(Bridgehampton, NY- December 11, 2015) Bridgehampton National Bank (BNB) today celebrated the completion of a year-long renovation of its Sag Harbor branch with a holiday event that doubled as a formal welcome to the new Sag Harbor Branch Manager, Tara Fordham. Over 50 guests joined the BNB team for a festive toast. BNB opened its original branch in Sag Harbor in May of 2001, and this is the first major renovation of that location, adding over 600 sq. ft.
"We are very proud of this beautiful location and of being part of the unique community of Sag Harbor," says James Manseau EVP, Chief Retail Banking Officer. "It was time for an update to better serve our customers."
A resident of Sag Harbor, Ms. Fordham has been with BNB for over 15 years. Most recently she managed the Shelter Island Branch, but she previously served as the Assistant Branch Manager for the East Hampton Main Street Branch.
As a long-time and dedicated member of the local community, Tara is an active member of the Sag Harbor Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, and as of January 2016 will serve as Treasurer of the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce. Tara is originally from East Hampton but currently resides in Sag Harbor with her husband and two sons.
