Geitz, President and CEO, Joan Bulanowski, SVP and Chief Mortgage and Operations Officer, Roger DelGiorno, VP and Mortgage Operations Officer, attended the ceremony and jointly congratulated the graduates, “Joe’s and Jennifer’s positions at Simsbury Bank and their previous experience provide both of them with an excellent foundation of how a financial institution operates.
