In October 2019, I was honored to announce the election of Deborah A. Carson, CPA as Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Debbie has been an essential member of our Board for 25 years. Her dedication, experience, and knowledge of our industry make her the ideal person to lead our Board. She is wonderfully adept at building partnerships and guiding decision-making. She is profoundly dedicated to this community and is excellent at engaging others as well. We are extremely fortunate to have her in this new role.
A Winchester native and 4th-generation Winchester resident, Ms. Carson has degrees from Dartmouth and Northeastern. She has served on the Board’s Audit Committee for 18 years and on the Board of Investment for five years.
Another major milestone reached last year was the successful completion of our core system upgrade to COCC, a technology provider created by a collaborative of financial institutions. Their size, organizational structure, and proximity to Massachusetts made them the clear choice, and the Bank is excited about the opportunities ahead.
As always, we are proud to be a local bank with a strong financial foundation, a tradition of exceptional service and a legacy of community involvement and support. For almost 150 years, Winchester Savings Bank has been an excellent place to keep your money safe; to speak with friendly, knowledgeable experts about financing a home, saving for the future, and guiding your business; and to access services that offer both value and convenience. You will always find someone here who will work with you to explore your options and help you make smart financial choices.
All of us here at Winchester Savings Bank wish you a healthy and prosperous 2020.
Peter J. Segerstrom
President and CEO
