We are proud to introduce our January 2014 Star of the Month:
Dedication to his job, ability to work well with others, and positive attitude are just a few of the outstanding characteristics of the January Star of the Month. Emmanuel DeLeon, Manny, is a Commercial Portfolio Manager working out of the Marshall office. He began working for Austin Bank in 2010 as a part time Teller in the Longview Loop office, and then moved to work as a Credit Analyst in Longview Greggton before assuming his current role. “He is a true team player,” states Trudy Harris, AVP/Retail Office Manager, Marshall. “He is always willing to help out and has even helped in a teller position at crucial times.”
Recognized as a Star for his positive attitude, pride in his work, and as mentioned above, his teamwork, Manny was nominated by several of his Marshall team members. “Since he has been in our office, we have enjoyed his sense of humor and smile. He is fun, eager to learn, bilingual and a true professional,” shared Laura White, Loan Assistant, Marshall. Having experience in multiple positions, Emmanuel is eager to pass along what he has learned to new employees as a Mentor through the Bank’s Mentor program.
A graduate of Daingerfield High School, he earned his Business degree from the University of Texas at Tyler. In his free time, Manny is a sports enthusiast – whether watching or participating. A former bull rider, he now plays softball, hunts and fishes, and enjoys watching professional boxing. In addition, he plays the guitar and sings.
“Manny has a smile that will light up the world. He has an awesome attitude about everything and is very appreciative of the opportunities he has received at Austin Bank. Our customers love him and look forward to seeing him when they come in.”
