Morrisville, Vermont– David Silverman, president and CEO of Union Bank of Vermont and New Hampshire, announced that Eric B. Remick has been selected for the position of branch manager at the bank’s St. Albans location in 15 Mapleville Depot.

“We are very happy to have Eric lead the team at St. Albans,” Silverman said. “Eric has been with Union Bank for four years, starting at our Hardwick location and then moving to our Jericho branch, where he has provided exceptional service for the past three years. Eric has a natural ability as a leader , which was highlighted by the ease with which he was able to coach and support bank staff, as well as his success as a youth football coach in Jericho .”

Eric will assume management responsibilities from Katie Bessette, who has managed the bank’s St. Albans and Fairfax branches since 2020. The move will allow Katie to focus on Fairfax while both branches continue to grow.

“This is an opportunity to breathe new life into the St. Albans branch. I look forward to meeting local people and businesses, while focusing on strengthening our people,” said Eric.

Eric grew up in Danville and has always lived in Vermont. He studied math and education at Lyndon State University and is currently pursuing a degree in accounting.
