Former state legislator Jeffrey Coy retired Wednesday from his position as director of Orrstown Financial Services Inc. and Orrstown Bank.
Coy first joined the bank board in 1984 and has served as vice chairman of both boards since 1998.
“Jeff has been instrumental in guiding Orrstown over the past 34 years. His leadership, common sense, and sense of humor will be missed at Orrstown and I count myself lucky to have known him since 1964,” the chairman of the board, Joel R. Zullinger, said in a statement
Elected as a Democrat to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1983, Coy was reelected to 10 subsequent terms, representing the 89th District in Cumberland and Franklin counties.
Following his resignation from the state legislature in September 2004, he was appointed to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in Harrisburg, a position he held until 2011.
Coy also has served on the boards of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education in Harrisburg and Shippensburg University.
“It is nearly impossible to list all of the people and worthy organizations Jeff has impacted through his community involvement,” Orrstown President and CEO Thomas R. Quinn Jr. said in a statement.
Based in Shippensburg, Orrstown Financial has assets of over $1.6 billion and offices in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster and Perry counties, as well as in Maryland.
Orrstown’s subsidiaries include Orrstown Bank and Wheatland Advisors Inc., which it bought in 2016.
