President of Newburyport Bank Joins NECC Board of Trustees
Haverhill, MA (November 10, 2022) – Lloyd Hamm Jr., CEO and President of Newburyport Bank, has been appointed to the Northern Essex Community College Board of Trustees by Governor Charlie Baker, effective immediately. In addition to a long career in banking and finance, Hamm has been involved with numerous non-profits and community organizations, held leadership roles on Boards of Directors and Trustees, chaired National Financial Services Committees, and held elected public positions.
Before joining Newburyport Bank, Hamm was the president and CEO of Homefield Credit Union in North Grafton. He spent the previous 25 years as the Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Information Officer of Eastern Bank. He also served as chief operations officer and founding dean of the business school at his alma mater, Anna Maria College.
“I have a personal belief in higher education and how it opens career doors, particularly with first-generation college students,” says Hamm. “I believe community colleges, particularly NECC, are exceptionally well qualified and positioned to create this opportunity. As a result, we can change lives for the better.”
Lloyd and his wife of 40 years, Linda, reside on the New Hampshire seacoast.
The college’s Board of Trustees includes nine members appointed by the governor to a maximum of two five-year terms, as well as an alumni-elected member, who also serves a maximum of 10 years and a student trustee who serves for two semesters.
