WELLSBORO, PA - The Citizens & Northern Corporation Board has named John Reber Executive Vice President – Director of Risk Management for Citizens & Northern Bank. Reber now becomes part of a seven member leadership team, serving under the direction of Charles H. Updegraff, Jr., Chairman, President and CEO.

Reber previously held the position of Vice President – Director of Risk Management. As Director of Risk Management, Reber is responsible for interfacing with all business units to coordinate the bank’s Risk Management program. He oversees Internal Audit, Compliance, Commercial Loan Review and Security Departments and serves as the bank’s liaison on all regulatory exams.

A six and a half year employee of Citizens & Northern Bank, Reber earned his B.S. Degree in finance from Bloomsburg University.

He is a member of the Wellsboro Rotary Club and the Delmar Township Zoning Hearing Board.

Reber and his wife, Wendy, live in Wellsboro.

“New regulatory requirements, along with huge strides in technology, have greatly increased the importance of risk management for financial institutions,” said Updegraff. “Bank examinations are becoming increasingly risk-based and recent legislation has heightened Board of Directors oversight responsibility for risk management. Risk management has always played a prominent role at C&N and that role will only expand going forward. C&N is fortunate to have someone with John’s talent and expertise to fill that role.”
