Laurel resident and Suffolk County National Bank executive Nancy Jacob was recognized recently as one of the top 50 most influential women on Long Island last week, an annual event that recognized the Island’s top professionals in government, education, finance and other fields.
Hosted by the Long Island Business News, Jacob – a vice president and the company’s director of human resources – stood out as the only North Fork resident to attract the honor this year.
Joe Gaviola, chairman of the board of Suffolk Bancorp and Suffolk County National Bank, highlighted Jacob’s role in the company as crucial during the bank’s recent restructuring, which included replacement or elimination of positions at every level.
According to Gaviola, “Nancy has played a vital role in not only managing the HR function during this difficult time, but heading up many additional projects and assignments required by our regulators.”
Jacob also serves on Riverhead Town’s Youth Bureau, as well as the Community Awareness Center.
