Bar Harbor Bank & Trust announces the recipients of the 2013 Agnes Salisbury “Customer Service” Award

Bar Harbor, Maine – Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is pleased to announce that Colleen Maynard and Michelle Curtis are the recipients of the 2013 Agnes Salisbury “Customer Service” Award, the Bank’s highest employee honor.

This award, established in 1989 in memory of long time employee, Agnes H. Salisbury, recognizes beyond best service in a number of areas: customer service, teamwork, positive attitude, community service, or assuming extra responsibilities above and beyond the call of duty.  Each year, an employee committee selects two award winners from nominations received from Bank employees. 

Colleen Maynard, AVP/Branch Relationship Manager (Southwest Harbor) is recognized for her exceptional customer service, using her extensive banking experience to help customers and also taking the time to get to know them on a personal level and understand their specific financial needs.  Customers love Colleen because of her warm and friendly personality, and they know they can trust her.  She displays patience and compassion when helping others, delivering devoted customer service from the heart. Colleen always has a positive “can do” attitude, encourages her staff, and leads by example.  She would not ask anything of a team member that she is not willing to do herself. Not a week goes by that Colleen isn’t using her personal time to help others in her community through her involvement with MDI Lioness, creating the Women’s Business Group, and volunteering for various local fundraising events.

Michelle Curtis, AVP/Branch Relationship Manager (Topsham & South China) is recognized for her professionalism, unfailing friendly attitude, and devotion to exceed the expectations of customers at every opportunity.  She will not rest until she solves a problem or addresses a concern to the customer’s satisfaction.  Michelle is upbeat and selfless, always putting the needs of customers and team members ahead of her own.  At the branch, Michelle is a great team leader, building confidence within her team and instilling a “can do” attitude.  A trusted leader in both the bank and the community, Michelle serves on several committees with the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber, is a member of Brunswick Rotary and Midcoast Young Professionals, is on the board of the local American Red Cross chapter, and volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Please join Bar Harbor Bank & Trust in congratulating these outstanding employees.
