CRDC also celebrated the dedication and support from Claudia Walker of Merrimack County Savings Bank, as she was named 2013 Commercial Lender of the Year. The award is based on the number of loans and dollar volume produced together by a commercial lender and CRDC. “Claudia understands the importance of collaboration and we are thankful for her dedication to CRDC,” said Stephen Heavener. “This award recognizes and thanks Claudia for her hard work throughout the year.”
“On behalf of Merrimack County Savings Bank, I would like to thank CRDC for the extraordinary service they provide,” said Claudia Walker, Senior VP, Commercial & Construction Loan Officer, Merrimack County Savings Bank. “One of our customers had a financing request this year that required an ‘out of the box’ approach. As usual, we found a solution from Stephen Heavener and Jennifer Boulanger at CRDC and through the SBA.”
