What first attracted me to Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is that they are all about their employees, customers, and community. To me, that is everything I want to be part of. Every employee wants to do their very best and work together as a team to create the best experience for our customers. I really enjoy being a part of such a positive group of people who inspire you to be the best you can be.

Corporate Clerk & Director of ESG

I had just graduated high school and a friend urged me to apply for a full time Customer Service Representative (CSR) position at the Bank. Since then, the Bank has helped me grow beyond what I ever imagined. After being hired as a Seasonal CSR, I quickly moved into Commercial and eventually into a Commercial Loan Assistant position. I am now Corporate Clerk & Director of ESG.

Will Hatt
SVP, Community Banking Relationship Manager

I worked at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust for around 13 years previously, and to be honest, I missed being here. I missed the people, the culture and the bank’s focus on customer service and its commitment to local communities and customers. It’s a great bank with great opportunity for professional growth. I have really enjoyed being back, seeing my former team members that are still here, and getting to visit my former clients.

My career began with Bar Harbor Bank & Trust as a teller for the Southern NH Region. With the Bank’s leadership and commitment, I was able to move throughout the company into different roles, which is what landed me in the profession of Branch Relationship Manager with endless possibilities to continue my growth with the Bank.
