Creative agency will leverage financing to fund its entrepreneurial vision, upgrade technology and design collaboration spaces in Boston and Philadelphia
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., February 22, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cambridge Savings Bank (CSB), a full-service mutual bank with a customer-first approach and over $6 billion in assets, today announced that it is supporting Allen & Gerritsen (A&G) in its effort to reimagine its work environment with a $1 million equipment line of credit. Creative and entrepreneurial in nature, Allen & Gerritsen is an independent agency specializing in creative communications, customer experience (CX), public relations and media and analytics.

Rob and his team took a can-do approach, identifying the right funding to support A&G’s ‘Great Reimagination.’”
