Each year on January 3, we take a moment to celebrate the anniversary of the opening of Enterprise Bank and reflect and appreciate how far we have come. This year, as we returned from the New Year holiday, we celebrated our 34th anniversary with fellowship and team camaraderie and decorations and treats for our customers in the branches.
On January 3, 1989, Enterprise Bank opened its doors at 222 Merrimack Street in Lowell with 21 employees and a vision to help create successful businesses, opportunities, wealth, and vibrant, prosperous communities. In the years since, we have grown to 27 branches in 23 communities in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire, and nearly 600 team members.
We continue to adhere to our purpose to make a positive difference in the lives of the individuals, businesses, and communities we so passionately serve. Our team members and our organization continually strive to play an active role in making every community in which we operate a better place to live and work and we are grateful to often be recognized for volunteerism and as a Top Place to Work.
As we reflect on our successes, we thank our team members, customers, and the communities in which we operate and look forward to what the future holds.
