Careers

Our employees aren’t here for a job. They’re here for a career.

“When I first interviewed at ChoiceOne Bank, I could tell the bank truly cared about the staff and the communities they do business in. I’ve been in banking for 16 years and have never been at a bank that has volunteered more in its communities or cared so much about its customers. To say that I am honored to work here is an understatement.”

Trent Hancock

VP Regional Manager

“After much persuasion from a ChoiceOne employee, I finally decided to submit an application for a Teller position in 2010. I’ve since moved to work in the Customer Service Center. ChoiceOne Bank impacted my life for the best as I’ve been given the opportunity to grow and learn…an opportunity I did not see when I first started after working 8 years as a cashier for a local grocery store.”

Vanessa Garcia

Customer Service Representative

“I started in 2007 as a Part Time Teller, and was later promoted to Assistant Branch Manager, Interim Branch Manager, and then Branch Manager in Rockford. I have recently taken a position as a Loan Operations Specialist where I will be able to use my customer service skills. ChoiceOne Bank is great at investing in their employees and giving us an opportunity to have a career, not just a job.”

Penny Stupnicki

Loan Operations Specialist

“I started working at ChoiceOne in the 70s in the loan department. After five years, I left to work at a couple other places but I came back to the bank because to me, it feels like home. One of the things I love about ChoiceOne Bank is the fact that I can talk to the President, and he listens.”

Bonnie Koehn

VP Client Development
