Star of the Month - October 2015 - Cory Wishert

by Austin Bank 15. October 2015 11:19

This month’s Star is someone many of you may have spoken with over the course of the last few years.  As a Computer Support Specialist working on the Help Desk, he is often a reassuring voice and problem solver when team members encounter technology issues.  For his commitment to serving his fellow employees and optimistic attitude, we are proud to congratulate Cory Wishert on his selection as the October Star of the Month.

Cory joined the Austin Bank team in 2011 having previously worked in the automotive service and hospitality industries.  In his role at the Help Desk, Cory assists Bank employees with a wide variety of technology problems and issues.  He also serves as the main point of contact for the repair of teller printers and scanners . . . and when needed, disposal of that equipment.  “Cory always has a positive attitude and exudes an ‘I’m happy to help’ tone every time,” shares Karrie Stroud, Operations Officer, Whitehouse.  “When the CRA Department was moved, he was very helpful to all of us and we are thankful for his dedication to his job and to the employees of Austin Bank.”  Contributing positively to his work team each day and respecting the people he works with are two traits Cory demonstrates repeatedly.

A graduate of Texas State Technical College, Cory lives in Longview and enjoys many hobbies in his spare time.  A bit of a “foodie”, he enjoys fare from many different places including new culinary items, attending the ‘Taste of Longview’ and trying out different recipes at home.  However, out of all the foods he enjoys his favorite remains pizza.  Other interests include keeping up with current news events, playing online computer games and spending time with family playing cards and dominoes.


“Cory is the type of employee every manager wishes to have.  He is prompt, polite and never avoids work . . . usually volunteering for it.  His greatest strength is the combination of his technical knowledge and the fact he genuinely cares about his fellow employees.”

Jeff Sowell, VP/Network Support Manager, Longview Greggton

“Cory is one of those people who is just easy to talk to.  When users have an issue or concern, he can talk with them and not only help them with their problem, but leave them feeling good about the entire encounter.  He is always willing to help in any way he can.  I’m glad to have Cory on our team.”

John Orr, SVP/Chief Information Officer, Longview Greggton

“Cory is a great example of the spirit we strive for in our Technology department.  He is a team player and really enjoys helping our users.  He will often do an unsolicited follow-up call or email just to make sure the user’s problem was satisfactorily resolved.  Great job, Cory!”

Glenn Bass, SEVP/Deposit Operations, Longview Greggton
