Hampden Bank names Baral as compliance officer
SPRINGFIELD Hampden Bank is pleased to announce the promotion of Nadia M. Baral to Compliance Officer. In her new position Baral will be primarily responsible for the day-to-day regulatory compliance functions.
She joined Hampden Bank in October 2006 after working for Westbank as the BSA and Compliance Assistant for five years. Craig W. Kaylor, Hampden Bank's General Counsel and Director of Compliance, said, "Nadia brings a myriad of talents to her new position. Her promotion is well deserved and we are fortunate to have a compliance officer with her unique capabilities."
She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
She currently resides in Westfield with her husband Darin.
A century and a half ago, almost every town had at least one bank they could call their own. These institutions were the financial heart of the community, fueling its growth during the good times and feeling its pain during the downturns. When the railroad expanded to Western Massachusetts in the mid-1800s, its workers needed a bank they could call their own. Hampden Bank was chartered in 1852 to fill that niche and today is filling another.
