Commercial Lender

April 17, 2023
We're the first new mutual bank nationwide in 50 years.

By developing deeper connections between communities and the food systems within them, we’re powering the revival of local, sustainable food in New England and New York. Our business has two sides: On one hand we lend to qualified food and farm businesses across the food value chain...and on the other, we offer deposit accounts for anyone who [loves/eats/grows/cooks] local food. The word “mutual” in our name means cooperative; we’re owned by our community, and legally accountable to our long-term commitments. At our core, we’re bridge builders – using banking to connect our partners (what we call the people and businesses who bank with us) to our mission and the greater sustainable food and agriculture ecosystem.

This posting is for a “Commercial Lender”…but for us, that’s another name for a public ambassador for our mission and brand. We want to differentiate ourselves from other lenders by our passion for food, sustainability, and the region we call home – and we’re looking for a person who shares those values. You’ll spend your time building lasting relationships with local sustainable food and agriculture businesses – advocating for our vision of a reinvigorated regional food system. Along the way, you’ll use creativity to find solutions to borrowers’ problems using the tools at our disposal – our loans, deposit products, and wraparound support. You’ll thrive in this role if you’re people-focused, entrepreneurial, and a problem solver. Friends of the right candidate would probably call them “a great listener, empathetic, and super driven.” We’re looking for an avid learner who can grow with our loan portfolio in the coming years.
