Congratulations to our Stonier School of Banking Graduate, Janice Tillman

Queensborough would like to congratulate Janice Tillman, SVP Director of Retail Operations on her graduation from the ABA Graduate School of Banking. The graduation ceremony took place June 8th at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.  Janice received both a Stonier diploma and a Wharton Leadership Certificate.


Stonier Graduate School is the nation’s original graduate school founded by Dr. Harold Stonier, in 1935.  Today, students learn from more than 100 faculty members and capstone advisors. This rich history and body of leadership add up to the most prestigious education program in the banking industry.


Stonier is a three-year program held at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business and has provided executive education to more than 35,000 senior-level bankers and regulators, including some of the most respected banking executives in the U.S. The program emphasizes strategic planning, financial management, and leadership and includes a Capstone Strategic Project, giving graduates a unique opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained at Stonier to a major initiative within their own organization.


“Our staff members are the reason this bank is successful, so I believe it is important to invest in opportunities for development and education,” says Bill Easterlin, Queensborough President and CEO. “Congratulations to Janice on her graduation from this prestigious school.”


Two hundred and twenty nine bankers graduated from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking this year.
