Three local Wilson Bank & Trust employees are among the 40 graduates of the 2017 Southeastern School of Consumer Credit held at TBA Barrett Training Center.
The WB&T staff members who received diplomas were Trey Geisenhoffer, branch manager at the Tennessee Boulevard office; John Presley, assistant manager at the Wal-Mart office; and mortgage lender Justin Martin from the main office on West Main Street.
The Southeastern School of Consumer Credit organized by the Tennessee Bankers Association is an intermediate-level, one-week program featuring more than 28 hours of classroom instruction through 13 modules in five-course clusters that provide specialized but well-rounded training in consumer banking.
"We are glad to offer our management team training that will help them provide the highest levels of service to our customers," WB&T Regional President Scott Jasper said. "We are proud of Trey's commitment to his career and to the community."
Bankers attending the school receive 30 hours of CPE credit. The school is sponsored by the Tennessee Bankers Association, in cooperation with the Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana bankers associations.
"The banking industry continues to change at a rapid rate, both from technology and ever-changing regulations that banks must navigate," said Colin Barrett, president of the Tennessee Bankers Association. "Our Southeastern School of Consumer Credit provides the kind of high-level training that our graduates can take back to their banks, helping not only themselves but also others who they manage or work with."
