Message from the President

Our trust department assets under management have grown to $782 million at year end, while our wealth management firm had assets under management or administration of $3.2 billion as of December 31, 2022.

Our Community Investment Program, which is funded with up to ten percent of our net after-tax income, continues to support a wide range of non-profits located within our market area. Essex Savings Bank is proud to have donated in excess of $5.2 million since the program was founded in 1995. In addition to providing funds to these worthy causes, many of our employees volunteer their time and talents to these vital organizations, demonstrating that we are truly woven into the fabric of our communities.

I am privileged to serve as the 18th President and CEO of the Bank, leading a remarkable team who dedicate their professional lives to assisting our customers. Community banks play a vital role in the local economy and we strive to help those who live and work locally with all of their financial needs.

We thank our clients, directors, trustees, officers and staff who support our mission to provide excellent service and build long-lasting relationships based on trust and integrity.


Diane H. Arnold
President and Chief Executive Officer
