Suman is President’s Award winner at The Village Bank

Newton resident Lisa Suman, head teller at The Village Bank branch in Waban, was recently named the 2013 recipient of the Bank’s prestigious President’s Award.

Announcement of the award was made by Kenneth C. Brennan, president and CEO.

The annual employee award is based on a number of criteria, including professionalism, attitude, commitment, and interpersonal skills.

Suman joined The Village Bank in 2005 as a teller at the Waban branch, with past experience as a human resources manager for the former Filene’s department stores.
Today, as head teller in Waban, she also serves as customer service representative when needed.

“Lisa is known as a dependable team player,” said Brennan. “She is a positive role model with a wonderful attitude, in any circumstance she encounters.”

Brennan added that Suman has also personally trained scores of tellers over the past five years, turning the Waban branch into a de facto training ground for new employees who later go on to a variety of positions at one of the Bank’s six other branch locations.

Suman is also an active “Village Volunteer,” representing the Bank at activities and events including Newton Serves, Wally’s Road Race, Paddy’s Road Race, Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s Hope Walks and Waban and Highlands Day in the villages.

“Lisa clearly personifies the meaning of The Village Bank’s Pledge to its customers, to her colleagues, and to our community,” Brennan said.
