ORONO, Maine — June B. Parent, executive vice president of retail banking for Camden National Bank, is pleased to announce that Lisa Gallant has been named retail banking officer and market manager of Orono and Old Town. In this new role, Gallant will have responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the Orono and Old Town branches, as well as business development, and loan and deposit growth for the branches.
“Having grown up in Old Town, I’m excited to be back in the area, “said Gallant. “I most especially welcome the opportunity to represent Camden National Bank in the Orono and Old Town communities and help continue to provide a great experience for our customers.”
Gallant has been with Camden National Bank since 2011, previously serving as branch manager in Bucksport. She has 12 years of banking experience, having worked at Key Bank in Maine and Middlesex Savings Bank in Massachusetts prior to joining Camden National Bank.
