Hatboro Federal Savings is pleased to announce the promotion of longtime employee Linda R. Roehner as Interim President of the bank. Ms. Roehner has been with Hatboro Federal for 35 years, most recently serving as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
“Today, we open a new chapter in the history of Hatboro Federal Savings as we welcome Linda Roehner as the first female leader in the history of the bank,” said Franklin Jarrett, Lead Director of Hatboro Federal. “Linda has the experience and the leadership Hatboro Federal needs to continue to evolve and succeed.”
Born and raised in the Hatboro-Horsham area, Roehner graduated from Hatboro-Horsham High School and started at Hatboro Federal Savings as a teller in 1979. She worked her way up from there, learning every level of banking, from customer service to management.
“Having worked nearly every job at the bank throughout the years has given me an intimate understanding of Hatboro Federal and its role in the lives of our customers and our community,” Roehner said. “I'm proud to have devoted my entire career to this bank, and to have earned the opportunity to lead it into the future. I couldn't be more proud of the team we have here at Hatboro Federal, and I’m eager for us all to move forward together.”
Roehner attended Philadelphia University, and has become an integral part of the Hatboro-Horsham community. She serves on the board of directors of The Rotary Club of Hatboro and of the Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation, and is a member of the Greater Horsham Chamber of Commerce and the Financial Managers Society.
Hatboro Federal Savings is a true community bank, and has been ever since April 17, 1941, when bank officers signed the papers on its first loan – a $4,500 mortgage so a family could buy a house in the Borough of Hatboro. The bank’s commitment over those decades always has been to its customers – who also are friends, neighbors, and fellow members of the community.
As Hatboro has grown over the years, so, too, has Hatboro Federal. Its first office opened at 39 South York Rd. in 1941, and a decade later, it bought the historic John Harrison House at 221 South York Rd. After renovating the interior and exterior of the historic structure, which dates to 1742, the bank reopened its new offices on April 26, 1951, becoming an immediate landmark in the community.
Continued growth in the Bucks-Mont area after World War II led the bank to expand beyond Hatboro’s borders. Today, Hatboro Federal Savings serve customers in the Warminster area at its office on York Road, which opened in 1960; in Warrington, at its office at Bristol and Easton Roads, which opened in the renovated 1799 John Barclay house in 1964; and in Jamison, at its fourth branch office at 2523 York Road, which opened in 2009.
