Kingston, MA, United States, 2007/02/02 - Frietas will be based out of the Bank’s new office in Dartmouth, MA that features a host of nontraditional amenities and modern services complimenting the bank's longstanding reputation for stability, security and community commitment.
Bristol County Savings Bank has announced the appointment of Paula Freitas as Assistant Vice President/Regional Branch Administrator at their distinctive new state-of-the-art branch office located on Route 6 in Dartmouth, MA, minutes from New Bedford and Fall River. Bristol County Savings Bank, a $1.2 billion mutual savings bank founded in 1846 and headquartered in Taunton, MA, has 10 offices in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
With 25 years of experience in the banking industry, Freitas worked her way up the ladder, starting out as a teller at First Federal Savings Bank where she became a supervisor, and, ultimately, a branch manager. When Webster Bank acquired First Federal Savings Bank, Freitas was promoted to the position of Assistant Vice President at Webster.
“We’d like to welcome Paula to Bristol County Savings Bank, and look forward to having her head up our expert team of banking professionals at our new Dartmouth branch office,” notes Bristol County Savings CEO Dennis Kelly. “In addition to her extensive banking experience, Paula personally exemplifies our commitment to the South Coast community, as demonstrated by her leadership role as the Treasurer and Director of the New Bedford North End Business Association.”
Freitas is also a member of the New Bedford Chamber of Commerce. At Bristol County Savings Bank she will lead a staff of professionals who live and work in the South Coast area, offering customers a familiarity with the region that is underscored by their combined 120 years of banking experience. “I look forward to working with local residents and businesses, providing the best possible service for our customers.”
Freitas resides with her family in New Bedford, MA.
