Moore Retires, Andstrom elected as Director at Jewett City Savings Bank

Brian_AndstromAt the 142nd Annual Meeting held on March 25, 2015, Kevin C. Merchant, president and CEO of Jewett City Savings Bank, announced the retirement of Dr. Eric L. Moore from the Board of Directors.

Dr. Moore began his exceptional service with the Bank as a corporator in 1998 and served as a board member from 2000 to 2015. He served on many board committees and was instrumental in helping guide the Bank’s investment committee, which he chaired for the last decade.

“Dr. Moore has been an integral part of Jewett City Savings Bank’s success. His commitment to serving the Bank, and his investment guidance will be sorely missed,” said Kevin Merchant.

Merchant also announced the election of Brian A. Andstrom to the Board of Directors. An award-winning, broker associate with the Partner Network since 2008, Andstrom is also a partner of B.E.B.E. Company, a land development company. He has extensive experience in residential, commercial, industrial, and construction real estate, which he gained early in his career with the Petrowsky Real Estate Company – a firm he later owned and merged with Realty World Quintal prior to joining the Partner Network.

Brian has an exceptional track record of professional success and service. He was recently named a “Five Star Real Estate Agent” by The American Registry, and is a fourteen-time recipient of the Eastern Connecticut Association of Realtors “Top 5% Sales” Award. He is also a past recipient of the “Business Person of the Year” Award from the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce.

He has served on the board of directors of the Eastern Connecticut Association of Realtors and as chairman of the Northeast Board of Realtors Professional Standards Committee for nearly a decade.

“Brian’s vast experience with commercial, industrial, and construction real estate will be a valuable asset in helping Jewett City Savings Bank increase home ownership and business development opportunities that strengthen our local communities,” added Merchant.
