bestofbostongold2Monday evening, July 27, 2009, found my wife and me at an event in Boston held by Banker & Tradesman, a Massachusetts banking and real estate publication.  First Wellesley was being honored as the 2009 Gold Award winner in the Bank Consultant category.  We had a great time at the event and enjoyed speaking with Tim Warren, Jr., CEO and publisher.  Tim is the fourth generation of his family to be involved in Banker & Tradesman – an incredible feat given how much has changed in banking and real estate since 1872, the year Banker & Tradesman was founded.

Tim’s been receiving an enormous amount of media attention this year about two big topics – foreclosures and home prices.  In fact, he had to decline a television appearance scheduled for last night to attend the awards ceremony.  I want to thank all of you for your support of First Wellesley this past year! Without you, this award would not have been possible. Our news release is below.


Banker & Tradesman Best of 2009 Readers’ Poll

Wellesley Hills, MA, July 27, 2009 – First Wellesley Consulting Group, Inc. has been named the Banker & Tradesman Best of 2009 Gold Award winner in the Bank Consultant category.  On Monday, July 27, 2009, First Wellesley accepted the first place award in Boston, MA, at a ceremony honoring this year’s award winners.  First Wellesley is honored and pleased to be designated the top bank consultant by Banker & Tradesman.

“We are truly honored to have been chosen by the Banker & Tradesman readers.  We thank the readers and our clients and colleagues for their confidence in us,” said James D. Jones, President/CEO, First Wellesley Consulting Group, Inc.

Banker & Tradesman, founded in 1872 and headquartered in Boston, MA, is published by the Warren Group.  The Warren Group provides comprehensive banking and real estate news and data throughout New England.

  • The ceremony honored the best providers of services in the banking and real estate professions.
  • Over 3,000 readers voted for the providers that they believe are best in numerous banking categories.
  • “This is a subjective, not objective poll. It does not measure who writes the most business, who has the most revenue or the most customers. It does measure the loyalty and satisfaction readers have with vendors. It is an opportunity for readers to speak up for those providers they believe are the best,” said Vincent Michael Valvo, Group Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Banker & Tradesman.
