Tim Deshaies Honored with Florence Bank’s 2023 Community Support Award

Please join us in congratulating Tim Deshaies, our director of Retail Operations, who was honored at our annual meeting with the 2023 Community Support Award for his activism with for- and nonprofits in the region.
The Community Support Award was established by the bank in 1997 as a means of formally recognizing employees who are active in the community and give their personal and professional time to local nonprofit organizations.
Each year, the award recipient can select an organization of his/her choice, and the bank will donate $500 to that organization. Tim lives in Holyoke, and he has chosen The Therapeutic Equestrian Center, citing the incredible work the organization does with horse-assisted therapy for people in the community.
Tim joined Florence Bank in 2007. He holds a master’s in business administration from Western New England University.
He is very active in the community and currently holds these positions: treasurer of The Therapeutic Equestrian Center and The Wistariahurst Foundation; vice president of Black Horse Trust; and director of Mansir Trust.
“We are pleased to shine a spotlight on Tim because we are proud of all the important work he does in the community,” said Matt Garrity, president and CEO of Florence Bank. “Tim well deserves the Community Support Award.”
