Jana Copeland at Liberty National Bank’s downtown location retired December 31, after 38 years of service with the bank.
“Jana has been a huge part of Liberty National Bank’s success with her leadership ability and knowledge on the operations side of the bank. Her experience will definitely be a challenge to replace, but I am very excited for this “new chapter” she’s about to begin in her life. It has been a privilege working with Jana over the years and I congratulate her for an outstanding and successful career. The Liberty National Bank family wishes her the very best in her retirement,” said bank President, Bill Coleman.
Copeland was hired in 1985 as the bank’s first internal auditor. She held that position until 2000 when she was elected as Vice President at which time, she moved from auditing to managing the operations area of the bank. In 2013 Copeland was promoted to Cashier and in 2016 she was named Senior Vice President. She also served as the bank’s BSA Officer, Bank Security Officer and IT Security Officer. She oversaw the operations department of the bank for the past 23 years.
“I am thankful to have been able to work with such a great group of people for the past 38 years, especially the Cecil Family,” stated Copeland.
Copeland and her husband Billy have been married for 42 years. She plans to enjoy her retirement by traveling and staying active outdoors.
Chairman, Carl T. Cecil said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management, and Staff, I congratulate Jana for her 38 years of service. Jana was a skilled cashier and the bank relied on her many times over the years to solve operational challenges and manage risk. She was able to put up with four generations of my family and I wish her the best in retirement.”
