15 Camden National Bank Employees Receive Annual Recognition Awards

Camden, Maine, September 20, 2018 – On Monday, September 17th, Camden National Bank held its annual Employee Appreciation Event at the Augusta Civic Center. Over 500 employees traveled from as far north as Calais, Maine and as far south as Braintree, Massachusetts to attend. During the event, all employees were thanked and celebrated, and 15 outstanding employees received awards for their impressive commitment to Camden National Bank, customers, employees, shareholders and the community.
 
“Through a company-wide nomination process, we received countless stories of dedication and excellence,” said Greg Dufour, President & CEO. “I’m incredibly proud of everyone’s hard work and collective accomplishments, and I’m honored to recognize our 2018 award winners who have proven themselves to be inspiring leaders and change-makers at Camden National Bank.”
 
Camden National Bank’s 2018 Employee Appreciation Event had a “Trailblazers” theme to recognize innovation and success across the company. In October, the Bank will open its newest state-of-the-art banking center in Waterville as part of that community’s revitalization. It has also invested in numerous digital products such as MortgageTouch® for faster home financing, TreasuryLink™ for better business cash management, and Pay Up for sending money to friends and family. Camden National Bank has also developed new and different ways to serve customers with 24/7 customer assistance and live chat in online and mobile banking.
 
“Since Camden National Bank first started with a $10,000 deposit in 1875, we’ve been proud to be leaders in community banking,” continued Dufour. “Today, we call our innovative spirit the CamdenCircle, which is our company-wide ethos of harnessing feedback from customers and employees to drive better banking, smarter business and the best service possible, whether it’s in person or online.”
