The Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank recently announced the appointment of Eugene “Gino” DeGiosio to the position of VP of Commercial Lending. JTNB CEO/President, Craig A. Zurn, related that he is excited about the vast experience and opportunities that DeGiosio will be able to bring to the bank. Zurn added that DeGiosio “brings more than 14 years of various managerial and lending experiences to our community Bank." DeGiosio has a BA from East Stroudsburg University and his former careers include SVP/Commercial Lender with Conestoga Bank and VP with PNC Bank managing a team of Business Bankers covering Northeast PA.

DeGiosio stated that he looks forward to working with a true community bank that not only cares about its customers but makes lending decisions locally and not in an office located at a distant city by people who never met the applicant. He added that he looks forward to help in any way he can to increase loan volume and build relationships with many of his local and former Lehigh Valley customers who have become frustrated with the "Big Bank Experience". 


NEW!  Important Notices about ATM/Debit Card Fraud and Escheat period from the Commonwealth of PA


ATM/DEBIT CARD FRAUD  Due to fraud, there are states where debit card transactions have been blocked.  We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Traveling Outside of PA or the USPlease contact our Deposits Processing Department at 570-325-3400 to avoid your transactions being denied.  They could appear to be out of your normal spending pattern.  We can set your debit card up for traveling out of state or country for your protection to avoid this situation.



NOTICE:  The Commonwealth of PA has reduced its escheat period from 5 years to 3 years.  JTNB has reduced our dormancy period from 3 years to 2 years.

New name......same great bank!

Jim Thorpe National Neighborhood Bank

Effective on December 30, 2013, JTNB converted from a national bank charter to a Pennsylvania state chartered bank and a state member bank of the Federal Reserve bank of Philadelphia.

As part of the charter conversion our name changed to the Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank.  This will not change the way we do business with our customers.  You can still expect the same friendly personalized service that our employees have always given.

All eligible deposits will remain insured by the FDIC
