Since April 2011, Rockland Trust has been an exciting client that has utilized a number of different marketing tactics to spread the word about their community bank. Recently, the Providence Business News did a story on Rockland Trust acknowledging their outstanding customer service approaches and their aggressive strategy of buying market share in the Northeast.

Among other accolades recently received, Rockland Trust was listed in Forbes as one of the “Best Banks” in Boston. The Warren Group of Boston has also selected Rockland Trust as the top commercial lender for the past two years.
CEO Christopher Oddleifson is always looking for ways to expand the bank. A few years ago, Rockland Trust bought Benjamin Franklin Bank, expanding the company west of Boston with eleven new branches. They have also made a strong impact in Rhode Island. “We have already been able to generate a lot of good business from really strong, well-managed Rhode Island companies. It has opportunity, and it’s right next door.”
The opportunities seem endless for Rockland Trust, who may soon be competing with some of the larger banks such as Bank of America or Sovereign. With the remarkable growth that Rockland Trust has been seeing, there is no doubt that they will remain at the top for many years to come and we are privileged to have them as one of clients at inSegment.
Congratulations Rockland Trust!
