South Shore Bank CEO Jim Dunphy Named Chairman of Board for Quincy Chamber of Commerce

Quincy Chamber of Commerce recently announced appointments to their Board, including Jim Dunphy's new role as Chairman.

"I've been given a great opportunity to get involved on an even deeper level with the Quincy Chamber and am looking forward to working with Tim Cahill, President & Executive Director, as well as the rest of the Board and member organizations to help cultivate a meaningful impact in this wonderful city that I get to call home," says Dunphy.

Jim Dunphy leads South Shore Bank with a philosophy of sharing success to help people and strengthen communities and is expected to carryover this same style of leadership to his new position.

He adds, "The work of the Chamber is so crucial because of this idea of shared success. We all do better when we all win, and the work the Quincy Chamber is doing to strengthen the city's economic landscape is truly remarkable. We're really seeing development before our eyes."

"Jim is the type of leader who is actively involved in the community," says Tim Cahill. "He is an incredible connector and we're fortunate to have him as our new Chair."

During Jim's tenure, South Shore Bank has doubled in assets and currently employs more than 200 people throughout the region. As a Community Bank, the Bank donates more than ten percent of its profits to local organizations and under Jim's leadership, the South Shore Bank Community Fund was created, distributing more than 500 thousand dollars to assist those struggling to pay rent and mortgages during the pandemic.
The Bank partnered with the Quincy Chamber of Commerce for the distribution of those funds.

Jim's connection to the community runs deep. He serves on the boards of various non-profit and business organizations including the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, South Shore YMCA, South Shore Workforce Development, Massasoit Community College Board of Trustees, and Leadership South Shore, a yearlong immersive learning program committed to transformative leadership which he founded. Jim was named to the Boston Business Journal's Power 50 of 2020 and was chosen as one of seven new members to the Massachusetts Bankers Association Board of Directors in 2021.
