Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack) recently received the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce Pinnacle Award for Business of the Year. Several hundred guests attended the 12th Annual Pinnacle Awards luncheon on Thursday, June 1st to celebrate businesses, non-profits and individuals who have demonstrated professional excellence and commitment to the Chamber and the community. The Merrimack was selected as one of the event’s top honorees.
“I’m honored and absolutely humbled by this recognition,” said Philip Emma, President of the Merrimack. “It’s especially significant because the award occurs during our 150th anniversary year. I am grateful for our employees’ tireless efforts to serve others and their commitment to the greater good. I could not be prouder of them and all they’ve done to improve the communities we serve – now and over the last 150 years!”
Since its founding in 1867, the Merrimack has remained steadfast in fostering the economic health and well-being of the communities it impacts. Contributing to and supporting organizations, non-profits and projects that improve the quality of life for local citizens was a founding principle and continues to guide its mission and values today. “Although much has changed over the years, our unyielding commitment to the values on which we were founded remains the same,” continued Emma.
The 12th Annual Pinnacle Awards was held at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord. Additional honorees included: Arnie’s Place, Severino Trucking Company, White Birch Center and Mayor James P. Bouley. The luncheon also announced the 2017 W. Grant McIntosh Volunteer of the Year Award and Concord’s Young Professional of the Year and recognized the Leadership Greater Concord Class of 2017.
