Eastern Bank and Viva Lawrence:

D14_Bob Rivers y Jayuring last week’s 5th Annual El Mundo Hispanic Heritage Breakfast, there were several important awards handed out. One of them was for Corporate Partner of the Year, which was received by Eastern Bank President and Chief Operating Officer, Bob Rivers.

The award is given to a corporate partner that has demonstrated their commitment to the Latino community through their presence and support for not only El Mundo initiatives but throughout the community as well.

Eastern Bank’s strong support of the VIVA LAWRENCE initiative has enabled El Mundo to forge an unprecedented collaboration with Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera’s administration to help raise the collective spirit and positive visibility of this community.

Eastern Bank was also the first bank to have opened the city’s first new retail banking office in 23 years, when it did so three years ago and has recently opened its second branch on Common Street in downtown Lawrence.
