HARRISBURG – Brett D. Fulk, president and chief executive officer of Riverview Financial Corp., the holding company of Riverview Bank, announces the appointment of Ginger G. Kunkel as senior executive vice president and chief operating officer of the company and the bank.
Kunkel joined the company in 2014. Prior to her appointment as chief operating officer, she previously served as executive vice president and chief banking officer, which included oversight of retail banking, trust and wealth management and marketing.
She has worked in the banking industry in central and eastern Pennsylvania since 1990, with extensive knowledge in commercial lending, retail banking and operations.
Kunkel is a graduate of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking and the Wharton Graduate School Leadership Program.
She currently serves as a board member and committee member on numerous community service organizations located in Schuylkill and Berks counties.
In conjunction with the corporate realignment of naming a chief operating officer to the level of executive management, Scott A. Seasock, chief financial officer of the company and the bank, was elevated to title of senior executive vice president from executive vice president.
“We are extremely fortunate to have a deep talent pool throughout our company, and I am pleased to be able to promote from within two of our valued employees to the level of executive management,” stated Fulk.
“Ms. Kunkel continues to be an integral part of the success and growth of our company and was instrumental in the recent merger with CBT Financial Corp, which increased our size and scope to a level and which afforded us the opportunity to be listed on the Nasdaq Global Market.”
“The board is confident in her proven abilities and knowledge and is convinced naming her to this new role will assist us in continuing to improve shareholder value and customer service in the communities we serve,” concluded Fulk.
