Vice President Patty Ostrout has been promoted to senior vice president of Retail Banking, Operations Manager Laurie Wisniewski has been promoted to vice president of Operations, Branch Administrator Tammy Martin has been promoted to assistant vice president/branch administrator, and Credit Analyst Courtney Fitzmaurice has been promoted to assistant vice president/commercial portfolio manager.
“We’re very proud of Patty, Laurie, Tammy, and Courtney for their well-deserved promotions, not only because of how much we value them, but also because of what it says about our continued growth as a mutual savings bank,” said Donna Boulanger, NBSB President and CEO. “We’re looking forward to the continued value they will bring to the growth and success of North Brookfield Savings Bank, our customers, and the expanding communities that we serve.”
With more than 25 years in the financial industry, Ostrout started with NBSB in 2012. Wisniewski started as a teller at NBSB in 1985 before holding positions in accounting and other aspects of the organization. Her promotion to vice president of Operations means she is coming full circle, as she’ll be working closely again with the branches and in the deposit areas of banking.

As commercial portfolio manager, she will work directly with small businesses through the expanding Business Center at NBSB, which offers a wide range of loan and deposit products for business customers. The Business Center was also recently named a preferred lender for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
Martin received her bachelor’s degree from Worcester State College (now Worcester State University) and has more than 10 years of experience in the banking industry. She has been at NBSB for nearly two years and said she is looking forward to continued community involvement.
