Rockland Trust opens first office in RI

Providence, RI – Massachusetts-based Rockland Trust bank has opened its first office in Rhode Island. It's located in the GTECH Center and specializes in commercial lending and wealth management.

Rockland Trust President and CEO Christopher Oddleifson says he's bullish on the Ocean State. "We think actually it's a great market despite some of the headlines sometimes that suggest that the unemployment's too high," he says. "We think there's a lot of good business there."

Rockland Trust currently has $200 million invested in Rhode Island businesses and has committed to doubling that amount over the next two years.
