Webster wins four

Webster Bank, a Northeastern regional bank with a location in Wilton, was recently honored with four 2015 U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Eagle Awards.

The bank was awarded Lender of the Year by Dollar Volume, Top Third Party Lender of the Year, Top Lender to Veterans, and Top Lender for Job Creation and Retention.

The awards were announced Nov. 19 at the Connecticut District office of the SBA’s annual Lenders & Partners meeting in New Haven.

The senior vice president and director of government guaranteed lending for Webster, Robert Polito, said, “Top overall dollar volume, leading lender to veterans, and top lender for job creation and retention is a testament to Webster’s continuing leadership and dedication to Connecticut’s business community.”
