Allow me to introduce myself: I’m Meg McIsaac, the President & CEO of Bluestone Bank. I would like to take a moment to personally thank you for being a valued customer and an important part of our community bank. I’d also like to extend a warm welcome to those of you whom I have yet to meet.
I began my career in banking over 30 years ago and spent time working for large commercial banks until fate brought me to a small community bank in need of lending and credit expertise. I connected immediately with the mission and purpose of community banks and shifted my career in that direction. Eventually, I accepted the position of President and CEO of Mansfield Bank, and after working diligently with the leadership of Bridgewater Savings Bank, our two community banks merged to form Bluestone Bank. Larger, but not a big bank, Bluestone has a far greater ability to positively impact the communities, businesses and citizens we serve.
Being a Community Bank isn’t just a mindset—it’s a set of actions that support the well-being of our customers and the communities we’re all part of. At Bluestone, we are firmly committed to our role as a local resource. Whether we’re sponsoring scholarships for promising students, rolling up our sleeves for local organizations, or investing in causes like affordable housing and education, we’re thinking of our neighborhoods and our neighbors - asking how we can help.
You’ll often see the phrase backed by Bluestone in our branches, on our marketing materials, and throughout our communications with the community. Backed by Bluestone means that we’ve got more than just your back, it means we also have your best interest at heart. To not only help you reach your financial goals, but to help you reach them supported by a bank family you can rely on - your true partner for every step of your financial journey.
When I’m not at the bank, I serve as a Board Director and Chair for the Massachusetts Bankers Association, and as a Board Trustee for the South Shore Health Foundation and Sturdy Memorial Foundation. In each of these roles, I continue to see first-hand how much can be achieved when organizations work toward the success and well-being of the people they serve.
Thank you again for choosing Bluestone Bank as your partner. I encourage you to reach out to any of our staff and see how we can assist you with your financial journey, and to truly experience what being backed by Bluestone can mean to you.
Meg D. McIsaac
