The Guild for Human Services recently elected Robert Sousa of Marlborough to its Board of Trustees. Sousa is an Assistant Vice President, Asset Liability Analyst at Middlesex Savings Bank. He earned his Bachelor's of Accounting from the University of South Florida and his Master of Science in Finance from Boston College. He is currently a Level III candidate for the Charted Financial Analyst (CFA) Designation.

In his current role, Sousa assists in driving balance sheet strategy for the bank through financial modeling and reporting across various business and product lines including loans, deposits, borrowings, and investments. Prior to his role with Middlesex Bank, Robert worked in commercial lending at Main Street Bank where he led a small team of Credit Analysts. Sousa also currently serves as Board Treasurer of Employment Options whose mission is to empower individuals and families in mental health recovery to thrive in their communities.

Growing up, he had a family friend who raised a child with an intellectual disability, which gave him an appreciation for the type of services and support needed to help people with intellectual disabilities achieve their full potential. “My hope is that I can leverage my background and experience in finance to help continue to drive financial success and growth at The Guild so it may continue to serve its students and residents in the best way possible,” said Sousa.

“I am pleased to welcome Robert as a new Board member,” said Thomas P. Corcoran, Chair of The Guild’s Board of Trustees. “His experience in a range of financial disciplines will be a tremendous asset to The Guild’s mission of empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead high-quality lives and share meaningful connections with community and family.”
