“I’m very excited to join Bank of Canton and work with (Chief Credit Officer) Lori Webber and (President and CEO) Stephen Costello,” Lindberg said. “They’ve put together a great team, and I’m looking forward to contributing to the bank’s growth and success. I’ve known Steve since 1987 when we worked together at Shawmut Bank, and it’s great to be working with him again on commercial business.
