HARRISBURG, Pa., (June 1, 2020) — Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers (PACB) President and CEO Kevin L. Shivers today applauded Brent Smith, president of LINKBANK in Camp Hill, PA, who recently was recognized nationally as a “40 Under 40: Emerging Community Bank Leader” by Independent Banker Magazine.
“Brent Smith lives the community bank philosophy every day and Pennsylvania community bankers are proud that Brent was recognized for his contributions to the community,” said Kevin L. Shivers, PACB president and CEO. “Brent has worked hard not only to learn his profession, but also to make a positive impact on the lives of those who live in the community. Brent’s meaningful involvement with so many local charities personifies a true community banker.”
Brent Smith’s vision for community banking began with his instrumental role in founding LINKBANK, a new community-driven, locally-focused, community bank in South Central PA, with a vision to foster personal relationships, inspire trust, and empower digital innovation.
