Country Bank Welcomes Angela Barahona
WARE — Country Bank announced that Angela Barahona has joined its Commercial Banking division as vice president of Business Development and Cash Management.
She brings 17 years of experience in the industry, having held various positions over the years in customer service, management, municipal and government banking, business development, and corporate cash management. She is currently working toward her associate degree from the New England College of Business and Finance with a concentration in business adminstration.
Barahona began her financial-services career at Country Bank in 2001 in its retail banking area.

“I am a committed and self-motivated individual who takes pride in hard work and putting the customer’s experience first,” she said. “From retail branches to high-level corporate portfolio management, my goal has always been to build strong solid relationships and find the right product or service to meet or exceed my customers’ expectations.”
Added Phil Goncalves, senior vice president of Commercial Banking, “coming back to her roots at Country Bank provides our team with an experienced and highly trained business-development and cash-management professional. Angela’s passion is to her customers and in building long-lasting relationships, which she has done for the past 17 years at various financial institutions.
