Community Bank Delaware has announced the election of Kathlyn Kiernan Newcomb to its board of directors. Newcomb is the vice president of marketing and client services for Coldwell Banker Rehoboth Resort Realty, with more than 18 years of experience as a successful Sussex County businesswoman.
Upon completion of her degree in business administration from the University of Delaware in 1995, Newcomb began her real estate career as a full-time rental agent. She specialized in vacation rentals for more than five years, then moved to head up the rental accounting department before becoming an agent specializing in development and new construction single- and multi-family home projects. In summer 2010, Newcomb obtained her broker's license.
In addition to her work as an agent and broker, Newcomb also oversees the accounting and finance departments for Coldwell Banker and Irish Eyes Restaurants.
She is very active in civic and community activities and projects, and currently serves on the Beebe Board of Ambassadors. She has also served as a board member for the American Heart Association.
Lynda Messick, CEO of Community Bank, says, “I’ve been fortunate to have known Kathy since she was fresh out of college, and even then she showed a tremendous amount of professionalism, as well as being a very astute businesswoman. We are so fortunate to have her on our board. Her knowledge of Sussex County and her experience in finance, sales and marketing will really be an asset to our organization.”
Community Bank Delaware is an independent, locally owned community bank with offices in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach.
