ERIEBANK Promotes Fort and Petruso


Meadville, PA – June 1, 2019
David Zimmer, President of ERIEBANK, is pleased to announce the promotion of Concetta Fort to Community Office Manager and Polly Petruso to Community Office Assistant Manager of the ERIEBANK office located at 885 Park Avenue in Meadville.
In this new role, Ms. Fort is responsible for developing and managing customer relationships and ensuring exceptional experiences. Ms. Petruso will be assisting Ms. Fort with the management of the office, while enhancing customer relationships by providing the best financial solutions for their needs.

Her fifty years of banking knowledge will continue to support and guide her customers through financial decisions and transactions.
“The team at our downtown Meadville office have always worked together to provide the best experience for our customers,” Mr. Zimmer said. “We’ve been fortunate to have Mary’s excellent leadership and look forward to Concetta and Polly building on that foundation to further support our customers and community.”
In regard to her new part-time role, Ms. Taormina stated, “Our customers and community will continue to be of utmost importance to me.  I look forward to continue to serve as a leader in the Meadville market.”
