BOSTON, MA (June 8, 2023) – Brookline Bank announced today that Mary Creed, a Personal Banking Representative at the Bank’s West Roxbury office, will be retiring after 33 years. “Mary has had a long and successful career with Brookline Bank, holding many positions. She has a loyal following of customers, and I can’t emphasize enough how much we’ve appreciated her service throughout the years,” said Leslie Joannides-Burgos, EVP, Retail & Business Banking.

Mrs. Creed began her career as a Teller with Brookline Bank in November, 1979. After several promotions, she became a Manager, and later, an Assistant Treasurer. She left the Bank in 1988 to devote her time to her growing family. Mary returned to the Bank in September, 1998 as a part-time Customer Service Representative at the Brookline Village office. She transitioned back to a full-time position at the Bank’s then-new West Roxbury office in September, 2003.

Nearly 20 years later, Creed says “I love working at Brookline Bank, and have formed many wonderful relationships with my colleagues and customers. So many people have inspired me both professionally and personally. I truly appreciate all the opportunities the Bank has given me through the years. I feel blessed that I was able to raise my children and work at a career I love. I’ve been very proud to represent this wonderful bank for all these years.”

“Mary’s love for the Bank, her customers, and her colleagues shows through every day,” added Lisa Mariotti, AVP and Manager of the West Roxbury office.” If there’s an employee who could be called irreplaceable, she’d be the one. Mary is an inspiration to all of us, and sets a perfect example of how customer service should be delivered. She will be missed by all – but her legacy will live on!”
