    SPOTLIGHT on Pro Air Heating & Cooling

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Tim & Lori Holtsclaw, owners of Pro Air Heating & Cooling in Lakeland, Florida were recently featured in our testimonial ad campaign.  We loved hearing how their business has blossomed. Here is what Tim had to say in his interview:

    “I started learning the air conditioning business with my father when I was 12 years old. I’ve worked for several companies and over the years learned what was best for the customer. Three years ago, my wife Lori and I opened up our own air conditioning company, Pro Air. 

    We’ve grown tremendously in a short time and since we serve all of Polk County, we are always on the run. Our banker Sofia set us up with their EZ deposit machine so we could make deposits when we got around to it. While having the banking tools we need is important, customer service and a reliable banker are more important. We know from experience that if something happens, our banker will take care of us. Last year we had someone try to use our debit card fraudulently, and our bank spent almost five hours with us, calling the merchants and making sure our money was returned. It’s nice to know we can focus on growing our business and Community Bank of Florida will be there to provide the same kind of service we provide to our customers.”

    Community Bank of Florida Employees Graduate from the Florida School of Banking

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Community Bank of Florida employees Julie Romero and Jeffrey Codallo recently graduated from the Florida Bankers Association’s Florida School of Banking, held at the University of Florida. This extensive three year program provided them with an opportunity to increase their knowledge about the banking industry and the economy. The full schedule called for a week of daily classes, evening ‘prep’ sessions, and a final examination on the last day of the course.

     The first year of the school built a foundation of banking knowledge, with lectures in Money and Banking, Central Bank and Monetary Policy, Accounting, Leadership and Financial Deregulation. The second year provided them with more in depth financial calculations, including Statement Analysis, Loan Policy and specialized lending procedures. The third and final year gave them an opportunity to put their knowledge into action with a bank management computer simulation. 

    Julie Romero, AVP of COMBANK Mortgage and Retail Banking Officer, was enthusiastic about graduating from the school. Mrs. Romero graduated with honors, in the top 5 of her class. Jeffrey Codallo, Director of Education, also received recognition at the graduation. His bank simulation team won the overall competition, receiving trophies and class bragging rights.
