“Our Santander Select service is designed to enhance our customers’ experience,” said Mike Bruno, region president for Northern New England. “Consumers today are focused on maximizing value and ensuring that they’re making the most of their money. We believe our customers will find the Santander Select program to be an extremely attractive option.”

In addition, customers receive the Santander Select World Debit MasterCard® which includes perks such waived fees for use of any financial institution’s ATMs around the world, concierge service, trip insurance and priority access to airport lounges.
Customers are invited to meet with a specially-trained personal banker at a Santander Select branch.
