“Tom is a highly-experienced executive who combines a vast banking background, passion for our culture, and deeply-rooted leadership in south-central PA,” noted President and CEO Eugene Draganosky. “In his short time with Traditions Bank, Tom has already created long-lasting impact. This expanded role will assure that all sales areas are aligned with the strategic direction of the bank.” Mr. Sposito earned his finance degree from Penn State University and a Master of Business Administration from Lebanon Valley College. His highly-successful 36-year banking career in south central Pennsylvania has included leadership positions with Sterling Financial, PNC, Integrity and S&T.

I love the team, the culture, and the forward focus of the company,” Sposito shared. “Continued growth allows us to offer our true community banking services to more and more new clients, expand our relationship with existing clients, and further support the communities we serve.”
