BANGOR, MAINE – November 3, 2015 – On Wednesday, November 4 at 11:00 a.m., members of the community along with Husson University students, faculty, and staff, will have the privilege of listening to the leader of one of Maine’s oldest and most prestigious financial institutions.

Robert Montgomery-Rice is the president and CEO of Bangor Savings Bank. His presentation, “Doing well by doing good: Bangor Savings Bank’s culture of social responsibility,” will shed light on the magic that happens when social responsibility and social entrepreneurship come together at a leading corporation.

“Bob’s leadership and dedication to serving the financial needs of our community give him a unique perspective on the importance of social entrepreneurship,” said Husson University College of Business Dean Marie Hansen, J.D.

We look forward to hearing how Bangor Savings Bank sustains and creates value for their shareholders and the community.”

As part of his presentation, Montgomery-Rice will describe Bangor Savings Bank's "You Matter More" campaign. This campaign is designed to drive business growth that benefits the community. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to ask Montgomery-Rice about the challenges, timelines, stakeholders, and strategic decisions that companies undertake in order to “do well by doing good.”

The event takes place at the Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business on the Bangor, Maine campus of Husson University. Montgomery-Rice’s presentation is free and open to the public.
