Fulton Bank names first relationship manager for agricultural group
Lauren Lewis was named the first relationship manager for Fulton Bank’s Agricultural Financial Services Group on Jan. 1 for the state of New Jersey. In this role, she will support production agriculture, equine agriculture, nursery, greenhouse and agri-business clients throughout the New Jersey region in managing and growing their business amid the industry’s unique challenges and complexities.
This position represents a full-circle opportunity for Lewis, who studied agriculture and developed a parallel interest in financial services. This ultimately led her to Fulton Bank, where she learned about the bank’s growing agricultural department.
Lewis joined Fulton in 2018 as a senior teller before joining its Management Trainee Program. Upon completion of the program, she accepted a position as a credit analyst within the bank. Lewis holds a bachelor’s degree in agriculture from Cameron University. She is currently enrolled in the MBA program at American Public University.
“Agricultural communities play a critical role in a successful and sustainable economy, which is why Fulton has worked in this sector for more than 140 years,” said Scott Hauseman, senior lender, Fulton Bank Agricultural Financial Services Group. “Lauren’s agricultural experience and passion for finance make her uniquely qualified for this opportunity and we are thrilled to welcome her to our team.”
