Howard Bank was selected as a “Top Team” as part of American Banker newspaper’s 2020 Most Powerful Women program.
The team recognized by American Banker includes: Mary Ann Scully, CEO and chairwoman; Jennifer “Jenny” Scully, senior vice president, director of commercial banking administration; Erica Starr, senior vice president, director of marketing; Deborah “Debbie” L. Matz, senior vice president, director of treasury management services; Katie Sank, vice president, director of project management; Chandra Klein, vice president, director of branch distribution, and Katherine Koustenis, vice president, chief compliance officer.
The program highlights only five teams from banks across the country.
American Banker’s judges reviewed Howard Bank’s performance and growth, but more importantly, they focused on women in senior positions at the bank, their role and impact in guiding the institution, and the bank’s community leadership of diversity, equity and inclusion. Honorees were not only recognized specifically for their efforts to advance the next wave of female leaders; the lists are a reflection of the industry as it evolves, as can be seen in the many new entrants this year.
