Chairman's Message

Webster has long believed in the importance of sound and effective corporate governance. Over the years we have forged an explicit link between our corporate culture and corporate governance by identifying our core values, communicating them and living them every day.

There must be no gap between our values and actual behavior. There can be no difference between values and how employees think and deal with each other and customers, their communities and even their competitors. Our values must be lived in the ways directors govern and managers manage.

At Webster we have a few simple but vital values we call the ”Webster Way”. They form the unshakeable core at Webster which gives rise to unlimited opportunity. Our values are the context in which we compete, the principles by which we govern.

The Webster Way

We take personal responsibility

for meeting our customers' needs.

We respect the dignity

of every individual.

We earn trust

through ethical behavior.

We earn people’s confidence

through ethical behavior.

We give of ourselves

in the communities we serve.

We work together

to achieve outstanding results.

James C. Smith, Chairman & CEO
