We only employ the best of the best in banking, and we want you, our current and potential partners and clients, to know them as more than just Encore employees. We want you to know them as people you can turn to in times of need, whether it be personal or professional. In this week’s team member highlight, we sat down with Karyn Neely to discuss her and her role here at Encore Bank.
VP – Post Closing Review & Imaging Manager since July 2021.
I primarily manage the Post Closing Review Team. We monitor collateral and financial exceptions requirements for commercial lending and maintain the electronic file cabinets for commercial lending and Concierge Banking. I also serve as the liaison for our appraisal partners of Commercial Lending.
I was recruited by Phillip Jett in 2019, and listening to the story of the kind of bank the management team wanted Encore to be just blew me away.
I think banking chose me because I have worked in the banking industry since graduating from high school. I went on to achieve my B.A. in Finance with an emphasis in Real Estate. I have always been a service-oriented person, I like helping people and being part of a team.
Encore is different than any other place I have ever worked before. It is professional, but also fun and laid back, like a family environment.
From the executive management team down, the expertise and dedication of the Encore Team make this bank special. We listen to one another, and we all learn together.
Digital technology is the biggest change and Encore will be ready.
My parents were hard working people who taught me to be a respectable, productive and responsible person.
I spend a lot of time with my family and friends. I also enjoy decorating my home and making crafty things, like jewelry and sewing.
I am ready to get back out there and travel a bit. Anywhere.
Maybe California. That would make us coast to coast.
I think it means listening to our customers and providing them innovative products and services they want and need, and we service them in a manner that positively impacts them so personally that they are confident Encore is the right bank for them. Our people will make sure this experience happens.
