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

Groton, CT – Barb Curto of Mystic, CT, Assistant Vice President, Marketing Manager; Sara Lundy of Oakdale, CT, Risk and Compliance Specialist; and Marielle Winkelman of Ledyard, CT, Assistant Secretary, Customer Solutions Manager of the Bank’s Waterford branch, recently graduated from the Connecticut Bankers Association’s Connecticut School of Finance and Management (CSFM).
“Chelsea Groton believes in encouraging our employees to continually learn and develop themselves, so we offer a wide range of learning opportunities to our team members. Some learning is delivered through online learning platforms or instructor led courses, while other education is provided by external programming initiatives such as the CT School of Finance and Management,” said Kristin Zummo, Assistant Vice President, Learning and Development Manager. “The CSFM program has proven to be a comprehensive and valuable learning experience for all who have completed it. We are very proud of Barb, Sara and Marielle for their accomplishments.”
The primary purpose of CSFM is to provide an opportunity for key employees of Connecticut’s banking industry to obtain a broader 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.
