the 2019 “Employee of the Year” for her strong leadership and willingness to work side-by-side with her staff. Cindy’s wealth of knowledge and experience make her a valuable participant in discussions ranging over various subjects. She has a need to understand how processes work and seeks to identify opportunities for greater efficiency. Cindy is well-respected by department staff and colleagues. She truly cares about her co-workers and takes the time to ask about them and their families. Cindy joined the Bank in 2009 as Vice President, Loan Operations and was promoted to Senior Vice President, Loan Administration in May of 2012. She is a source of strength for the Bank’s Loan Administration team and we are fortunate to have her work with us.
Two employees were chosen for the 2019 “Rookie of the Year” award. This award recognizes an employee who has really stepped up during their first year. The first recipient, Kassidy Baker, was hired as a Customer Associate in the Deposit Operations Department in July of 2019, without any prior banking experience. Her desire and willingness to learn is energizing. She has a can-do attitude, takes responsibility in her role, and encourages communication within her department and throughout other areas of the Bank. She has been described as humble, enthusiastic and someone who likes to have fun. The second “Rookie of the Year”, Margaret Ham, joined Salisbury Bank in June of 2019 as a Customer Associate in our Great Barrington Office. Her colleagues have described her as a quick and eager learner who takes on new assignments with determination and focus. She has exceptional customer service skills, a positive attitude, and carries herself with integrity. Salisbury Bank is very happy to have Kassidy and Maggie on its team.
The “Volunteer of the Year” Award recognizes Amanda Goewey. She generously volunteered for five bank-sponsored events during 2019. The giving freely of one’s time is something that, as a community bank, we encourage and support. In addition to volunteering for the Bank, she coaches youth softball for Undermountain Elementary School, participates on the Community Health Program Children’s Attic Committee, and is a board member of the Eagle Fund and Undermountain Youth Athletic Association. Amanda has nearly 15 years of banking experience, having worked in various positions including Teller, Loan Coordinator, Mortgage Advisor, and Assistant Vice President, Branch Manager. In 2018, Amanda was promoted to Vice President, Berkshire Regional Branch Manager. Salisbury Bank is proud of Amanda and the volunteer work she does to help support our local communities.
The "President's Award" was presented to the entire team for their efforts during 2019. Notably improved performance resulted in record earnings for the bank. The commitment to excellence, the trustworthiness, and the high level of service that our employees provide is what sets us apart. It takes the entire team working together for the bank to succeed and prosper which is why the team was recognized for their collective contributions to the Bank’s ongoing success.
