Community Bank of Florida is proud to celebrate Lisa Greer’s 10th Anniversary as a member of our Financial Family. Mrs. Greer is a First Vice President in the Commercial Loan Department. She spends the majority of her work day assisting current loan customers and looking for opportunities to help business owners grow through small business loans. A seasoned banker, Lisa has over 30 years of experience. Most of her time has been focused in the commercial lending area, but she also worked in financial center management and human resources.
Lisa was born in Massachusetts and resides in the Redland with her husband Karl. Aside from spending time with family and raising three children, Lisa has concentrated on volunteering in the business community. She is the Treasurer and Past Chairman of the Economic Development Council of South Miami Dade, which she has been a board member of for ten years. She recently began participating in their Small Business Training program, serving as an instructor for one of the courses. Lisa has also been involved in the local chapter of the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscapers Association (FNGLA), serving as Treasurer since 2004. In 2009, she had the honor of being awarded “Chapter Treasurer of the Year,” by the State FNGLA office. Another organization she has supported since 2005 is the Chamber South Military Affairs Committee, of which she is a past Chairman and current Secretary.
Lisa is driven to help business owners and give back to the community. When asked about what motivates her, Lisa quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Community Bank of Florida is happy to partner with the Kiwanis Club of South Dade in the “Just One Book” book drive. “Just One Book” was started by a ten year old girl name Sarah from Central Florida who wanted to help a neighboring town that was facing hardships. She came up with an idea to help childhood literacy by recycling new or gently used children’s books. Today, “Just 1 Book” has donated thousands of books to needy areas and programs. They will continue to collect and distribute books to children in need, as long as there are kids who want to read. Sarah’s ultimate goal is to have “Just 1 Book” Book Mobiles that will bring books to needy kids in their own neighborhoods
All of Community Bank’s South Dade locations have collection boxes for books targeted to children ages 0-21. The Kiwanis Club project’s goal is to “feed the brain” with books and “feed the body” with PB&J sandwiches. Collection efforts will be ongoing and we encourage everyone to drop off as many new or gently used books as possible to support the cause!

Randy Viggiani is a young business owner in the Lakeland area. We love his passion for customer service and asked him to participate in our testimonial series. Here's what he had to say in our interview:
“For the past seven years, I’ve been in the business of helping people. I started a moving company with just one assistant and now it has expanded to include two moving trucks and several employees. Smart Move offers much more than simply relocating furniture. If someone needs help cleaning up after a move, or they find there is something they can’t handle - like removing a fan or a washer/dryer unit, or they need some handyman work done, I’m glad to do it. It’s all about going the extra mile to make people happy during what most consider a stressful chore.
