President & CEO
York Traditions Bank
Draganosky provides leadership for the bank’s strategic, operational, and financial activities. He works closely with the board of directors and executive team to accomplish the bank’s goals and objectives for employee engagement, client experiences, shareholder value, community support, and risk management. “It is a true privilege to serve our many stakeholders,” he said.
He has served as president since 2015 and as CEO since 2017.
“While much has changed in my 35+-year career, the financial services sector continues to serve as the lifeblood of commerce. It is gratifying to know that I have played some role in helping to make a difference in the lives of many personal and business households in central Pennsylvania,” Draganosky said.
He said he’s learned happiness and fulfillment drive success. “The Happiness Advantage” author Shawn Achor notes, “Happiness is the precursor to success, not merely the result.” “I periodically fall into the trap of cynicism and have to re-evaluate my mindset, but I always come back to believing in the power of positivity!” Draganosky said.
He enjoys outdoor activities, especially hiking, fishing, and hunting. Over the past few years, he’s also spent more free time off-road driving and navigating over rough terrain. “I love exploring new places, the challenge of overcoming physical and mental barriers, and the ultimate experience of participating in nature,” Draganosky said.
