Laurel resident and Suffolk County National Bank executive Nancy Jacob was recognized recently as one of the top 50 most influential women on Long Island. She was honored by Long Island Business News at an annual event that recognized the island’s top professionals in government, education, finance and other fields.
Ms. Jacob, a vice president and director of human resources at SCNB, was the only North Fork resident to be honored this year.
Joe Gaviola, chairman of the board of Suffolk Bancorp and Suffolk County National Bank, noted Ms. Jacob’s role in the company as crucial during the bank’s recent restructuring, which included replacement or elimination of positions at every level.
“Nancy has played a vital role in not only managing the HR function during this difficult time, but heading up many additional projects and assignments required by our regulators,” he said.
Ms. Jacob also works with Riverhead Town’s Youth Bureau, as well as the Riverhead Community Awareness Program.
