Centric Bank’s strategy of Shattering Expectations represents Husic’s reimagination of the changing face of banking.
“We are supporting and growing the next generation of strong women in banking and much of that comes from Patti’s vision for Centric Bank, as well as her passion for our industry. Not to mention, five of our Millennial Advisory committee members are our female millennial employees,” says Leslie Meck, SVP, Chief Retail Officer. “It is a privilege to be part of an organization that recognizes, rewards, and challenges women to invest in themselves and their careers. With Patti’s vision, passion, coaching, and leadership, we are laying the foundation for aspirational women to advance their careers and to have opportunities to recognize their full potential.”
“Understanding Centric Bank’s culture of inclusion for high-achieving women, our charge is to seek ways to advocate and nurture young female reports. Across business lines, Centric Bank women are providing innovative solutions with immediate, direct impact on the bank’s bottom line and contributing to our 36% loan growth and 69% increase in non-interest income. Making a difference is what drives us, and I look forward to investing in our next generation of young women by strengthening the talent pool and being a vital community and board resource,” says Michele Light, SVP, Market Leader.
