Testimonials


We value the relationships developed with our clients. It is a privilege to earn their loyalty and trust. Please read more about being a Ledyard client:

"Our family business is proud to have served Upper Valley guests since 1976. Over the years, our partnership with Ledyard National Bank has contributed to the growth and success of our restaurants. Ledyard has helped us finance numerous projects, both business and personal. Their commitment to customer service and personal relationships has been exemplary. It means a lot to us to be partners with a local bank that really cares about its clients and their businesses."

Marc Milowsky
President, Blue Sky Restaurant Group



"Banking with Ledyard, a local bank who knows us and our business, is an advantage we appreciate. Since purchasing the Norwich Inn in 2006, we've relied on Ledyard's business banking team to lead us smoothly through the loan process and provide relevant guidance to help grow our business. Ledyard was there for us again in 2009, providing additional funding for our expansion. It's a great feeling to know that we have such a strong community bank believing in us and supporting our dreams."

"My wife, Chrysanthi, and I moved to Kendal in 2002, after living in Hanover for four decades. After years of working with a financial institution that was not based locally, we decided to move our trust account and utilize another firm - a local one that we could reach by walking down the street. So we thought of Ledyard Financial Advisors, and were pleasantly surprised to find familiar faces, outstanding service and the continuation of several long-standing relationships. We are delighted to be with trusted individuals who may be queried on a wide range of financial questions - for example, on the best way to help college-bound grandchildren: via custodial accounts or, as the Ledyard team informed us, by paying tuition bills directly to a college itself. All in all, we appreciate this personalized service that we discovered comfortably down the street."

Professor Emeritus Peter Bien



"As a family business based in the Upper Valley, having a banking partner with local roots is important to us. Ledyard Bank has been that partner since 1999. Through the years, we've relied on Ledyard for everything from cash management services to lending resources for our 20,000-square-foot facility expansion. The entire staff has always been prompt, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. With a partner like Ledyard, we know we'll continue to prosper and serve the needs of our customers well into the future."

President & CEO, Keene Medical Products, Inc.



"When we bought FloorCraft, we struggled with the idea of the business changing banks. Fortunately, Ledyard made the transition extremely easy and well worth the effort. Their expert advice and continued guidance reinforce that decision every day. Ledyard truly is an innovative bank with a hometown feel. Their amazing team consistently goes over and above for their clients. It is such a wonderful feeling to walk into our local bank and have everyone know our names! We feel that we are part of an invaluable partnership that will do nothing but grow for years to come."

As a real estate developer, having a good banking relationship is key to the success our of projects, like The Commons at Silent Brook. Ledyard's approach has been a breath of fresh air: clear lending terms and fast decision-making. I especially appreciate the hassle-free way of managing our credit line on a monthly basis. Our bookkeeper was blown away by the online banking system. In an increasingly complex world, it is important to have simple banking solutions at your disposal. All around good service!"

"Six years ago when we moved our architectural firm to New London, we asked people locally for bank referrals. Ledyard was mentioned to us several times. When we were introduced to some of the staff and learned that their services fit our financial needs perfectly, we decided to move our accounts. Ledyard was instrumental in assisting us with both our personal and professional banking needs ranging from our house mortgage to the expansion of our firm. We value the relationship we've established with Ledyard and we are looking forward to continuing our affiliation with them in the years to come."
