Perry’s relationship with South Shore Bank. “Our company was involved with the South Shore Chamber of Commerce and through the Chamber heard about South Shore Bank’s superb reputation and extensive involvement in the community, so we reached out to South Shore Bank to finance a building.” Almost 50 years later, A.W. Perry and South Shore Bank are still working together. “South Shore Bank has competitive rates and state of the art services and is a lending institution where you can be on a first-name basis,” says Beal. “I often work with Mike Healy, the bank’s Senior Vice President and Senior Commercial Loan Officer, who is incredibly responsive. With any interaction, we get consistent attention. We know that our loans are not going to get shipped out and bought by someone else; we are local, and we like to do business locally. Whenever we have questions about our loans, accounts, debt service coverage or any number of transactions, South Shore Bank is easy to reach. I pick up the phone to call Mike or another member of their excellent commercial lending staff and they respond quickly.”
