“I always had a direct communication style, but as I’ve evolved, the softer and more authentic I’ve become, and the more effective I am.”Jeane Vidoni
Jeane Vidoni, President &CEO of Penn Community Bank, shared the story behind her title with us on Sunday, October 24, 2021.
Over the course of more than 35 years in banking, Jeane served in various roles at financial institutions of all sizes throughout the Philadelphia region, gaining insight into the workings of community, regional and corporate banks.
As an active leader in the Pennsylvania business and financial community, Jeane donates her time and leadership talents to several industry groups, including as Chair of Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council (CDIAC) of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and as Pennsylvania Member Director on the board of directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of Pittsburgh, which supports homeownership programs throughout Delaware, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
She is committed to fulfilling Penn Community Bank’s mission to act as a catalyst for growth in the communities it serves, representing the bank as a member of the Bucks County Workforce and Economic Development Board, immediate past president of the board of directors of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, member of the advisory council of Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County, and on the board of directors of the United Way of Bucks County.
A graduate of Muhlenberg College, Jeane holds an MBA from Saint Joseph’s University. She lives in Doylestown, Bucks County.
Jean grew up in what she describes as less than ideal circumstances. Her mother suffered from mental illness. Any child unable to have a healthy relationship with their mother knows what that can do. Fortunately, Jeane had a loving and supportive father who instilled a tremendous sense of confidence and independence in her. It helped her to see herself as capable and worthy and she carries that with her today in her role as a CEO.
