The Bank of Bennington is proud to announce a two- year sponsorship of Andy Newell leading up to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Newell, a Shaftsbury resident and member of the US Ski Team for nine years, is currently in Finland competing in the World Cup.
Newell said, “This sponsorship by The Bank of Bennington is exciting for me because this is the first time in my career I have had the opportunity to race on behalf of a local business from the town that I grew up in. I was born in Bennington and have lived in Shaftsbury my whole life and receive a tremendous amount of support from folks in the area. This sponsorship is an example of that support and it gives me great pride to be racing on behalf of a southern Vermont company and to be a hometown skier representing the hometown bank.”
Jim Brown, President and CEO of The Bank of Bennington, said, “We’re glad to be able to help Andy pursue his dream of Olympic gold, while at the same time work with him to promote The Bank of Bennington and the Bennington area.”
