Jim Glines, president and CEO of Community Bank of Santa Maria, has announced the promotion of executive assistant Christine Coulson to a bank officer.

"Christine first joined Community Bank of Santa Maria in July 2013, and as expected she has thrived in our environment. We continue to be honored to have someone of Coulson’s character and integrity with our bank” Glines said.

Coulson started her banking career over 20 years ago with Bank of Santa Maria and has successfully retained the customer service philosophies she learned from the beginning.

Coulson is originally from the Central Coast and attended UC Santa Barbara. She left her position at Bank of Santa Maria to move to Northern California with her family.

“Returning to the Santa Maria Valley last year and joining the Community Bank of Santa Maria team is like coming home," Coulson said. "We take pride in servicing our customers the way we do. As a result, it provides great job satisfaction.”

Community Bank of Santa Maria is the only bank headquartered right here in Santa Maria. The bank opened for business in March 2001 and employs a staff of 47, including Lompoc Community Bank, a division of Community Bank of Santa Maria which opened for business in June, 2005 and our Oak Knolls branch which opened for business in April 2007.

We invite all of you to stop by and meet Coulson, and our entire staff, and see for yourself what "Santa Maria Style" Banking is all about!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
