Meet our Member Spotlight for March: Kelly Carlson, Vice President, Business Development, Mid Penn Bank/Scottdale Bank & Trust.
Since 1868, Mid Penn Bank has remained committed to serving the local community and providing comprehensive financial solutions.
Originally founded in Millersburg, PA as the “Millersburg Trust Company,” Mid Penn has expanded over the years to become a full-service financial institution with multiple divisions. In 2015, Mid Penn completed its acquisition of Schuylkill County-based Miners Bank. In early 2018, Scottdale Bank & Trust was acquired, expanding Mid Penn’s footprint into western PA. First Priority Bank was added as a new division of Mid Penn Bank in July 2018, adding 4 counties in southeastern PA to Mid Penn’s footprint.
As a Business Development Officer, Kelly is responsible for contributing to the bank’s loan and deposit growth. She is also responsible for acquiring, expanding and retaining customers’ relationships and providing a superior level of customer service.
Kelly enjoys creative problem solving. She explains, “I work with a wide variety of products that help my clients with their complete cash flow cycle from accelerating their receivables, streamlining their payables, protecting their relationship from fraud and aiding with gaps in cash flow. I like collaborating with my clients and colleagues, finding the best solutions for whatever the situation and obstacles.”
What does Kelly enjoy most about her Chamber membership? She says, “I get satisfaction developing my professional network. I benefit (and my clients, too) in building relationships with Chamber members that I trust and can rely on to make the connection. It takes time to build a network but once it’s built it creates great synergy & collaboration for the Chamber and the community.”
When she’s not working, Kelly enjoys all four seasons from her home at Seven Springs. She snow skis in the winter and golfs in the summer with her husband. She also enjoys biking and hiking with her dog.
