Troy A. Peters
President & CEO
Jonestown Bank & Trust Company
Peters oversees the strategic direction and execution of the 147-year-old community bank and its policies to best serve its clients, employees, communities and create value for the bank’s shareholders.
He’s been in banking for 30-years, and in his current position for 10-years.
He is proud to have served as the chairperson of our state trade group, the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers. “Through that organization, I influenced the passage of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S.2155) that balanced regulatory relief and consumer protections,” he said. The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act was passed by the US Congress, becoming a law in 2018.
Peters said the most important life lesson he’s learned is “you’ll never regret working hard and doing your best.”
He enjoys riding motorcycles, both locally and on longer trips. Peters currently owns three bikes, and each provides a different riding experience. “Riding is freeing and relaxing while at the same time a very focused activity and one that you can always improve upon!” he said.
