About Webster Bank
Our heritage dates back to 1935, when 24-year-old Harold Webster Smith founded the bank with $25,000 borrowed from family and friends. Then known as First Federal Savings and Loan of Waterbury, Connecticut, our purpose was to help make homeownership a realistic dream for people, and our values centered on putting people first.
Over the years, we have expanded to become a leading regional bank in the Northeast with more than $30.4 billion in assets and 157 banking centers from greater New York City to Boston. Today, we offer the full range of financial services, delivered by almost 3,400 employees.
But while we have grown, our core values have remained unchanged. We still put people first -- acting with responsibility, respect, ethical behavior, citizenship and teamwork. We call these principles The Webster Way. They bring us together, set us apart, and create an unshakeable core that is unique to Webster.
By following The Webster Way, we ensure that we’re living up to our customers and each other.
The Webster Way®
- We take personal responsibility for meeting our customers’ needs.
- We respect the dignity of every individual.
