The bank’s headquarters will feature a complete, inside-and-out rethinking of the workplace, as well as a reinvented branch designed around delivering an extraordinary customer experience in an environment conducive to learning and collaboration.

Chelsea Groton’s branch, located on the ground floor of the headquarters building, will remain open throughout the entire renovation. For additional flexibility and convenience, the location currently features a walk-up Video Banking ATM, and will soon offer two drive-up Video Banking ATMs where, at the tap of a screen, customers will be face-to-face with a local Chelsea|LIVE video banker who can handle most transactions, as if a customer was inside the branch.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of the revitalization of our town center and to make this very important investment in the place where we live and work,” shared Michael Rauh. “We’re excited for the community to take advantage of this new building, with large video conferencing rooms for personal enrichment programs and public gatherings, and a reinvented branch designed with learning, mentoring and collaboration in mind. We’re thrilled to be able to provide our community with this powerful combination of exceptional people, service, and technology, in a space designed to encourage and strengthen personal relationships.”
