North Brookfield Savings Bank is proud to announce that Kelly Connelly, First Vice President/Director of Mortgage Lending at North Brookfield Savings Bank, has been chosen by National Mortgage Professional for their “40 Under Forty”- Class of 2022. A panel of judges reviewed several nominations and concluded that Kelly’s credentials, accomplishments, and contributions to the Banking Industry make her a distinctive leader.


“I am humbled and honored to have been nominated and included amongst such an incredible group of inspirational leaders in our industry,” said Kelly Connelly. “I am beyond grateful to my teams and mentors, both past and present, who have continuously placed their faith in me and provided opportunities for me to evolve and grow throughout my career.”


Kelly started her Banking career in 2009 and as she expanded her experience from retail to lending, she quickly found herself in leadership roles. She was most recently at Hingham Institution for Savings for 7.5 years where she started out as the Collections Officer for the first 3 years of her time there which included managing OREO, foreclosures, and portfolio risk. After successfully streamlining these functions of lending with Hingham Institution for Savings, Kelly took over the oversight of Loan Operations and Residential Lending where she streamlined a high level of manual tasks within the departments using outsourced technology and internal low code automation.


Kelly constantly goes above and beyond to seek inefficiencies and develop solutions with a continuous improvement attitude. She is always looking for the best way to serve the Bank, the customer, and the community. Kelly has received a variety of training in several fields that give her a unique position on many processes. Kelly currently holds the following degrees and certificates: Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School, BSBS from New England College of Business in Banking & Finance, 2021 Certification for Massachusetts Bankers Association School of Commercial Lending and 2021 Certification for Massachusetts Bankers Association Compliance Academy. Kelly embodies our core values here at NBSB through her commitment to our communities, operational excellence, team building with kindness, integrity, and teamwork through the well-rounded work she produces.     


Congratulations to not only our very own, Kelly Connelly, but the entire 2022 class of NMP’S 40 under 40 for their unwavering efforts, steadfast attitude, and unmatched experience.
