Rochester Branch

MVSB is excited to announce that its newest branch office at 21 Farmington Road (Route 11) in Rochester is now open. This full-service location offers modern banking services and convenience for those local to the Rochester area as well as those that might travel to and from the Seacoast or Lakes regions.

“We broke ground on the branch in late October and construction progressed close to schedule even with recent delays in some supplies and equipment,” said Rick Wyman, MVSB President. “This is a truly beautiful new office and we couldn’t be more proud to present it to the community. We were also very proud to have built an exceptional team of knowledgeable and friendly bankers and lenders to serve the needs of the local communities.”

James “Jim” Carrigan, Regional Vice President, Branch & Business Development Manager, was promoted earlier this year to oversee MVSB’s Portsmouth and Rochester locations will support Jolene Whitehead, Branch & Business Development Manager, and her team as they manage day-to-day banking needs at the branch.

“Jolene calls Rochester home and her customer service and leadership skills, banking experience and community involvement made her the perfect choice to lead the Rochester team,” said Jim. “With all of our great staff in Rochester, this branch is well equipped to be of service to the community in a variety of ways.”

Julie Clement, who was recently promoted to Vice President, Business Development and Small Business Lender, will provide business services to the Rochester community. Traynor Cully, Commercial Loan Officer, will assist businesses with commercial lending needs. Nicole Ames was recently brought on board as the Mortgage Loan Officer (NMLS #2370119) and will assist customers throughout the home buying, construction or refinance process.

“We are excited to continue to grow relationships in the Rochester community and we encourage everyone to stop by anytime to view the branch and meet the team,” said Jolene. “The Lilac City has been so welcoming to us and we want to say ‘thank you’ to the employees, contractors and local groups that helped us get here.”
