Kathleen Hiltner, board chair and senior vice president of branch administration/business development, said Thomas will be a welcome addition.
“Liz’s years of experience navigating complex marketing and public relations situations across a broad spectrum of industries will be invaluable to our team,” she said. “We are confident her guidance will help us foster growth and success, not only for Liberty Bell Bank, but for the communities we serve.”
Liberty Bell Bank, a division of the Bank of Delmarva, has New Jersey branches in Marlton, Cherry Hill and Moorestown.
A public relations professional with more than three decades of experience, Thomas started Thomas/Boyd Communications with Pam Boyd in 1998. The state-designated small, woman-owned public relations agency provides comprehensive communications programs for its client base comprised of regional, national and international businesses, associations and nonprofits.
Thomas currently serves on the board of New Jersey Public Media; the boards of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey, the Greater Atlantic City Chamber and the Avalon Home and Land Owners Association; and the Community Relations & Development Committee of the Salvation Army Kroc Center, Camden.
Liberty Bell Bank CEO John Breda and New Jersey Market President John Herring said Thomas will have impact.
“Our board members serve an important and multifaceted role as ambassadors to our local communities and helpful mentors to the bank itself as experts in their respective fields,” Breda said.
Thomas said longtime board members Roy Fazio and Jack Tarditi encouraged her to assume the role.
“While everyone knows it is impossible to say no to Roy or Jack, I am genuinely pleased to have been asked and, ultimately, to serve on the bank’s board, where I plan to put my years of public relations experience to work on its behalf,” she said.
