Needham Bank Opens First Boston Branch in Mission Hill during Pandemic

6/23/2020

Needham Bank announced today that its Mission Hill branch location is now open for business. This branch, located on 1457 Tremont Street, marks the Bank’s first location in the City of Boston.

Joe Campanelli, Needham Bank’s President and CEO stated, “When the pandemic first started, bringing one of the most challenging economic crises I’ve ever witnessed, we never rethought our choice to open in Mission Hill.” He added, “We thought, who opens a bank branch at a time like this? We do. Because we know how important a strong local financial partner will be to help community members and local businesses get back on their feet.”

Headquartered in Needham, the Bank has an over 128 year history of being a strong community partner and has experienced record growth in recent years. The Mission Hill location is one of five new Needham Bank branches opened during the past five years, bringing its total branch locations into the double digits.

“We’d searched for a couple years to find the perfect location in Boston,” commented Senior Vice President, Carrie Vargas. “I’m thrilled with how the building came together, but even more excited about the team we have in place there, led by Maria Ramos, our branch manager. I have full confidence that they will provide the top-notch service and community support that we’re known for.”

Needham Bank’s Chief Marketing Officer, Karen Marryat, remarked on the choice to move to Mission Hill out of all the potential locations in Boston. She stated, “In looking at various communities, we immediately clicked with Mission Hill. This is a truly vibrant community with strong local businesses supported by Mission Hill Main Streets, thriving artists and musicians, and some terrific organizations supporting our new neighbors. As we’ve gotten to know the community better in the past few months, we are more and more impressed and excited by what’s to come in Mission Hill.”
