We've Got Milestones to Celebrate!

Posted by Tompkins VIST Bank on Mar 28, 2019 8:03:00 AM

Every year around this time, Tompkins VIST Bank recognizes staff who have reached service milestones and we’d like to share their names with you:


Shirley Breininger45th Anniversary-

This anniversary deserves special recognition, so a special “Thank You” to Shirley Breininger for more than four decades of service to our bank.  The Senior Enterprise Content Management system administrator joined us as teller in 1973, but her skills in automation and technology were soon recognized.  She rose through the ranks in information technology and operations, focusing on activities that were crucial to the bank’s ability to provide faster, more efficient transactions. Her many roles here included training tellers on automated systems and helping to install PCs and networks. This October, she was promoted to Officer and senior ECM system administrator.  Congratulations Shirley, and thank you for your service!
