Berkshire Bank Relocating its Commercial and Support Services

Offices Move to Glastonbury to Allow for Growth

HARTFORD, CT – Berkshire Bank will be relocating its Connecticut Commercial Banking Team and support services from State House Square in downtown Hartford to new offices in Glastonbury in May 2017. The commercial and support services group will be located on the second floor of the Berkshire location at 7 Sycamore Street at the intersection of Hebron Avenue in Glastonbury. The State House Square branch in Hartford will continue to provide retail banking services at this location.

Berkshire Bank's decision to relocate these services will allow for growth in Connecticut by consolidating all commercial functions under one roof which will also provide more efficient and effective client service. The relocation will benefit customers by providing access to services at one location for commercial lending, business banking, loan and credit operations, wealth management, private banking, and commercial insurance services.

"As the Bank continues to widen its footprint, this move is an additional way to highlight its growth within each facet of its business lines, stated Peter Samson, SVP, Commercial Region Leader in Connecticut. The Bank maintains its strong commitment to the Connecticut market and the relationships we continue to build with our clients and community. These new offices accommodate all commercial products and support services in one convenient central location to allow the commercial team the ability to collaborate and assist customers efficiently."
