Chelsea Groton Bank to Kickoff Construction of Updated Headquarters-Company Hopes to be at the Forefront of a New, Revitalized Groton Town Center

 A part of the Groton community since 1854, Chelsea Groton Bank is
preparing to embark on a complete renovation of its Groton headquarters and bank
branch on Poquonnock Road, with construction set to begin this spring.
The bank’s new headquarters will feature a complete, inside-and-out rethinking of the
workplace, as well as a reinvented branch designed around delivering an extraordinary
customer experience in an environment conducive to learning and collaboration.
Chelsea Groton strives to be an innovative financial services company that inspires its
employees, customers and communities to achieve their full potential,” President and
CEO Michael Rauh said. “And our headquarters will reflect that, inside and out – not to
mention being an exciting and inspiring place for our more than 200 employees to
learn, collaborate and go the extra mile for our customers every day.”
“Our headquarters will remain right here in the middle of Groton – as it should,” Rauh
continued. “We’re thrilled to be a part of the revitalization of our town center and to
make this very important investment in the place where we live and work. We’ve
learned that when we put our time, money and passion into all of our local communities,
everyone succeeds.”
The project falls under the leadership and watchful eye of Tony Joyce, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
“We’re excited for the community to really take advantage of this new building,” Joyce
said, “with large video conferencing rooms for personal enrichment programs and public
gatherings, and a reinvented branch designed with learning, mentoring and
collaboration in mind. We’re thrilled to be able to provide our community with this
powerful combination of exceptional people, service, and technology, in a space
designed to encourage and strengthen personal relationships.”
Chelsea Groton customers will be happy to know that during the entire renovation, the
Groton branch will remain open. And for additional flexibility and convenience, the
location will feature two drive-up and one walk-up Video Banking ATM where, at the tap
of a screen, customers will be face-to-face with a local Chelsea|LIVE video banker who
can handle most transactions without missing a beat.
