Published DateGILFORD — Merrimack County Savings Bank is pleased to recognize Eric MacDonald, Senior Credit Analyst, with its Employee STAR of the Month award for April 2013.
Merrimack STAR awards are peer-nominated and given out monthly. Eric has been recognized for his exceptional initiative, drive and continued service to our country through the National Guard.
One of the 12 monthly prizewinners will go on to win the Annual STAR Award which includes a paid vacation day and cash prize.
"It was a lot of fun surprising Eric at our Business Center this month," said Paul C. Rizzi, Jr., President and CEO of Merrimack County Savings Bank. "Eric's unflappability and strong initiative was evident in the numerous comments he received."
Rizzi then read a few examples from comments submitted about Eric by his peers, "Eric is the consummate professional. He is always the first one to volunteer for projects. He has never said he is too busy to accommodate anyone who needs his help. His job has become increasingly complex and he continues to accept new challenges willingly. He handles the busy schedule with good humor and grace."
Rizzi continued, "Eric has been working for the bank since 2005 and for two of those years he has been deployed first to Afghanistan and then to Kuwait for a year or more each time. I have been amazed after each deployment at how seamless his transition back to the working world has been after being away for so long. He continues to serve our country through the National Guard on two week national deployments a year plus many weekend obligations."
