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 then moved to work in the Customer Service Center and now serve as a Loan Administrator on our Mortgage team. 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 Paprocki

Loan Administrator

“I have been in banking for 20+ years and have a passion for helping people and serving my community. I love that ChoiceOne Bank truly embraces that philosophy, as is evident in our mission statement.  As employees, we are encouraged to grow, develop and be the best version of ourselves.  I’m so very grateful I was introduced to ChoiceOne Bank and joined this amazing group of people almost 2 years ago.  I get to do what I love daily, with some pretty great people, and I couldn’t be happier!”

Skylet Cummings

AVP, Branch Manager

“I have been with the same bank for over 40 years. I initially started thinking it was just a job, but soon it became a career. I have held many positions at the bank starting in operations and eventually transitioning through lending to my current position today; Loan Compliance. My passion has been to work hard to serve our customers and communities. I am glad I work at a bank that has the same passion.”

Beth Henderson

VP, Consumer Administration
