There are so many good days at Kennebunk Savings. The people here are simply fantastic to work with and there is always a tremendous amount of interesting work going on. When I have the opportunity to collaborate, work through a challenging situation or just sit and laugh with the people here, for me that makes a great day.

What do you like best about the culture at Kennebunk Savings? Which one of our brand values (Integrity, Empathy, Proactive, Trust) resonates most strongly for you?

First things first – the culture at Kennebunk Savings is very special. I have had the opportunity to work in a lot of different environments over the course of my career and I can say without hesitation that the culture here is rarefied air. The people here are genuine and have a guttural sense of wanting to help each other and our community. It is an amazing feeling to be part of team when you know that everyone around you is willing to support you and will also roll up their sleeves to help you in any way they can. To a tee, you see this at every level of this organization. For me, empathy is the value that resonates most with me day today. Practicing it has helped me be a better person.
