The Finance Authority of Maine presented Camden National Bank with the “Lender at Work for Maine” award at its Dec. 17 virtual board meeting. The award category is reserved for lenders with assets of $1.5 billion and above, and this is the bank’s 11th time as a FAME awardee. Over the past year, Camden National Bank partnered with FAME on 30 loans totaling approximately $3.8 million, helping to create and retain 408 Maine jobs.

FAME is a quasi-independent state agency that provides financial solutions to help Maine people achieve their business and higher education goals.

Earlier this month, Camden National Bank also received 2020 Customer Experience Leader awards from leading independent research firm, Greenwich Associates, in both U.S. Retail Banking and U.S. Commercial Small Business Banking.
