Anthony Caruso, Bank of Canton’s senior vice president of retail and branch administration, accepts the Banking Choice Award for Community Contribution at the 2019 Best Bank Expo in Springfield, Massachusetts.
CANTON, Mass. (July 1, 2019) – Bank of Canton was honored at the 2019 Banking Choice Awards in Springfield, Massachusetts, for achieving second place in the independent Banking Benchmarks® survey’s Community Contribution category for the Greater Boston region.
The Banking Choice Awards are based on the results of the Banking Benchmarks survey, conducted by independent research and consulting firm Customer Experience Solutions, LLC. Over 278,000 survey responses were gathered from Massachusetts participants, and 162 banking institutions across five Massachusetts state regions were ranked in the categories of Overall Quality, Customer Service, Technology, and Community Contribution.
“We’re honored to receive the silver Community Contribution award,” said Stephen P. Costello, president and CEO of Bank of Canton. “We take our responsibility as a mutual bank very seriously: to make a difference in the lives of those who live and work in our communities. Supporting the organizations and causes that improve the lives of others is a cornerstone of that commitment.”
The rankings include all institutions that survey respondents use for banking services, including community banks, regional banks, national banks, in-state banks, out-of-state banks, credit unions, online banks and non-banks.
“This recognition is a credit to our customers,” continued Costello. “Their decision to bank with us is what fuels our charitable giving program. We couldn’t provide the amount of community support that we do without their business.”
Since 2005, Bank of Canton has given more than $2.1 million to local charities and nonprofit organizations through donations and sponsorships. The bank’s contributions have helped fund financial literacy programs for children and seniors, educational workshops for first-time home buyers, and cultural and artistic enrichment programs. The bank’s employees hold leadership positions in several civic and non-profit organizations across the Greater Boston and South Shore areas as well.
