Whether he’s at a chamber of commerce event or a community fundraiser, Matt Shaw’s smile will brighten your day.

“Whether I volunteer at an event, participate in fundraising, or give back with advice, I find it engaging and rewarding to help others,” said Shaw, a native of Lewiston. “A strong and bright community is only one of the building blocks that will drive more and more people to the area. There are numerous non-profit agencies in the area that are actively and consistently working towards building a strong, vibrant community and I have always supported them.”

Shaw notes that he has been privileged to working with many of these organizations and he’s witnessed how valuable they are to the community. He adds, “They sure know how to stretch a dollar. It is remarkable in what they can do.”

Shaw earned a bachelor of science degree from Saint Joseph’s College where most of his elective courses were in marketing and business ethics. Upon graduating, he held various positions with Northeast Bank, Norway Savings Bank and, then, as Director of Campaign and Marketing for the local United Way.

“When Community Credit Union opened a position that combined my commitment and admiration to our community with my interest in relationship building and I became their Business Development Officer,” said Shaw.

As a member of the Social Responsibility Committee for the Maine Credit Union League, Shaw is especially proud of his efforts with the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger.
