Camden National Bank Announces Expansion to Augusta

AUGUSTA — Camden National Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Gregory A. Dufour has announced plans for the bank to expand into the Augusta market.

“We have many strong relationships with Augusta-area businesses, government agencies and people, which makes this a natural expansion of our franchise,” Dufour said.

Camden National Bank purchased the building located at 22 Western Ave. in Augusta on Dec. 29, 2011. The property will undergo significant renovations during 2012. The branch, which will be the 39th Camden National Bank location in Maine, will be a full-service bank, featuring a two-lane drive-up and a 24-hour ATM.

Camden National will bring its full suite of products and services to the Augusta market, including fee-free debit cards and free ATMs worldwide, online and mobile banking, checking and savings accounts and a variety of loan products.

“Our plan is to create a modern, full-service branch to serve individuals, businesses and government agencies,” said June B. Parent, Camden National’s executive vice president of retail banking. “In addition to incorporating the latest technology in our ATM, we’ll start with four new staff members who will provide first-class customer service to the Augusta market.”

Nancy Tracy, Camden National Bank’s vice president and retail regional manager for southern, western and central Maine, will be overseeing the Augusta branch.

Camden National plans to open the Augusta branch by late spring of this year.
