Ron Geib, President and CEO of Harleysville Savings Bank and Harleysville Savings Financial Corporation, is ready to start his term as the new PACB Chairman. He follows Past Chairman Chuck Leyh, President and CEO of Enterprise Bank. Geib’s goal as Chairman is to be a continuation of those before him as well as a building block for those to come in the future.
Geib explained, “Being Chairman is all about building on the legacy of the past. Of the most recent Chairmen, Rich Meares helped us transition to PACB President and CEO, Nick DiFrancesco, making way for Chuck Leyh to aid the Board of Directors in developing a strategic plan for the next three years. Now that we’ve identified the target, it’s time to put the strategic plan into motion. That’s what I fully intend to do.”
Geib is a huge believer in strategic planning and identifying the values of an organization. Geib’s goal as Chairman is to help members understand what their role is in helping both PACB win and the community banking industry win. He used the phrase, “The clearer the vision, the fewer the options, the fewer the questions, the easier the answers,” to describe the benefits of creating and implementing a strategic plan. With a strategic plan built for clarity and connectivity, the Board of Directors, PACB staff, and member community banks can all strive to work together toward a common goal.
