“I am very pleased to recognize these individuals for their dedication and commitment to FSB, our customers and our communities. They exemplify the spirit of community banking and lead by example each and every day,” commented Ron Magoon, President & CEO.
Bozak joined FSB in 2016 as a Senior VP and CFO. Since that time, he has assumed responsibility for the Finance, Retail, Human Resources, Operations and Risk Management departments of the bank. Bozak has over 17 years of banking experience and holds an MBA in international business and is a CPA. He is also a recent graduate of the ABA Stonier Graduate School of Banking.
Magoon continued, “Brian came to FSB having considerable community banking experience, which allowed him to immediately begin contributing to our organization in a meaningful way.”
Legier joined FSB in 2015 as a Commercial Loan Officer and has over 18 years of experience in this area. Further, he is a graduate of The Wharton School’s business leadership program as well as the ABA Stonier Graduate School of Banking.
“Greg is a consistent high performer who we rely on to help coach and mentor those with less experience. He is great at developing relationships and quickly becomes a valued resource to his customers,” noted Magoon.
Continued Magoon, “I am also happy to recognize Jon and Ken for their continued development as commercial lending officers at FSB. They both have retail banking backgrounds, so building relationships and helping customers achieve their goals is something that comes naturally to them.” Magoon added, “Jon and Ken have spent years in the Lakes Region Community giving back in a number of different ways; they epitomize true community bankers.”
Next, Buker started with FSB in 2010 and has been a steady force on the retail side of the bank. She has 15 years of retail banking experience and is a graduate of the Northern New England School of Banking and New England School for Financial Studies at Babson College.
“Julie has strong administrative and operational skills, which have served FSB well during our most recent expansion into the Merrimack and Goffstown markets,” said Magoon. “She understands the value of community banking and works hard to ensure our customers see the difference.”
