Thomas A. Borner, President and CEO of Putnam Bank, commented that the award is given to an employee who exemplifies unwavering commitment and dedication to the bank and community.
Ms. Bond was selected this year to receive this honor. Borner said, “Maggie is the go to person for retail loan compliance. She is an individual who cares about everyone and always does what it takes to get the job done.” Maggie was also recognized for her 40 years of service and dedication to Putnam Bank.
She is very active in the community and serves as a board member for Northeast Placement Service (NEPS).
Maggie was happily surprised and thankful. When asked what this award meant to her, she stated, ”When I began my career with Putnam Bank, we were located in what is now the Shopper’s Guide building. We only had the Main Office and about 12 employees. I have seen so many changes since then with the growth of the Bank to 7 additional branches and the Loan Center, changes in staff, management, technology and regulations. One thing hasn’t changed is my pride in being part of an organization that exemplifies outstanding service to the community it serves. I thank the president and the Board of Directors for recognizing me for my service and commitment to the Bank.”
