“Nancy’s depth of knowledge in retail banking, banking operations and online banking systems has been critical to the success and longevity of our organization throughout her incredible 43-year tenure,” said Philip Emma, President of Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack). “Her knowledge, thoughtfulness and leadership will be missed, and we wish Nancy the very best in her retirement.”

“Throughout her many years of service, Nancy has served the Bank well in a wide variety of roles across several departments,” said Angela Strozewski, Senior Vice President and Operations Officer. “Nancy could always be counted on to stick with issues until they are resolved, effectively leading and encouraging her team in the process. It’s been an honor to work alongside her!”

Swenson joined the Merrimack in 1975 as a teller, and was subsequently promoted to Teller Supervisor in 1979, Head Teller in 1981 and Retail Services Officer in 1995. In 1998, she moved into Operations as the Assistant Vice President, Operations Officer, and in 2002, promoted to Vice President, Operations Officer. Following the affiliation of the Merrimack with Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB), Swenson transitioned to her current role of VP, Digital Banking. Throughout the 43 years that Swenson has been with the Merrimack and NHMB, she has made numerous contributions, most recently being her active participation in the conversion of MVSB’s online banking platform.

New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp, a mutual holding company, was formed in 2013 when two New Hampshire-based community banks, Meredith Village Savings Bank and Merrimack County Savings Bank, formally affiliated – the first relationship of its kind in New Hampshire. This strategic partnership has positioned the Banks to leverage each other’s strengths as they work together to advance a shared vision of maintaining and enhancing their community banking standards and values. MillRiver Wealth Management joined as a third subsidiary of NHMB in 2015, combining the financial advisory divisions of MVSB and The Merrimack. NHMB combined assets total more than $1.7 billion.
