I’m positive that she’ll thrive in her position at RCB.”

“Everyone at RCB has been very warm, inviting and helpful throughout my first few weeks,” Amira noted. “I have started to get involved with underwriting business loans and lines of credits, in addition to commercial real estate loans. I’m really enjoying getting to know our customers in the community and getting a chance to help them grow their businesses, and dreams, through additional liquidity provided by RCB.”

Amira was born in Bosnia and came to the United States when she was eight years old. She currently lives in Lynnfield with her husband, two young sons, and a male dog.
