Welcome to Bristol County Savings Bank's newest office located in the Rodman Candleworks Building in New Bedford's Downtown Historic District.

My name is Nancy Cabral; I am proud to be a part of the Bristol County Savings Bank team and especially excited to be working back in the downtown community. I started my career in banking over 32 years ago and worked in this very office when it was Compass Bank.

I am a dedicated professional that believes in exceptional customer service and giving back to the community. I am a board member at the New Bedford Art Museum, DNB, INC, Advisory Member for the Academy of Finance at NBHS and I enjoy volunteering for Junior Achievement.

Stop by and meet the team, we would love to show you the wonderful renovations to this beautiful historic building.
