Fleetwood Bank’s Phil Courtney Honored By ICBA’s Independent Banker 40 Under 40

BANKING PROFESSIONAL, PHILIP COURTNEY, RECOGNIZED FOR HIS DEDICATION AS AN INNOVATIVE STRATEGIST

The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) recently published their 40 Under 40 Community Bank Leaders Awards in Independent Banker, the number one source of community banking news. This was the sixth year that ICBA recognized an insightful group of professionals who have continuously “stepped up to lend a hand, offer a new perspective or make a difference in their communities.”

Fleetwood Bank’s own, Philip Courtney, AVP, Compliance Manager and Loan Administration Manager, was one of the 40 individuals recognized across the nation. Courtney received kudos for his ability to think outside the box as an innovative strategist. Fleetwood Bank’s loan operations group was moved under his leadership in April 2022. Since then, Courtney has organized a team that’s cross-trained to work more efficiently, thus improving the bank’s audit and exam process. He also holds a passion for finding ways that Fleetwood Bank can garner brand recognition and introduce new marketing strategies.

Courtney was recognized for his achievements at the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers (PACB) Inspire Awards in Harrisburg, PA on Thursday, June 20.

“The decision to move the Bank’s loan operations group under Phil’s care was beneficial for all stakeholders of our organization. Phil also recently spearheaded the launch of our online consumer loan application, which allows customers to apply for a consumer loan from the convenience of their home.”

- Bob Kline, COO of Fleetwood Bank​

Courtney, who just celebrated his fifth anniversary with Fleetwood Bank last month, is honored to be recognized as one of ICBA’s 40 Under 40 honorees. “This award represents the collective dedication of our community bank. It reaffirms our commitment to serving local communities, fostering economic resilience, and enhancing the customer experience,” Courtney explains. “As a recipient, I feel a deep responsibility to continue driving innovation, collaborating with colleagues, and supporting our community. This award underscores the vital role community banks play in empowering neighborhoods, creating jobs, and fueling financial dreams. Thank you to ICBA for celebrating community banking excellence, and to my colleagues and customers for their unwavering support.”

“This national recognition is not one to be taken lightly,” states Timothy Snyder, CEO and President of Fleetwood Bank. “Phil’s dedication to ensuring our customers do not fall victim to fraud or scams never waivers, and he greets every day with an enthusiasm to ensure that our bank is a leader in safety, organization, and professionalism. He illustrates what our Bank is all about, and we are extremely proud of him for being recognized alongside other leaders in our industry.”
