PeoplesBank Recognized in Reader’s Choice Survey

HOLYOKE — Thousands of voters chimed in recently for the Daily Hampshire Gazette’s Readers’ Choice consumer polls, and PeoplesBank was named a winner in several categories, including Best Local Bank, Best Local Online Banking, Best Mortgage/Home Loan Provider, Best Green Business, and Best Place to Work.

“PeoplesBank is proud to play a role in making this a better place to live and work,” said Matthew Bannister, senior vice president, Marketing and Corporate Responsibility. “We truly thank our customers for their votes.”

PeoplesBank has made significant investments in customer service in recent years, adding new digital and contactless banking opportunities such as VideoBankerITMs as well as expanding its banking-center network in Northern and Central Connecticut. In each market it serves, the bank is well-known for its charitable and civic support.

Meanwhile, at the other end of Massachusetts, the Boston Business Journal named PeoplesBank a Top Corporate Charitable Contributor again in 2021.

“I really think what we do for the community, how active we are in the community, what we do for the environment, the level of engagement with employees — it shines, and it shows what an amazing place it is here at PeoplesBank,” said Michael Gay, vice president, regional manager.
