National Bank of Middlebury welcomes its new president
MIDDLEBURY — National Bank of Middlebury, together with customers and community members, gathered on Feb. 4 to celebrate the bank’s new president, Caroline R. Carpenter. She is the bank’s 11th president, and the first female president since its incorporation in 1831.
Carpenter joined the bank in 1997 and has held many roles in the organization, including chief operating officer, executive vice president, technology manager and information security officer. Throughout her tenure, she has consistently contributed to the advancement of innovation and technology while maintaining the bank’s core values.
In her address at the celebration, Carpenter stressed that the National Bank of Middlebury will move into the future while maintaining the values that have strengthened it through the decades.
“We welcome technology and innovation and we remain constant to values we hold dear — pride and enthusiasm in our work, respect and integrity for one another, commitment and service to our customers and neighbors, and investment in our communities,” she said.
Carpenter succeeds G. Kenneth Perine, who served as NBM president beginning in January 1992.
In addition to serving as the new president of the bank, Carpenter also serves on the NBM board of directors and is treasurer of Middlebury National Corp., the bank’s holding company.
Carpenter is a graduate of the University of Vermont and the New England School of Banking at Williams College. She has been part of the banking community in Addison County since 1991, serving as a mortgage loan originator with Vermont Federal Bank for six years before joining National Bank of Middlebury. Carpenter has served on various local nonprofit boards, including Habitat for Humanity, Addison County Humane Society, and HOPE.
Carpenter resides in Salisbury with her husband, Craig, and their three children, William, Catherine and Jonathan.
