Donna L. Boulanger
President & Chief
Executive Officer

To Our Valued Customers and Community Members,

The theme “Strong Roots, New Branches” truly summarizes 2014 for North Brookfield Savings Bank. This year, we celebrated our 160th anniversary, adding three new branches through our merger with FamilyFirst Bank. Now, with a total of seven full-service branch locations, we are more convenient than ever. We’ve never forgotten that the Bank was founded to meet the needs of the community, helping individuals, families, and businesses achieve a safe and secure financial future.

The continued success of NBSB is a direct result of our commitment to those values and to our employees’ dedication to our customers. We welcomed former FamilyFirst Bank employees and customers in June 2014 and to date, feedback has been very positive. We are also renovating our Ware branch into an exciting new Retail Banking Center for the general public as well as a Business Banking Center with experienced business lenders to meet the needs of our commercial customers.

We are very proud of the fact that the Bank experienced solid core growth in 2014, once again receiving a 5-Star Superior Rating from Bauer Financial in recognition of our strong capital levels.

During 2014, we introduced a new online banking and bill payment system, giving customers unprecedented convenience and access to their accounts. This follows the upgrade of our website in 2013, which was also well received. We continue to expand our Residential, Consumer, and Commercial Lending Departments to meet the increasing need for personalized service and local decision making.

Our employees remain very involved in our communities, donating hours of time and supporting the Bank in its charitable giving. I’m very proud of our employees’ hard work and commitment to the Bank and the community. In 2014, the Bank continued its history of charitable giving, assisting the new communities that were gained by the FamilyFirst Bank merger, as well.

None of this would have been possible without all of our loyal customers. By banking with us, you have a strong and direct impact on your local community. In fact, I would like to thank all of our customers, employees, and the Board of Trustees for supporting our goals as a community bank. We remember our roots and that’s why this year’s theme is STRONG ROOTS, NEW BRANCHES.

Sincerely,
Donna L. Boulanger
President & Chief Executive Officer
