SOUDERTON, Pa., July 31, 2017 – Univest Bank and Trust Co. announced the promotion of Thomas J. Jordan, IV as market president of the Lancaster region. In this role, Jordan is responsible for driving Univest’s growth strategy for both the consumer and commercial banking teams with the support of Dale Hershey, senior vice president and director of Agricultural Lending in Lancaster; Bryan Moyer, senior vice president and director of Commercial Lending in Lancaster; and Jen Miller, vice president and director of Consumer Banking in Lancaster.
Jordan joined Univest in May 2016 as executive vice president, commercial banking with more than 27 years of experience in the financial services industry. For the last year, he’s worked out of Univest’s headquarters in Souderton, Montgomery County on a strategic project to help Univest further integrate and streamline its commercial banking systems and operations following the acquisitions of Valley Green Bank in January 2015 and Fox Chase Bank in July 2016. Prior to joining Univest, he was a regional president at National Penn Bank where he led the consumer and commercial banking operations in Lancaster.
“Tom has been an asset to Univest as we continue to grow and enhance our banking solutions, processes and operations,” said Mike Keim, president of Univest Bank and Trust Co. “Tom’s true passion, however, is working directly with individuals and businesses in his hometown to ensure they have the right financial solutions to achieve their financial dreams. Univest’s significant growth, in just over a year in Lancaster, created the opportunity for Univest to establish this new role. Tom’s leadership will undoubtedly help Univest continue its expansion and deliver exceptional service to our growing customer base in the communities we serve throughout Lancaster.”
Since entering the market in May 2016 through the hiring of a 15-person team of commercial lenders, administrators, and consumer banking employees, the staff has doubled and Univest has invested in developing an immediate physical presence throughout the region. Univest now employs over 30 people in the Lancaster community between its Greenfield Corporate Center and three financial centers located in Willow Street, Strasburg and Brownstown. In the months ahead, Jordan will be working on opening Univest’s fourth location in Georgetown and a fifth location in Intercourse, which is scheduled to open in 2018.
In addition to his work at Univest, Jordan is a member of the Risk Management Association (RMA) and PA Bankers Association, where he is on the rural and agricultural advisory committee. Jordan volunteers for several local organizations including LCBC Church, Schreiber Pediatric Center, and Lancaster Early Education Center. Jordan majored in business and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Millersville University. He currently resides in Lancaster with his wife and two children.
