Serving Portland and surrounding areas
Julie has been with GSB since 2001, and with her solid background in commercial credit, she’s helped establish the Small Business Team as a leader in the marketplace. A Portland native and graduate of Portland High School, Julie holds a B.S. from Bentley University and MBA from Thomas College. She was named SBA STAR Award recipient in 2021 by the Maine District Office. Julie volunteers for SCORE as a co-presenter of their quarterly “How To Fund Your Business” workshop and serves as president of the City of Portland’s Portland Development Corp.
Julie says what sets GSB apart is that we are truly local – we all live, work and volunteer in the communities we serve. To Julie, Banking is Believing means seeing a customer’s dream become their reality, which is very rewarding.
