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:

“Ledyard National Bank is a place that as soon as I walk through the door I always have friendly reception. The services that are provided give me the flexibility I require in both my business and personal life. The service I receive is both professional and community based; I am not just a number. I love coming into the Hanover office because the moment I walk in I am greeted with a friendly smile and addressed by name. I tell people who are new to the area to bank with Ledyard National Bank. My entire family banks at Ledyard.

A preferred benefit is Generations Gold. I can sincerely say that the perks provided by this program are a nice incentive for me and for my clients.”

"The extraordinary effort on the part of Doug Gross, CPA was most helpful in settling a tax matter. Doug Gross pursued a matter that I was certain could not be changed. He went ahead and got it changed by using basic common sense, deduction and logic. The tax authorities heard him, agreed with him, and we received a refund.

We have a strong appreciation for Ledyard Financial Advisors' fortitude in supporting a client's circumstances and needs."

“In the Upper Valley, the Ledyard Norwich office is without equal. ‘Helpful,’ ‘efficient,’ ‘friendly,’ and ‘professional’ are words that do not do justice to the extraordinary attention that Ledyard’s employees give to all our banking needs. An example of this exceptional care is illustrated by the following story. Several years ago, when my wife was abroad for several months, her employer failed to deposit her monthly salary check into her Ledyard account. Noticing the absence of the deposit, Norwich’s branch manager hunted down my wife’s telephone number in France and called to alert her to the problem. Such care and attention are, in this day and age, all too infrequent. But not at Ledyard, I’m happy to say. I can think of no other bank or business that would have gone to such trouble."

“My relationship with Ledyard Bank began 6+ years ago with a line of credit for our business. The professionalism of their people and their people’s interest in our business’s well being has led to what I would call the quintessential community bank relationship. In addition to being a business partner, Ledyard is now the sole provider for my family’s personal banking requirements from deposit accounts to a home mortgage, to a home equity loan, to CDs and savings accounts for the kids. I previously worked on Wall Street and dealt with the ups and downs associated with the world’s largest banks. By contrast, it is refreshing and comforting to know that Ledyard will be there in both good and challenging economic times and that they have good, solid people who know me, care about my affairs and are committed to serving the people and businesses of this community.”

“I began using Ledyard National Bank at the time New London Trust was sold. I had a superior banking relationship with New London Trust and noted many of the people with whom I had worked were transitioning and working at Ledyard.

I have banked at Ledyard for the past 9 years for my business and our personal banking and that same, superior relationship has carried forward.

In this day and age of customer service centers and account numbers it is nice to deal with the people at Ledyard where you are greeted in a friendly manner and by name. Everyone has a “can do” attitude and helps with any questions or concerns immediately. I truly appreciate such prompt service!”

"I don't consider Ledyard National a bank; I consider it my second home. Everyone is so friendly. I occasionally make a deposit, but more often I make withdrawals. Everyone is so kind and helpful – it's such a personal relationship, and other banks do not have this quality. I love every branch!! I visit them frequently, and they are all just marvelous people. I will not consider ever banking with another bank while I'm alive – I am ever devoted to Ledyard National Bank. I've been a customer since 1997.”

“Ledyard National Bank was an early and enthusiastic supporter of Northern Stage. They helped us gain needed visibility in our early years by subsidizing our advertising campaign, and they have sponsored several of our productions, from Blithe Spirit to All My Sons and The Diary of Anne Frank. Their continued commitment to the arts has helped us bring the finest Broadway and National Tour actors to the Upper Valley.”

“The Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) is proud to have had Ledyard National Bank as a co-marketing sponsor for our summer promotion of VINS Nature Camps on Vermont Public Radio. Ledyard helped us get the word about our camps to residents of Vermont and the Upper Valley more quickly and effectively than would have been possible otherwise. Ledyard’s support of VINS Nature Camps helped us come closer to our goal of “leaving no child inside” during the precious summer months when kids have the best opportunity to explore without limits and have fun outdoors.

By supporting VINS and its programs, Ledyard provides an important service to Vermont and New Hampshire and helps VINS pursue its mission to protect the environment through education for all ages. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Ledyard and working together to help make our region a great place to live and work.”

"Upon moving to the Upper Valley four years ago to open our business we approached Ledyard for our business banking needs. We were impressed by their responsiveness and excellent customer service. Having only dealt with large impersonal national banks it was refreshing to be identified as an individual holding an account that was valued. Ledyard has been more than helpful in anticipating our banking needs by supplying us with competitive rates and personalized service. We look forward to a long and healthy relationship."
