Cambridge, MA East Cambridge Savings Bank (ECSB) president and CEO Gilda Nogueira was featured in the American Bankers Association (ABA) Banking Journal Podcast. In the half hour interview, Nogueira discussed the arc of her career at the bank, the principles of a mutually-held bank, and the importance of fostering the next generation of leaders in the financial industry. The ABA is a national association representing the interest of the financial services industry. ABA’s podcast features banking executives and influencers and is broadly distributed across popular podcast platforms.
“I was honored to be featured in the ABA Banking Journal Podcast and have an opportunity to talk about the important role that mutual banks like East Cambridge Savings Bank play in the financial services sector,” said Nogueira. “The ABA has been a staunch and effective advocate for banks of all sizes nationwide, and I appreciate that they use this podcast to highlight the great work that our industry can do for the people, businesses, and organization we serve.”
During the interview, Nogueira elaborated on some of the unique training opportunities that the Bank has for the next generation of bankers including the Educational Training Facility and high school branch at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. At this branch, high school seniors take a course in banking and staff a fully operational branch inside the high school during the academic year. There are only handful of these educational training facilities across the state. “Mutuality allows us to put so much money and energy into the community,” said Nogueira.
