New faces at TierOne Bank
A Maxwell resident is supervising TierOne Bank operations in Gothenburg.
Sue Davis joined the branch bank as office supervisor on Oct. 19, filling a position vacated by Anne Franzen who took over as director of Gothenburg Housing Authority.
Davis joined TierOne Bank in North Platte as a teller in December of 2008 and had just entered new accounts training when she was offered the job in Gothenburg.
In North Platte, she worked at both the Westfield and downtown branches.
Davis said she’s had a lot of experience in retail management including nine years as store manager of Bath & Body Works in the North Platte Mall.
As office supervisor, Davis is responsible for the everyday operation of the Gothenburg bank.
“I think Gothenburg is a very nice small town,” she said. “Everyone is friendly and receptive and everyone has been helpful.”
Davis is married to Richard Davis who is a conductor for Union Pacific Railroad. The couple has two daughters who live in Lincoln—Stacey Berge and Sally Bach—and four grandchildren.
What helps make Davis’s commute more doable is the opportunity to carpool to Gothenburg with Brady resident Tiffany Weber a couple of times a week.
Weber, who lived in Gothenburg from 1997 to 2003, is thrilled to be back after taking over a position that opened up after Stacy Anderson joined Monsanto.
“When I first started with TierOne in North Platte, I would drive past this one and know that I wanted to work here someday,” Weber said. “When it happened, that was cool.”
A former cosmetologist, she started working at TierOne Bank branches in North Platte as a teller in 2008.
A month ago, Weber returned to Gothenburg as a retail banker.
She is married to Dan Weber who has worked at Parker Tech Seal in Gothenburg for 19 years. Weber has two stepchildren in college—Shane Weber and Amy Weber.
Davis said Great Western Bank is buying about half, or 32, of the TierOne Banks in Nebraska and Iowa including the one in Gothenburg.
The Sioux Falls, SD-based bank supports local economies, she said, noting that it pays local property taxes which some banks and credit unions do not.
She said changes during the takeover, expected in January, will be minor.
