Dawnmarie Scofield, Sales and Service Branch Leader, started her career with Surety Bank over 20 years ago. After her last child was born, she worked as a stay-at-home mom for four years before deciding to re-enter the workforce. Dawnmarie originally started with Surety in a teller position, and within a few short years was promoted to head teller. After a while, the role of Branch Manager opened up, and that is the position she serves in to this day.
It is so evident that Dawnmarie loves her job by the way she speaks about her clients. She truly loves working with and helping customers, as is evidenced by what she orchestrated for one of her clients that was struggling with Kidney Disease. A while back, a Surety Bank customer needed a kidney transplant, but didn’t have the money for a reserve fund, which meant she couldn’t be put on a donor recipient list. Dawnmarie, along with the help of Surety co-workers, orchestrated and held a silent auction, using donations made from local business owners, and were able to raise enough money for their client to have a reserve fund, which placed her on a kidney recipient list. That client ended up getting her new kidney, and to this day she is happy, healthy, and you guessed it…still a proud Surety Bank customer!
Besides helping customers through their trials and celebrating their victories, Dawnmarie’s favorite part of her job is the family environment that Surety has worked to cultivate. She truly feels accepted and like part of a family unit when she comes to work, which is why it has been so easy for her to stay with Surety for the past 20 years. This job has not only provided an income, but also an opportunity for personal growth and satisfaction, and Dawnmarie looks forward to continued growth as an individual, as well as seeing Surety continue to grow and expand throughout central Florida. Dawnmarie, thank you for all you do for Surety Bank.
Here’s to 20 more years!
