Christine Hayes, Sr. Vice President, Premier Banking Relationship Manager, BankNewport

March 2022


Christine Hayes can trace her career in banking back to college, when she worked as a teller over the summer and discovered just how much she loved it. After graduating from Boston College with a BA in Economics, she entered a management training program at Old Stone Bank, which essentially launched her career.

When her son was born, Christine managed to balance a full-time job and motherhood, fostering meaningful relationships with her customers while spending quality time with her son: “I am so fortunate to have a wonderful family, from my husband and son to my incredible parents, who have supported me through my professional successes.” 

About a decade ago, Christine charted a new course when she developed and managed a Premier Banking Division that she was able to transition over to BankNewport. Christine describes it as “a perfect fit, providing concierge-level service to top deposit customers.” Today, Christine is the Senior Vice President, Premier Banking Relationship Manager at BankNewport. She manages a team that offers an exclusive banking experience for those who desire a high level of service and personal touch.

“I truly love my job,” says Christine. “It’s so important to have a job that you truly enjoy. It makes you a happier, healthier person, which carries over to all aspects of your life.”

Whether it’s her team of employees or her valued customers, Christine is most proud of the genuine, personal relationships she’s formed with each. “I work with customers who I may have known for over 30 years, as well as new customers,” says Christine, who is known for her supportiveness and dependability, as well as her kind-heartedness. For her, the job is about making people happy: “I enjoy assisting with all their banking needs and beyond!”

Making a positive impact in the communities in which they serve is at the core of BankNewport. “They truly believe that by helping individuals and businesses succeed financially, the whole community thrives.”
