Maine Savings’ Vice President of Member Services retires after nine years with the credit union
HAMPDEN, ME (April 16, 2015) — Maine Savings Vice President of Member Services, Don Poisson, has announced his retirement this May, 2015. His long, successful career in the Maine financial services industry began in 1969.

His skills and commitment as well as his kind personality and sense of humor will be greatly missed.”
