1. What is your ACNB story?
My unofficial beginning with ACNB Bank was the very same day my wife, myself, and family were pouring the footers for our soon-to-be home in Littlestown, PA. Having recently relocated to Adams County and putting down roots, little did I know this day would be so important – the beginnings of building a home and reporting to my first interview and subsequent start at ACNB. I began in November 2018 as a Community Banking Specialist under the direction of Lisa Miller, Manager of the McSherrystown Branch. Two years later, I was welcomed into the Credit Administration department under the guidance of Laurie Laub and Justin Peterman, starting as Credit Admin Assistant and eventually promoted to Credit Admin Specialist. As of April 4th, 2022, I now serve as Assistant Vice President, Commercial Portfolio Manager, for the York Market.
2. What do you love about working here?
The overall mission, culture, and people are the three most important aspects of what I love about working for ACNB Bank. Developing and nurturing relationships with customers is such an integral part of the roles in which I have served thus far, and working collectively with the dedicated people of this company to perpetuate this institution to greater, future successes.
3. What activities do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
Dressing up as The Bank’s mascot, Buckley, is always a joy, especially when helping to educate the youth at Alloway Creek Elementary School. It’s a great feeling to bring smiles to faces at community volunteer events while having the appearance of an oversized rodent.
4. Why should people bank at a community bank?
I could get into the nitty-gritty specifics such as lower fees/etc., but that lies nowhere near the heart of why people should bank at a community bank. The very heart of community banking is just that – community. Apart from the personalized attention and superior assistance a customer receives while paired with a full menu of easy-to-use services, a community bank cares for its surrounding areas and treats its people as far more than just a number or statistic. As a patron of a community bank, you are treated kindly with relationship-based banking as opposed to the multitude of automated, “mega-bank” levels of disservice and lack of consideration.
5. What are some of your favorite local activities or restaurants?
There’s a better than even chance you will find me at Quail Valley Golf Club giving the impression I’m almost half decent at the sport. Apart from the occasional lucky stroke, my wife frequently mops the floor with me in expert fashion. In addition, I relish cooking and hosting friends and family for all things hospitable. As an individual who grew up in the culinary world to eventually practice professionally, I experience few greater joys in life than preparing a meal for another.
