Cambridge Bancorp in Massachusetts has added a specialist in retail real estate to its board.
Donald Briggs will join the boards of the $1.4 billion-asset company and its banking unit, Cambridge Trust Company, the parent company said Monday. Briggs is senior vice president of development for the Federal Realty Investment Trust, a REIT that specializes in retail real estate. Briggs leads the trust's development and redevelopment projects.
"[Briggs'] extensive experience working with local real estate developments and familiarity with the greater Boston market will make him a valuable contributor to the board," said Cambridge President and Chief Executive Joseph Roller in a press release. "Don's insights and perspectives will help Cambridge Trust better serve the Bank's growing commercial real estate sector."
The Cambridge bank has 14 branches in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
