First Resource Bank is proud to announce that its Chief Retail Banking Officer, John Durso, has received the Chairman’s Award from the Main Line Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Durso has been an active member of both the Main Line Chamber of Commerce and its non-profit arm, the Main Line Chamber Foundation, for a number of years, writes prnewswire.com.
His most recent tenure with the Main Line Chamber’s Foundation is as the Foundation Chairman. The Main Line Chamber Foundation has several educational initiatives but its primary function is to grant scholarships for local volunteer first responders in order to lessen the financial burden on them and their families. This is made possible thanks to an annual 5K run/walk through Wayne, Pa, which was recently added to the US Track and Field Association’s Mid-Atlantic Circuit. Under John’s leadership the Foundation has granted more than $158,000 in scholarships to over 60 Main Line volunteer first responders, taking this organization to new heights reaching more than $500,000 in scholarship awards since inception in 2005.
Bernard Dagenais, President and CEO of The Main Line Chamber of Commerce and President of The Main Line Chamber Foundation, said Durso is deserving of the honor as one of the longest-serving members of the Board of Directors.
President & CEO of Frist Resource Bank, Glenn B. Marshall, stated “We are excited for John with this public acknowledgement of his commitment to the Main Line community. This is what community banking is all about. We pride ourselves in hiring excellent local bankers who give 100% to everything they do, ranging from their client relationships to all non-profit and business organizations they volunteer for. John is a prime example of the culture of First Resource Bank. His and the Bank’s commitment to the Main Line will be expanding in 2019 with the opening of our newest physical location in Wayne. There, John will be easily found and available to anyone who wants to learn more about the Main Line Chamber of Commerce and of course, First Resource Bank.”
