The Board of Directors of Cape Cod 5 recently awarded a $25,000 charitable donation on the occasion of President & CEO Dorothy A. Savarese’s 25th anniversary with the Bank. On July 20, 2018, Savarese and Thomas Evans, Vice Chairman of the Board of Cape Cod 5, presented the $25,000 check to WE CAN, an organization that empowers women with unique services that inspire hope and bring increased opportunity, self-sufficiency and stability. WE CAN's Executive Director Dianne Gauthier and President of the Board of Directors Pam Kukla received the check on behalf of the organization.
“For the past 25 years, Dorothy has been a leader in the organization, helping Cape Cod 5 evolve to serve effectively as our customers’ trusted financial partner, and work with them on their terms. During her time as CEO, Cape Cod 5 has grown to be the largest bank headquartered on the Cape and Islands, and Dorothy continues to lead the Bank’s expansion of its commitment to the community,” said Evans. “Dorothy’s dynamic and enthusiastic leadership at the Cape Cod 5, in our community and in the banking industry continues to make a positive difference.”
He added: “As a board, we wanted to recognize this occasion in a special way and worked with Dorothy to ensure that our charitable gift on her behalf was something that was of special importance to her and tied in to her work of helping to advance the careers of women in business.”
