ORLEANS – One of the most respected members of the Cape Cod banking community will retire after 50 years on the job.

The Cape Cod Five announced on Tuesday that David Willard, the bank’s director of community relations, will step down at the end of December.

He started with the Cape Cod Five in 1967 as a branch manager in Orleans. Willard has held his current position for the past 30 years.

“It has been my great privilege and honor to work for an institution that values its relationships with its customer and is deeply committed to the community,” said Willard in a statement issued by the bank.

Willard will be honored for his half-century of service during the Cape Cod Five’s annual Community Commitment meeting.

Bank President Dorothy Savarese praised Willard for his decades of work.

“David’s role in assisting the bank in the execution of its Community Commitment has been invaluable. His contributions to the nonprofit community has been vast and his consistent good cheer and positive outlook have made him a great asset to our organization,” she said.

Willard will formally retire at the end of the year.
