The Village Bank to Open New Corporate Office in Newton

Joseph A. De Vito, President and CEO of The Village Bank, announced plans today to open a new corporate office located at 320 Needham Street in Newton. The Bank will lease roughly half of the 40,000 square-foot facility, bringing together all non-retail staff, including the Bank’s Loan Center, under one roof.

“We’re excited to expand our presence in this vibrant area in the City of Newton, which has been our home base for more than a century,” said De Vito. “Our new facility will help us increase efficiency, collaboration and enhance our efforts to provide the best possible service to our valued customers.”

Slated to open by the end of 2019, the new corporate office will house approximately 80 employees. The Bank’s branch locations will remain unchanged.

320 Needham Street is owned by an affiliate of The Bulfinch Companies, Inc.

The Village Bank will award college scholarships totaling $50K to Class of 2019 students

Joseph A. De Vito, president and CEO of The Village Bank, announced today that the Bank’s Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation is now accepting college scholarship applications from local high school seniors.

Seventeen scholarships totaling $50,000 will be awarded to college-bound students of the Class of 2019. The scholarships can be applied toward tuition, room and board, or supplies at an accredited college or university. The application deadline is March 29, 2019.

The Foundation will award two $10,000 scholarships and fifteen $2,000 scholarships. The $10,000 scholarships require that, in addition to academic achievement, the recipient must have been actively involved in community and/or charitable causes, in a leadership capacity. Eligible applicants who are Newton or Wayland residents will be considered in both award categories. Eligible applicants who do not reside in Newton or Wayland will be considered for the $2,000 awards.

“The $10,000 scholarships will recognize students who not only excel, but who also share The Village Bank’s strong commitment to supporting the community and initiatives that directly benefit our friends and neighbors,” said De Vito.

Complete rules, requirements, and application forms are available at local high schools and at The Village Bank’s branches in Auburndale, Newtonville, Nonantum, Newton Highlands, Waban, West Newton and Wayland.

The Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation’s investment in education since the program began in 1998 will total $802,000 with this year’s awards, according to De Vito. The scholarships are funded in part by the Golf Classic held by The Village Bank each fall.
