Katahdin Trust names Beaton as VP, community banking officer

HOULTON, Maine  – Katahdin Trust has announced the appointment of Annette Beaton to vice president, community banking officer.She joined Katahdin in 1987 and has served in various positions, including teller, loan clerk, branch manager, and retail services officer.

“Annette has been a valued employee of Katahdin since we opened our Houlton branch in 1987,” said Jon Prescott, president and CEO. “As she transitions into a different position at Katahdin, I’d like to extend my congratulations and thank her for her leadership and oversight of the Houlton branch over the past 18 years. I look forward to her continued success in her new role.” 

A Houlton native with 34 years of banking experience, Beaton will continue to serve as a retail lender and provide her excellent customer service. In her new role as community banking officer, she will primarily focus on retail lending tasks and transition away from the daily branch management activities at the Houlton office.  

“I am thrilled to be able to spend my time concentrating on helping our customers with their lending needs,” said Beaton. “We’re able to provide solutions for the most complex loan needs but small enough to get them done quickly. As a team, we understand that every customer is different and that personalized solutions are needed to make their life easier while providing unmatched customer service. I look forward to continuing to serve the Bank in my new role and work with our friends and neighbors in the greater Houlton community.”

“Annette has a strong passion for helping our customers, in-depth banking knowledge and years of lending expertise,” said Billi Griffeth, regional vice president, retail banking. “We’re excited about the growth we’ve experienced in the Houlton area and are actively seeking someone to fill the branch manager position.”
