Two employees at the First National Bank in Trinidad celebrated milestone anniversaries with the business in July.
In 1979 Robin Cirone took a job as a bookkeeper, teller, CD clerk, and loan teller with First National Bank. By July 1989, she was working as a data entry clerk. She later moved on to work in collections for four years, followed by her promotion to loan officer and vice president. In December of 2000 she was promoted to head of operations and human resources, which is the position she holds today.
Cirone is an invaluable employee who oversees employees and operations at all four branches of the bank. She is a very dedicated and knowledgeable member of the management team who has supervised countless conversions of systems within the bank that have assisted in its overall growth and success.
Altogether, Cione has worked in banking for 41 years including the year she worked for a savings and loan in La Junta, Colorado. She recently celebrated her 40-year anniversary with The First National Bank in Trinidad. In her spare time, Cirone enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her husband Ron.
Sheila Duran started her career in the bookkeeping department at First National Bank on July 26, 1999. In 2003 she moved to a position in loan processing where she worked for a year before moving back to the bookkeeping department. She was promoted to assistant head bookkeeper in March 2007 and to assistant vice president in February 2008, which is the position she currently holds. Her many years of experience in the bookkeeping department ensure that things run smoothly on a day-to-day basis with accuracy and precision.
Duran has been married to her husband TJ for 25 years. Together they have 3 daughters, Gabbie, Jacquie and Kaitlynn. She is looking forward to what the future holds for her at First National and enjoys spending time with her family and friends during her free time.
