Construction is progressing nicely for Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB)’s newest office in Portsmouth, NH located at 2839 Lafayette Road on Route 1, across from the Beach Plum restaurant. The branch, which is expected to open in the coming weeks, will be the MVSB’s second location on the Seacoast and 13th branch overall. The Bank also has a mortgage, business and personal loan office on 95 Lafayette Road in Hampton Falls.
Staffing for the new office has been finalized. James (“Jim”) Carrigan recently joined as its new Branch and Business Development Manager. Julie Clement will also be based in Portsmouth as the Assistant Vice President Cash Management, Small Business Lending Officer. Samantha Cots was hired earlier in the spring to fulfill the Branch Services Supervisor role. Justin Small recently joined as Mortgage Loan Originator, and will be based out of this branch. Local businesses are already working with Dan Dolan, Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer, who can be reached at 603.657.5084 from the Business and Personal Loan office in Hampton Falls.
“We are nearing completion of the construction – and the beginning of a wonderful experience in Portsmouth. We are thrilled to expand our footprint in the Seacoast. The branch will be a state of the art facility that will serve customers and the community for many years to come,” said Rick Wyman, Bank President. “The community has been so welcoming at our office in Hampton Falls. We have exceeded expectations on the number of people and businesses who have already begun banking with us in anticipation of the opening of this newest branch office.”
