FRANKLIN, NH (January 8, 2018) – Franklin Savings Bank announced today the recent promotions of Sarah E.M. Stanley to Community Relations & CRA Officer, Ulrike Smith to Quality Control & HMDA Manager, Dawn Phelps to AVP, Retail Lending Officer & Team Leader, and Kimberly Bliss to Commercial Lending Assistant.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Sarah, Ulrike, Dawn and Kim to advance further within their respective roles at the bank,” said Ron Magoon, President & CEO.  “As we continue to expand our lending capabilities it became apparent that we needed to add additional support for home mortgage disclosure act reporting, commercial credit analysis, along with expanded oversight of data collection for community reinvestment act compliance.”

In her new role, Stanley will continue her community relations efforts as well as administering all aspects of the bank’s Community Reinvestment Act Compliance Program.  She joined FSB in 1998 in the marketing department where she advanced into a few positions until she transitioned into the role of Community Relations Officer in 2015.

Smith will assume the responsibilities of Quality Control and HMDA Manager where she will have oversight of the administration and management of all commercial and residential lending quality control compliance, along with the administration and management of all Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) compliance. She joined FSB in 2014 as Loan Operations Manager, then transitioned to Residential/Consumer Project Manager in 2017.

In her role as AVP, Retail Lending Officer & Team Leader, Phelps will oversee the strategic and new business development responsibilities for the residential lending department and will manage the residential lenders.  Phelps started with FSB in 2003 as a Mortgage Loan Originator.  In 2004, she was promoted to Mortgage Loan Officer, then to AVP, Retail Lending Officer in 2013.  She will report to Jim Dubois, SVP, Senior Loan Officer.

Bliss joined FSB in January 2017 as a Commercial Lending Assistant in the commercial lending department. As the bank continues to experience growth in its commercial lending division, Bliss will develop and enhance her skills in credit analysis under the tutelage of Debbie Clapp, AVP, Senior Credit Analyst.
