Summit Celebrates Employee Anniversaries

Summit Financial Group, Inc. would like to recognize six employees celebrating milestone anniversaries in 2016. 

Celebrating 30 years of service are Gloria George, Sharon Swick, and Scott Jennings.

Gloria George, Customer Service Teller at the Moorefield office, began her career at then South Branch Valley National Bank in June of 1986.  Gloria began working at the drive-up window, then moved to a lobby window, and eventually became the “vault teller”.  Gloria enjoys working with her coworkers and the public and reflects upon the changes that have occurred in her 30 year tenure.  When she began her job, all processing was done by hand.  Eventually the teller line received one computer which was shared, and now each station has its own computer and scanner.  By the time Gloria began her job, most of the devastating damage from the 1985 flood had been cleaned and repaired.  However, she did prepare for and clean up after the two floods of 1996.  She recalls pulling multiple coin rolls apart to dry. 

Gloria is married to Homer George and has three children, Nicholas Wolfe, Sabrina Wolfe, and Eathan George. She has one step-son, Kyle George.  Gloria enjoys walking and attending flea markets and auctions. 

 

Sharon Swick, Customer Service Teller at the Petersburg office, began her career at then Potomac Valley Bank in August of 1986.  She was hired part-time to work the drive-up window and later became full-time.  Sharon is an avid dog lover.  She recalls an out-of-state client coming through her window with a dog many years ago.  The customer told Sharon that in their home town, banks often hand out dog treats.  Sharon thought to herself, “I can do that” and so she began distributing dog treats to clients with dogs.  Sharon learns the names of each pet and enjoys building relationships with her clients in this way. 

Sharon played basketball in high school and was inducted into the Petersburg High School Hall of Fame in 2012.  She enjoys watching sports, especially local high school sports.  She is known as the “pet nanny” in her neighborhood for taking care of pets when her neighbors are out of town, and is a devoted collector of Mickey and Minnie Mouse items. Sharon and her husband, Roger, will be celebrating another anniversary in June; their 25-year wedding anniversary.   

 

Scott Jennings, Chief Operating Officer at Summit’s corporate headquarters, began his career with then South Branch Valley National Bank in July 1986 as the Assistant Branch Manager for the new Franklin branch. When Scott was hired, it was noted that his resume showed he had computer experience.  Therefore, Scott was sent to Canton, Ohio, to be trained on programming the bank’s first automated teller machine (ATM).  The Franklin office was not yet constructed so while waiting for the bank to be built, Scott was learning many functions within the bank including bookkeeping and processing.  Scott worked in the Franklin branch for three months and then was asked to transfer to Moorefield to work with computers and system conversions, as well as continued work on the ATM.  Scott later became Loan Officer, Chief Credit Officer, and Loan Review Officer. Scott continued to work with computers, implementing the first computerized loan system.  Scott eventually focused primarily on the computer area and was instrumental in implementing the mergers and acquisitions which makes Summit what it is today.  Scott enjoys the every-day challenges that his job brings. 

Scott recalls several memorable moments from his time at Summit, including hearing the news of the planes crashing into the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001, and the preparation and clean-up from two floods in 1996. 

The first three computers that the company purchased cost $8,000.  Scott still keeps an old laptop which belonged to Charlie Maddy, now the President and CEO of Summit.  Scott fondly recollects a time when the internet was being introduced so he and Charlie planned to test it.  Scott purchased a modem and connected the computer, attempting to open a map. The map took 30 minutes to load and he recalls them saying, “this internet thing is just not going to work”. 

Scott has two sons, Eric and Chris, and three granddaughters.   

 

Celebrating 25 years of service is Danyl Freeman, Chief Human Resources Officer.  Danyl recalls feeling “blessed by God” to receive an interview immediately upon graduating college for an Internal Auditor position at then South Branch Valley National Bank. She spent 5 years in the Audit Department, learning all areas of the bank.  In 1997, Danyl began handling Human Resources duties and also worked in the Retail and Bookkeeping departments (now called the Item Processing Department) until the merger with Potomac Valley Bank in 2000.  In 2000, Danyl became the Director of Human Resources and focused solely on personnel.

When asked what she likes most about her job, Danyl states that she loves working with people and knowing them not as a number; but as a face, a name, and a life.  She enjoys watching someone start at an entry-level position and grow to an officer of the company. 

Danyl speaks fondly of the recent events outside of the office such as the “Service Beyond Expectations” event schedule and the Nasdaq bell-ringing in New York City.  She warmly recalls past events such as Christmas parties, retirement parties, and recognitions of milestone employee anniversaries.

Danyl resides with her husband, Rick, and has two children, Aaron and Reagan.  She is active in her church, Oak Grove United Methodist Church.  Danyl enjoys being active at McCoy Grand Theater where she loves to make people laugh.   

 

Celebrating 20 years of service are Tom Kimble and Nancy Cook. 

Tom Kimble, Loan Officer at the Petersburg office, began working for then South Branch Valley National Bank in December 1996 as the Branch Manager in Franklin.  This was not, however, Tom’s first job.  He recalls meeting his wife, Nancy, while she was stationed at the Sugar Grove Naval Base.  They were married and when Nancy was transferred to Germany, Tom moved with her and worked in Accounting for the government.  When Nancy was transferred back to the United States, Tom worked in Maryland hospitals in the field of Accounting and eventually became the Chief Financial Officer for two hospitals.  Tom and Nancy moved back to the family farm in 1996 and Tom became the Branch Manager at the Franklin office of South Branch Valley National Bank.  In 2009 Tom transferred to Moorefield, focusing solely on lending.  In 2010 he transferred to the Petersburg office of Summit Community Bank.

When asked what Tom likes most about his job, he enjoys helping people achieve their dreams and becoming a homeowner.  He also fondly recalls past fun events such as dressing in costume for Groundhog Day and driving the John Deere tractor to pull Summit Community Bank floats in local parades. 

Tom continues to reside on the farm with his wife, Nancy, where they run a cow/calf operation and raise feeder steers.  Tom enjoys hunting in Colorado each fall to hunt elk and mule deer.  Tom and Nancy have two children, Jennifer and Matt.  Jenny graduated from West Virginia University and works for Arnett Carbis Toothman LLP in Morgantown.  Matt graduated from WVU and is a Naval Officer stationed in Albany NY. 

 

Nancy Cook, Customer Service Representative at the Petersburg office, began her career with then Potomac Valley Bank in February 1996.  She enjoys working with people; problem-solving and gaining friendships through her work.  Nancy recalls her favorite memory as when the new bank building was opened in 2004, “My most memorable day was the first day in our new building on 90 South Grove Street in Petersburg. The visually beautiful design, the spacious lobby, the functional workplaces—all enhanced by attention to detail. The excitement was contagious; the response by our customers was obvious from their facial expressions seeing their new bank for the first time. A beautiful workplace; an unforgettable day.”  Nancy enjoys canning, gardening, growing flowers, and spending time with her grandchildren. Nancy stated, “My favorite title is Grandma”.  Nancy resides with her husband, Richard, and has three sons and three wonderful daughters-in-law.
