Camden National Bank Expands Footprint in New Hampshire with New Loan Office in Portsmouth

Camden, Maine, March 12, 2018 – Camden National Bank continues to grow south with a newly opened loan office in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. With other loan offices in Manchester, NH and Braintree, MA, Camden National Bank now has three locations outside of Maine. The new loan office will serve as a hub for consumer and business loan production in Southern New Hampshire. 

“As we continue to see successful growth as a Maine-based company, we look to expand not only our products and services for existing areas, but also our footprint in new markets,” said Greg Dufour, President & CEO. “Building off of our successful Manchester, NH office, opening a lending office in Portsmouth is a critical next step in growing relationships in the area and cultivating new business.”

Camden National Bank strengthened its southern Maine business by acquiring The Bank of Maine in 2015 and opening its Manchester, NH loan office in 2014. The bank has also grown significantly to offer a comprehensive suite of products complemented by smart, friendly customer service and local decision-making. In addition to providing a range of competitive account options for both consumers and businesses, they also offer financial planning, wealth management and investment services.

In the last year, Camden National Bank has launched several new digital innovations including MortgageTouchTM, a streamlined online loan application platform for home-buyers, TreasuryLinkTM, a secure cash-management platform for business customers, and Pay Up, a quick and easy person-to-person payment system. The bank’s digital banking offerings are complemented by a strong focus on personal service, 24/7 customer support, live online chat and a newly branded customer experience program: CamdenCircle.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Seacoast community, and we look forward to deepening our connection to community organizations and local businesses,” Dufour said. “With banking solutions for businesses of all sizes, we bring state-of-the-art products and services to support business growth and economic prosperity in the region.”
