“Patti is only the third female in the Association’s 118-year history and the first woman to serve as Chair since 1998,” said J. Duncan Campbell III, president of PBA. “She has already made her mark with valuable leadership as Chair of the Audit, Budget, and Finance Committee.”
With a focus on responsible growth, telling a powerful pro-banking story, and spearheading PBA’s new women in banking initiative, Patti comes to leadership with a compelling vision and a history of successful ideas and industry implementation.
“I am thrilled to accept the nomination of my banking colleagues, and I look forward to working with the newly elected PBA Board of Directors, as well as our CEO, J. Duncan Campbell III, and the entire PBA team,” says Husic.
“Bankers are vital to our communities and cities, and PBA is filled with remarkable individuals who make a difference every day for our customers, our neighbors, and our economy. I look forward to telling our PBA story in every corner of our Commonwealth and sharing a contagious optimism and confidence in our nation’s financial systems and our economic recovery.”
Now serving her second term on the 22-member board of directors, Patti has a robust speaking and touring schedule throughout the state as she leads one of the strongest and most respected associations in the nation. PBA has been representing the banking industry across the Keystone State since 1895 and conducts some of the most advanced seminars, academies, and schools available to bankers anywhere in the United States.
“Patti’s unique combination of drive, leadership, and loyalty to both Centric Bank’s employees and its customers creates energy and inspires the growth and performance that Centric is known for,” says Jack Salvetti, CPA, President of S.R. Snodgrass, A.C. “Named an American Banker 2011 ‘25 Women to Watch in Banking,’ Patti strengthens the PBA platform and leads by example, inspiring men and women throughout the industry.”
“Patti exhibits great leadership and commitment to PBA, and she recently spearheaded the Association’s effort to develop a Women in Banking Peer Group—an initiative that will launch this fall,” says Campbell. “Patti highlights the interests shared by women bankers: the mentoring of emerging leaders; the networking that can only help to build stronger relationships, both personal and professional; and the professional development issues associated with being a woman in the banking industry. Thanks to her leadership, the PBA supports opportunities for all women in banking.”
