New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp (NHMB) has recently welcomed Elizabeth (“Beth”) Hazen as the newest Collections Officer for the organization’s sister companies Meredith Village Savings Bank, Merrimack County Savings Bank and Savings Bank of Walpole. She is based out of NHMB’s operations facility on Foundry Street in Concord.
“It has been wonderful to have Beth on our team,” said Kim Carter, Vice President, Loan Operations. “Her expertise, competence, leadership and mentorship experience serve as great assets for our organization. The pandemic created financial challenges for many of the households in our community. Adding Beth to the team has allowed us to address the associated concerns for our customers even more readily. We are really proud of helping our customers through these difficult times so that they can concentrate on their own recovery. Adding someone as talented and dedicated to customers as Beth has helped us expand that ability.”
“I really care about people and it has always been rewarding to help them in any way I can,” said Hazen. “With this in mind, I was immediately drawn to NHMB’s unique mutual model and have found synergy with all three of our banks. By remaining mutual, MVSB, the Merrimack and Savings Bank of Walpole are able to keep their decision making local to the towns and cities they each serve. It feels really good to be part of an organization that cares so deeply about our communities and the people within them.”
Prior to joining NHMB, Hazen spent more than 10 years in banking, focused in collections management.
Hazen is certified in Advanced Collections and Bankruptcy. Prior to re-locating to Southern NH last year, she actively volunteered for various food and clothing drives, homeless shelters and the local Humane Societies in VT and NH. She currently resides in Deering.
