Regents Bank Joanna Archer Recognized with 2011 “40 Under 40” Award
Joanna Archer, Assistant Vice President at Regents Bank San Diego has been recognized by San Diego Metropolitan Magazine’s “40 Under 40 Awards” for 2011. This honor is bestowed upon those individuals under age 40 that are having a substantial impact on the San Diego business community and their companies, as well as giving of themselves to a variety of civic and personal causes.
At the age of twenty three, Joanna was hired by Scripps Bank to be a back office clerk. Within three years, with her talent and dedication having been recognized by senior management, Joanna was managing the department (an officer position) and had tripled her salary. Her job required sophisticated knowledge of the technical systems used to route money in and out of the bank.
Known in the local banking industry for her warm personality and her many talents, Regents Bank recruited Joanna to be their manager of central operations and cash management,. Joanna was just 29 years old at the time. She currently holds the title of Assistant Vice President and manages two departments – the Central Operations Area, which oversees all wire transfers in and out, exception items like returning non-sufficient funds (NSF) and fraud prevention and the Electronic Banking Department. In addition, she acts as a consultant for Regents Bank’s clients who require assistance setting up and operating remote deposit capture, other remote banking products and ACH origination. Balancing her time away from the office to assist clients as well as her supervisory duties managing two of the bank’s departments is a challenge that Joanna welcomes and seems to meet with ease.
Joanna has risen through the ranks quickly at Regents Bank and has shown a great appetite for knowledge along the way, which she happily shares with her co-workers. She has excelled early in her career with Regents and is an important part of the leadership team. Regents Bank is extremely proud of Joanna for being a recipient of this prestigious award and is very appreciative of the goodwill she spreads throughout the local community.
In 2009 Joanna’s 10 year old son was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. Joanna researched the disease and decided to make a difference in the lives of those afflicted and their families. After discovering that millions of people suffer from this disease, which has no cure, she got involved with the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and helped raise money for type one diabetes research (related to juvenile diabetes) through the organization’s charity walk. Her first year out, she won JDRF’s golden shoe award for personally raising over $1000 for the cause. This year, Joanna and her husband are trying to raise even more money by coordinating a basketball tournament in addition to doing the walk. Joanna is hopeful that one day there will be a cure which will help restore the health of these young people.
Joanna also dedicates her free time to supporting her nine-year-old daughter in her Girl Scout activities. Joanna and her daughter have been Girl Scout members for the last five years, and Joanna recently led the troop in earning a badge for Finance. She taught the girls about saving money, foreign currency and banking products. Because most of the troop members’ mothers work full-time, everyone pitches in to help. Joanna has helped raise funds to donate to the Girl Scouts’ Operation Thin Mint to send Thin Mint cookies to American military troops overseas and to create Easter cards for patients at Rady Children’s Hospital.
