Franklin Savings Bank announced today the promotions of Heather Jewell to Assistant Branch Manager of the bank’s Tilton office, as well as Janet Haines to VP, Loan Administration & Operations Officer.

In her new role, Jewell will focus on coaching and supporting sales, service and operational initiatives for her team.  She joined FSB in March 2007 as a personal banker and was later promoted to senior personal banker.  Before joining the bank Jewell spent a few years in the retail industry.

Jewell has an Associate’s degree in interior design from Mount Ida College in Newton, Mass., and attended Bridgewater State College located in Bridgewater, Mass. where she studied business.  She resides in Northfield, N.H. with her husband and two daughters.

“Heather has been an integral member of our retail group since she joined us nine years ago,” commented Ron Magoon, President & CEO.  “Her professionalism, leadership and commitment to providing our customers with exemplary customer service will be critical in leading continued growth at our Tilton location.”

Next, Haines will have oversight of the bank’s loan operations to include administration, processing, servicing, underwriting, collections and loan-related systems.  She brings a tremendous amount of experience in this area having worked in similar roles at other banks such as the former Indian Head Bank.  Haines joined FSB in February 2014 as VP, Commercial Loan Officer in the commercial lending group.

Magoon continued: “Janet’s extensive background in both loan operations and commercial lending make her the ideal candidate for this newly created position within our operations area.  We are excited to have her assume this new challenge and are confident that she will do well for us in this area.”

Haines holds a Bachelor of Science degree in management from Rivier University in Nashua, N.H.  A resident of Epsom, she has a passion for the arts and often volunteers her time with the Capitol Center for the Performing Arts and Concord Community Music School.
