Dianne Mercier, People’s United Bank New Hampshire president, has enjoyed a remarkable career in banking by anyone’s standards. At a time when women may question a career in banking, Dianne, who started as a teller in 1985, sees only opportunity. “I feel fortunate to work for a company like People’s United, where we are encouraged and supported to develop deep roots within our community,” she says. “This commitment goes well beyond the requirements of a financial institution — it’s in our DNA. A great example of this is our Women in Leadership program, which promotes diversity, inclusion and volunteerism at the bank through regional chapters and activities.” Among her many awards and honors, Dianne was named the 2017 Citizen of the Year by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
