The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) recently recognized Union Savings Bank as a 2012 Eagle Award recipient. The bank was honored along with 10 other award recipients during SBA’s annual Lenders & Partners meeting on October 16 in Trumbull.
Union Savings Bank – the only Danbury-area bank honored – was a recipient in the “Outstanding Contributions to SBA Lending” category in recognition of its increased loan volume during the past several years. This award is the second the bank has received in this category. It received its first in 2010.
“We are honored to receive this recognition,” said Union Savings Bank President and CEO Fran Dattalo. “It is without a doubt the result of our continued efforts to build strong relationships with local businesses and contribute to their growth and the vitality of the communities we serve.”
