Bank of America Hires Over 50 Small Business Bankers in New England

Bank of America announced that it is hiring more than 50 small business bankers in New England to provide guidance and counsel to local small business owners. The additions are part of the company’s previously announced plan to hire 1,000 small business bankers across the nation by mid-2012.

Through a relationship with a Bank of America small business banker, clients will have convenient access to local small business expertise and a dedicated resource that knows their business. Small business bankers will consult with small business owners at their place of business and assess their companies’ deposit, credit and cash management needs.

These new hires will support the unique needs of small business owners in the following regions:

  • Massachusetts — 32 hires, including 13 in Greater Boston.

  • Connecticut — 14 hires.

  • Rhode Island — 5 hires.

    “For well over 200 years, New England has been a pioneer of entrepreneurial innovation, and Bank of America is proud to be supporting the region’s entrepreneurial heritage,” said Bob Gallery, Massachusetts president for Bank of America. “Our small business bankers will provide business owners in New England with the tools they need to continue to be the engine that drives our local and national economy forward.”
