Adams Bank VP Retires After 37 Years

Allyn Basel

ADAMS, Mass. — Allyn Basel, senior vice president of Adams Community Bank, retired after 37 years with the institution.  
Basel began her banking career in 1974 at what was then Adams Co-Operative Bank after graduating from the former North Adams State College with a bachelor of science degree.

She started as a teller for the bank's Park Street branch in Adams and was promoted to customer service representative shortly afterward. From there, she moved into a variety of roles and was one of the bank's senior officers responsible for retail operations, information technology, compliance and bank security administration.

In 1996, she was promoted to vice president of the institution — a position she held until being promoted to senior vice president in 2011, the same year Adams Co-Operative and South Adams Savings merged into Adams Community Bank.

"Allyn has been the epitome of a dedicated employee," said Joseph F. Truskowski Jr., president of Adams Community Bank. "Her priority has always been our bank and our customers — no matter what needed to be done, it was always accomplished impeccably with the highest attention to detail."

Basel has been actively involved with the Northern Berkshire United Way as well as volunteering for many other Northern Berkshire community organizations. Upon her retirement, she intends to spend more time with her family.
