Chelsea Groton Bank Employees Graduate from CT School of Finance and Management

Groton, CT – Giusy Beaman, Assistant Secretary, Branch Operations Manager in the Bank’s Norwichtown branch; Penni Harlow, Assistant Secretary, Branch Manager of the Bank’s Mystic and Mystic Auto branches;  and Jennifer Seuferling, Branch Manager of the Bank’s North Stonington branch recently graduated from the Connecticut Bankers Association’s Connecticut School of Finance and Management (CSFM).
“Chelsea Groton believes in encouraging employees to continually learn. We’ve found that employees who are well-trained and knowledgeable feel more confident in their roles, and are able to provide a better experience to customers,” said Denise Stapienski, Assistant Vice President and Training Manager. “The CSFM program has proved to be a comprehensive and beneficial learning experience for all who have completed it. We are very proud of Giusy, Penni and Jen for their accomplishments.”
The primary purpose of CSFM is to provide an opportunity for key employees of Connecticut’s banking industry to obtain a more broad knowledge and awareness of banking theory, practices and procedures, capital markets and management functions which will be of substantial value in their preparation for new and greater responsibilities at or within the management level.
The two-year program is designed to increase the knowledge of students in their own specialties and at the same time introduce them to a wide range of banking topics. The program helps students develop a broader perspective of the industry, a more enlightened view of their own bank and most importantly, a better awareness of their individual capacities.
