Favorite part about working for Champlain National Bank: Our relevance to the business community.  My job allows me to have a visible impact on my surrounding community.  It enables me to meet business owners and share their vision, and it gives me the tools to help them to make their long term goals a reality.  A lot of businesses (both large and small) would have a very difficult time maintaining operations if it werenít for the fundamental role that banks play as suppliers of capital, holders of deposits, and providers of solutions for financial intermediation and mitigating risk.  Along with accountants and attorneys, bankers are a fundamental part of the core of indispensable professional services that businesses need, and thatís very rewarding and fun!
