First Federal Community Bank, announced today the impending retirement of Sally O’Donnell Senior Vice President, Retail Banking effective December 31, 2018. Sally joined the bank in April 2003 and has been a part of helping the bank grow from 3 to 7 full-service banking offices. “Since joining the First Federal team, Sally has been an indispensable champion and has played a significant part in helping First Federal grow to the incredible bank it is today” said Trent Troyer, President & CEO. “She has been one of the most dedicated, diligent, and committed officers I have ever worked with and it is a very bittersweet time in the life of an organization to see a star finish their career journey” said Troyer. After a stellar 45 year banking career, she is going out on top as First Federal just finished out its best year ever and recently opened an office in Sally’s hometown of Uhrichsville, Ohio where her career began.
When asked to reflect on her time at First Federal, Sally stated that “it is hard to say what I have enjoyed most about working at First Fed. When I made the decision to accept the position, I was excited that I would once again be working in a community bank, continuing to work with and helping folks that I knew well and spending more time with family because my drive time was greatly reduced. I have been blessed by the privilege of working with, and making lifelong friends and we are already making plans to get together regularly. An accomplishment that I am most proud of is the teamwork between the offices that are led by a great group of managers who go above and beyond anything that I have asked of them, which is proven by the feedback I receive from our customers. I have been a part of the growth of First Federal, starting with 3 offices in Tuscarawas County 15 years ago, to the now 7 offices in Tuscarawas and Holmes Counties. The grand opening for our most recent office in Uhrichsville was held on November 5th and I am so excited by the reception we have received from the Twin Cities which is near and dear to my heart! As I look forward to retirement, I am so grateful for my time as a part of the First Federal Community Bank team! I am looking forward to doing some traveling, spending time with family and friends and not worrying about meetings, schedules, and being somewhere at a specific time!”
