Merchants Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph L. Boutin today announced the appointment of Darcy L. Cunningham to the position of branch president of the bank’s Winooski office. Cunningham succeeds Darlene Cooper, who is preparing for a direct role in the Bank’s retail banking expansion plans. Cunningham will assume her duties as branch president on October 15, 2002, leading the branch staff that includes Customer Service Representatives Cindy Gilhooly, Kelley Kimball, Lisa Dudley, and Marina Kaye.
“Darcy is a fine example of Merchants Bank’s idea of a community banker,” said Joseph L. Boutin. “She provides outstanding service to her commercial and retail customers and has built strong relationships in her community. I am confident that our Winooski customers will benefit from her expertise and her commitment to the community banking ideal.”
“I am looking forward to being the branch president at the Merchants Bank in my own community, and helping my Winooski neighbors with all their banking needs,” commented Cunningham.
Cunningham joined Merchants Bank in 1987 as a proof operator while she was still a high school student. She became a teller in 1990 and worked her way up to Senior Head Teller. In January, 1996, she was appointed Branch President of Merchants Bank’s North Avenue office. In addition, she served as the loan officer for her market area. She successfully completed the Branch President Leadership Development Courses, Levels I and II, offered through Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, VT. As a Certified Trainer for Merchants Bank, she is responsible for conducting the Bank’s workshops on products and services for all newer staff. A Colchester, VT, native, Cunningham currently resides in Winooski with her family.
