President's Message

I am excited to announce that on March 3, 2014 Centrix Bank entered into a Definitive Merger Agreement with Eastern Bank, headquartered in Boston, MA.  Under the terms of this agreement, Eastern Bank will acquire all outstanding common shares of Centrix Bank shareholders, providing 100% ownership to Eastern.

The transaction is subject to both regulatory approvals and the vote of Centrix Bank shareholders.  At this time it is expected that a closing will occur in the fall of 2014.  Eastern Bank brings to Centrix Bank stakeholders and New Hampshire a rich and highly successful banking history that spans almost two centuries.  This geographic expansion into New Hampshire is a very logical extension of their current marketplace.

For more details please refer to the News & Events section of this web site.  Additionally, you will find a list of Frequently Asked Questions.  I am personally happy to also address any questions or comments you may have and can be reached at or at 603.606.4700.

We look forward to our new partnership with Eastern Bank at a time of a rapidly changing environment, and one in which our new association will help us serve our customers, employees and communities with even greater resources and capacity.  Thank you!

Joseph B. Reilly, President/CEO
