Monthly Mentors:
Career Advice for Young Bankers

Hollie Shelton, our latest Monthly Mentor, has been in the banking industry for over 20 years, with 11 of those years focused on Treasury and Payment Solutions. During her tenure at Triad Business Bank, she has been able to successfully build and train a Treasury Team, implement new software systems and on-board over 100+ clients, adding to the banks continued success. She graduated from Marshall University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and she received her Certified Treasury Professional designation in from the Association of Financial Professionals in 2013.

Hollie has been in the Triad since 2005 and has been an active member of the community, serving at Hospice & Palliative Care of Greensboro, Susan G. Komen and the Women’s Professional Forum. Read on to learn Holly’s thoughts on networking, her motivation and the importance of values!

Establish a Network You Can Trust: The best career advice I ever received as a young banker was to join multiple networking groups, meet people and find a mentor. I didn’t limit myself to people that were in my office or in banking, and in doing so, I’ve made valuable mentoring relationships that I’ve maintained for over 15 years. These women that I’ve connected with didn’t always have the same views on life, and that has challenged me as a person and allowed me to approach problems from new perspectives. I felt safe to explore as these people continued to push me out of my comfort zone, allowing for personal growth and professional development. Find people who believe in you – these people will not always give you the information that you want to hear, but they will give you the information that you need to hear.

Find Your Motivation: The key to my motivation has been continuing education. I’ve been exposed to different roles within the banking industry and found that Treasury Services is always changing – technology changes, systems change and there is always something new to learn, which inspires me to grow and develop. I encourage all young bankers to find segments or areas of interest, and to understand that all people have a purpose to make the wheel go round.

Live Up To Your Values: I started banking as a teller, so I feel confident that this advice is important to know in all roles within the bank. All people play a very valuable role in the operations of a bank, so take the time to get to know others and how they contribute to your success. Ask questions and see how their roles may intertwine with yours. Simply put, treat others as you want to be treated!
