“I am so honored to be on the SBSI board and serve as its chair,” Hadiaris said. “SBSI is the most people-considerate organization I know. The sincere goodness of the people who work at SBSI is continually humbling. They truly get to know the customers and are actively involved in the community. For close to 200 years the Bank has been rock solid in its commitment to its customers, and in this way the strength of SBSI mirrors the strength of the people and communities it serves.”
Hadiaris and her family live in Saco and love the community’s blend of beaches, running and walking paths, athletic activities and caring neighbors and friends.
