We surpassed $1 billion in customer deposit balances for the first time ever. This tremendous growth was the result of shifting strategic direction and following through at every level of the organization. I can’t be more proud of our employees who worked tirelessly to make this ambitious goal a reality.
We also grew our statewide presence with the opening of our new branch on Middle Street in Portland. Located in the heart of the commercial district, this renovated facility heralds Portland’s past while pointing to a vibrant future for Machias Savings in the heart of Maine’s largest community.
With growth came profits. We gained efficiencies across the bank and kept a watchful eye on expenses. At the end of the day, our employees and communities benefitted tremendously from our record setting profitability.
And we don’t just write checks. We get involved and join forces with our community partners to make a significant difference. That difference amounted to over $700,000 in contributions and over 10,000 hours of community service. We maintained our position as the number 2 large employer in the Best Places to Work in Maine program and we were named the Lender at Work for Maine by the Finance Authority of Maine for the 3rd year in a row.
Over a decade ago, we began an unprecedented investment in cash management talent and technology. Today, we have the deepest and most talented team in Maine, helping businesses across the state best manage their cash efficiently and effectively, and build greater value in their companies and our communities.
As technology makes banking less personal, we’re focusing on how we can add value to both businesses and individuals, harnessing the power of technology while maintaining the culture of old fashioned relationship banking that’s been appreciated by our partners in ME for nearly 150 years.
We’re humbled and energized that our customers across Maine have put their trust in MSB. We are proud to be Machias Savings Bank, exceptional partners, beyond banking.
