C&N Announces Strategic Changes to Pursue Continued Growth
WELLSBORO, PA – C&N, the leading financial services company in the region, announced strategic organizational changes to align with its value-based, relationship model and the company’s ability to pursue continued growth in a fast-changing marketplace.
C&N President & CEO, Brad Scovill, said, “C&N has been on a multi-year journey to optimize our organization for the future. Our most recent expansions into York and southeastern PA have created the need to adjust the company’s structure and align more closely with our mission of creating value through lifelong relationships. These adjustments will create focus for our Team and enable them to further strengthen relationships with our customers and communities.”
In pursuit of the company’s goal to drive substantial, profitable growth, the changes enhance the company’s ability to further our progress in existing regional markets while continuing to look for expansion opportunities. In addition, clarifying and maturing the regional structure will continue to empower those closest to each market to focus on nurturing relationships and implementing market plans. Finally, several new positions create professional development and career opportunities. C&N expects to fill open roles with as many current team members as possible by year-end.
Two of the new positions include a Chief Information Officer to lead C&N in identifying and implementing the most effective and secure infrastructure, software applications and information systems to support business needs and a Chief Delivery Officer, who will focus on advancing the company’s delivery channel strategy to meet current and future customers’ needs and expectations.
