Cornerstone Bank Promotes Two Employees to Associate Vice President
SOUTHBRIDGE, Mass. – Cornerstone Bank, a community bank with 12 locations throughout central Massachusetts, has recently promoted Kerri Lee to Associate Vice President, Loan Production Manager, and Katelyn Krikorian to Associate Vice President, Operations Manager. Both have more than 15 years of experience in banking and lending.
Lee, a resident of Holland, joined Southbridge Savings Bank in November of 2013 as a Senior Loan Processor. When Southbridge Savings Bank and SpencerBANK merged to form Cornerstone Bank in 2016, she held a Team Lead position before becoming Loan Production Manager. She has worked closely with the Loan Production and Operations teams to facilitate home loan closings that meet customer expectations.
“My focus is and always has been the customers and their experience with us,” said Lee. “My time with Cornerstone Bank has allowed me to learn and grow in the mortgage lending industry. I am excited to see what I can do in this new role to continue to make our customers happy.”
Katelyn Krikorian, a resident of Southbridge, started as an Operations Clerk in 2004 and worked her way up to Team Leader, then to Assistant Operations Manager and finally to Operations Manager. Krikorian has also held the Chairman position with the ARC Committee and was afforded the opportunity to be involved in a variety of fundraisers benefiting the community.
“I am thankful for the guidance I’ve had along the way, allowing me to mature in my roles and leading me to all the opportunities Cornerstone Bank has given me,” said Krikorian. “I look forward to being a part of Cornerstone’s future, continuing to help not only our customers but the people of our communities as well.”
“We’re very proud to have Kerri and Katelyn on our team,” said Todd Tallman, CEO of Cornerstone Bank. “These are the people that are the backbone of Cornerstone Bank and they deserve their success.”
