Christopher (“Chris”) Dickinson has joined Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) as Vice President, Business Development and Small Business Lending. Dickinson, who is based in Meredith, offers a full range of banking solutions to local business owners, municipalities and nonprofits.
He has stepped in for Marcus Weeks, who was selected to succeed Christine Harris-Fletcher, upon her retirement, effective January 5, 2018, as Senior Vice President, Senior Retail Banking Officer.
“I look forward to seeing how small business lending will expand and evolve under Chris’ leadership,” said Weeks. “Chris brings drive and enthusiasm to the team. With more than 25 years of experience, he draws from his diverse experience to provide the products and services that best meet the needs of each customer. I’m honored to welcome him aboard.”
