Camden — The Finance Authority of Maine presented Camden National Bank with the “Lender at Work for Maine” Award at its annual Showcase Maine event recently, in Portland. The award category is reserved for lenders with assets of $1.5 billion and above and this is the bank’s 10th time as a FAME awardee. Earlier this month, Camden National Bank also received the 2019 U.S. Small Business Administration District Director Award. Over the past year, Camden National Bank partnered with FAME on 48 loans totaling approximately $13.6 million. This in turn helped to create 109 Maine jobs and retain an additional 484 jobs.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to support the growth and success of hard-working, local businesses which help our communities and local economy thrive,” said Tim Nightingale, executive vice president and senior lending officer at Camden National Bank. “We are honored to receive both FAME’s ‘Lender at Work for Maine Award’ and the SBA’s ‘District Director Award’ this year as these recognitions represent the long-lasting impact that our partnerships and capabilities have on Maine businesses, families, and communities.”

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