The former executive director of the Walla Walla Community College Foundation has made a return to her roots in the banking industry.
Linda Hardy began work as Community Bank's vice president and market manager for the greater Walla Walla region. She began the position Sept. 1, according to an announcement from the bank.
A native Walla Wallan, Hardy had served a decade with the foundation. Before that she had prior bank marketing and public relations experience in the Walla Walla and Portland areas.
In her new role for the Oregon-based bank, Hardy will help with business generation and retention at the downtown and Milton-Freewater branches and the new branch under construction in College Place, said Keith Burghardt, Community Bank's senior vice president and marketing director.
Joseph-based Community Bank, a subsidiary of Community Bancshares Inc., has $380 million in assets and 150 employees.
