Although we've had some amazing anniversaries lately, a 5 year milestone is still something to celebrate and we're proud to highlight Violet Holgate on her anniversary. Violet is the Assistant Manager at our Key Largo Office. She’s been in the banking profession for over 25 years, with experience in trust departments, deposit operations and personal banking. She believes customer service is the most important aspect of her job so it’s no surprise she has been named a top performer among our personal bankers, both on a quarterly basis and as our 2012 year-end award recipient.
Violet was born in Jamaica and the tropical influence can be seen in her taste of music and climate. She migrated to New York and Ohio at a young age and says it was a major temperature change for her. Now she feels like she is back home and is grateful to once again be able to listen to the ocean.
Violet spends much of her time with her family, which includes three sons and a step daughter. She believes in giving back by not only donating money to organizations, but on many occasions she has opened her home to those in need of shelter. When asked about her upcoming anniversary, Violet expressed, “Community Bank of Florida is a great place to work. You feel like a member of a family instead of just an employee.”
