New Chair, Officers and Directors Elected at Annual Meeting
June 22, 2022
The New Hampshire Bankers Association (NH Bankers) elected Officers and Directors for the coming fiscal year during its Annual Meeting held on June 17, 2022. The meeting was well attended, with over 100 members of the New Hampshire Banking industry featuring Governor Sununu as the keynote speaker.
Kristy Merrill, President of NH Bankers said, “I am deeply grateful to our Chair, Reggie Greene, and our board for their support and leadership during the past year. With their steady guidance we were able to effectively advocate to help defeat the proposal for bankers to report to the IRS on customers with transactions over $10,000 and the proposal of a State Bank to hold cannabis proceeds from the State. Working closely with our board, we also hosted our first industry-wide Month of Service and continue to serve as a key resource for all our bank members on issues ranging from regulatory developments to helping attract talent to the industry.”
NH Banker members voted to extend the board size from 8 to 10 directors and elect Ron Magoon, President/CEO, Franklin Savings Bank, as Chair of the Board for the coming year. Mr. Magoon, who previously served as Vice-Chair, is succeeding Reggie Greene, President & CEO, Claremont Savings Bank. NH Bankers welcomes Joan Gile, President & CEO, Piscataqua Savings Bank, and G.
