For more than 175 years, Berkshire Bank has been recognized for its entrepreneurial approach, distinctive culture and commitment to the communities it serves. Over the years, our footprint has expanded from our roots in Pittsfield, Massachusetts to encompass locations in New York, Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and now, with the addition of Savings Institute Bank & Trust, Rhode Island. What hasn’t changed
is our drive to help our customers accomplish their financial dreams and make a positive impact on the communities in which we live and operate.
This level of commitment is shared with Savings Institute, which brings a rich 176-year-old history of the same values as Berkshire Bank. Our joining with Savings Institute will help us to better serve both banks’ customers and the community at large.
We’re excited about the opportunity to introduce you to Berkshire Bank. We’re a dynamic bank with the experts and resources you need to accomplish your financial goals. Berkshire Bank realizes that no two customers are alike, and each person has their own unique goals. That’s why we offer a broad array of services that go beyond just consumer and business deposit and lending solutions, including insurance, wealth management and private banking services. We take it one step further by providing every customer, regardless of their wealth and background, with the VIP treatment through our one-of-a-kind MyBanker program.
Beyond providing our customers with the financial tools they need to be successful, we want to ensure the communities we live in thrive along with you. That’s why we invest more than $4 million back into the community each year through grants and sponsorships. Not only that, our employee volunteer program, the XTEAM®, contributes more than 40,000 hours to causes near to us. This unique program has recently been honored with the North American Employee Engagement Award, which acknowledged the bank’s mission to create meaningful and authentic connections with the communities it serves while fostering a workplace culture where all employees feel that they belong.
As we look to the future together, we pledge to always put your goals and the needs of the community first.
