Lynette Passini has been promoted to the position of Senior Vice President – Retail Lending Operations. Lynette joined the bank in 1971 and most recently served as 1st Vice President – Residential Lending Operations.

 "The combination of our highly successful Residential lending operation and our Consumer lending division, which is largely focused on home equity lending, will help us drive greater operational efficiencies and sales results. Don and Lyn's contributions to AnchorBank over the years have been tremendous, and their experience and skills make them the ideal choice to lead this combined group," said Bauer.
