A Message from our President and CEO
Welcome to bankESB, a part of the Hometown Financial Group banking family. Since 1869, we have been focused on providing the financial products our customers need and the highest possible levels of customer service. As a mutual bank we can remain true to our roots, our customers, and the communities we serve – not to stockholders.
We continually look for ways to provide our customers with cutting-edge products and advanced technology, while providing the highest levels of security. Feel free to explore additional tools and resources at our Online Security Center. For our commercial and business clients, we offer a full complement of deposit, cash management, and lending products. As one of the area’s top commercial lenders, our team will work hard for you and your business to help your company move to the next level.
What we are most proud of though, is our commitment to our communities. For nearly 150 years, bankESB has been a community partner supporting local non-profit organizations and the people they serve. We were honored when The Boston Business Journal recently named bankESB the #1 bank in the state as its “Top Corporate Charitable Volunteer” based on employee volunteer hours. In addition, the publication named bankESB one of the region’s “Top Corporate Charitable Contributors” overall. The bank was also voted as the number one place to get a loan by readers of The Daily Hampshire Gazette.
We believe that the best approach to a people business is always doing the right thing … investing in what matters…and for us that’s our customers, employees, and communities. As the bank grows and ventures into new communities, the tradition and spirit of community banking is always with us, it’s who we are.
If you are currently a bankESB customer, thank you for allowing us to serve you. If you are not yet a customer, I invite you to come see how it feels to bank your way at the bank of you, and experience an unmatched level of banking service and convenience.
Matthew S. Sosik,
President & CEO
