Chambersburg-based Franklin Financial Services Corp., the bank holding company of F&M Trust, announced the appointment of a new director as it expands into Maryland. 

Effective Dec. 15, Gregory I. Snook was named a director of Franklin Financial Services Corp. and F&M Trust. He will serve a term to expire at the annual meeting of shareholders in 2025. 

Snook is a lifelong resident of Washington County, Maryland, where F&M Trust recently opened its 22nd community office, in Hagerstown. He is president and CEO of the Washington County Industrial Foundation; executive director of the Alice Virginia and David W. Fletcher Foundation; and a member of the Maryland State Roads Commission, the Maryland Transportation Commission, the Hagerstown Community College Board of Trustees since 2007 and the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. 

Snook served as president of the Board of County Commissioners of Washington County from 1990-2006, is a past chairman of the Meritus Medical Center Board of Trustees and is a former chairman of the Governor’s Task Force for Alternative Energy. 

“We are thrilled to have Greg join our board of directors,” Timothy G. Henry, president and CEO of F&M Trust, said in a release. “Not only does Greg bring to the board a wealth of experience and knowledge about Hagerstown, Washington County and Maryland, he also has a great understanding of board governance and a strong business acumen.” 

Snook added: “I am very excited about joining the board of directors, and I am looking forward to F&M Trust coming to Washington County and providing a wide variety of financial services to the community,” Snook said. 

With approximately $1.8 billion in assets, F&M Trust has 22 community banking locations in Franklin, Cumberland, Fulton and Huntingdon counties in Pennsylvania, as well as the new office in Hagerstown.
