With experience as a Teller and Teller Operations Supervisor, this month’s Star has made the move behind the scenes in the Operations department and quickly made her mark. Please join in congratulating Colleen Eakin, Deposit Operations Administrative Assistant as our January Star of the Month.
Colleen joined the Austin Bank family in 2012 and now works in the Bank’s Longview Greggton location. She is responsible for processing all levies and liens in coordination with branch staff and attorneys while also assisting the Bookkeeping department with debit card issues including maintenance, ordering and other needs as they arise. “Colleen never wants to sit idle. She is always reaching out to help others and never hesitates to learn something new,” shares Rhonda Pierce, Bookkeeping Supervisor, Longview Greggton. Keith Fletcher, SVP/Securities and Facilities Manager, adds, “Colleen is a dedicated employee and self-starter. She is extremely organized, able to complete assignments quickly and eager to learn, volunteering her time to any area needed.”
A graduate of Kilgore High School, Colleen attended Kilgore College and now lives in Longview with her husband, Lynn. They have three children and one granddaughter, Charlotte, who has captured the heart of her grandmother. When not playing the role of doting grandmother, Colleen enjoys cooking and baking.
“Colleen is more brilliant than just a Star. Perhaps we could call her Sun of the Month. After moving to our area Colleen quickly became a key team member. She hates to be idle and has the drive, ability and intelligence to continue to move up and take on more responsibility.”
Glenn Bass, SEVP/Deposit Operations, Longview Greggton
“Colleen is an outstanding employee with a great attitude. She is a valuable team member not only completing her tasks but also is a daily fixture in Bookkeeping helping with debit card processing. She is a great asset to Austin Bank and we are proud to have her working in Operations.”
Kathy Kidd, SVP/Operations Officer, Longview Greggton
“Though not a member of the Bookkeeping department, Colleen has stepped in and helped us with whatever needs done. She is a wonderful example of what a team player is.”
Rhonda Pierce, Bookkeeping Supervisor, Longview Greggton
