Diane Witherrite, most recently the bank’s Joseph Branch manager, has been promoted to business development officer for Wallowa, Union​,​ and Baker counties. Her tenure with Community Bank has spanned 26 years. Her wide array of banking knowledge will allow her to work with lenders and branch staff to deepen and strengthen customer relationships throughout the three count​ies.​ She will also continue to work with small business loan customers in Wallowa County as she does today.

Kate Shelton has been promoted to branch manager of the Joseph Branch. She has been employed at Community Bank nearly seven years, most recently serving as the customer service manager.

The program develops high-performing bank employees​ and prepares them for​ a position​ in bank management.

“Both Diane and Kate are committed to the long-term success of our customers,” stated Community Bank President and CEO Tom Moran. “These promotions strengthen our very talented Joseph​ team,​ and allow Diane specifically to share her 25​-plus years of banking experience with a broader group ​of ​customers and employees.”
