The role fulfills both a player and coach role in achieving team and individual sales goals by delivering product/service 'value' and differentiating solutions that address clearly understood customer needs.
The Branch Manager should have experience working in the digital space to show customers the easy accessibility of our mobile and online experience. In this capacity, the Branch Manager plays a critical role in building a diverse talent pipeline and developing colleagues to ensure their capabilities keep pace with future business needs.

The Branch Manager must be able to clearly communicate messages to colleagues and translate business priorities in a way that colleagues embrace and are able to execute. The Branch Manager is also responsible for the branch P&L and, therefore, must understand financials and key business drivers and use that understanding to guide sound decision-making. In addition, the Branch Manager leads, manages, and directs all colleague and sales activities to ensure P&L targets are met and exceeded.
