Employee Spotlight: Get to know Ryan Conner

Ryan Conner, Community Banking Manager

Meet The Team-Ryan Conner

Posted on Jan 03, 2022

1. What is your FCB Bank story?

My story started in 2015 when I started as a Community Banking Associate.  Previously I had been in restaurant and retail management, so banking was new and exciting!  I have held positions as Community Banking Associate, Bank Center Manager Trainee, Community Banking Specialist, and Community Banking Manager.  I am currently the manager of the Crestwood Branch. 

2. What do you love about working here?

What don’t I love about working here!  The best part of working here is getting to build relationships with people who care about Frederick.  I do love being part of a tradition spanning 165 years dedicated to making people’s dreams come true. Anytime I get to hear about a new project that someone wants to build, or that someone wants to start, it’s exciting to me.  My intuition is I want to help them any way I can.    

3. What activities do you enjoy doing outside of the office? 

I enjoy giving back to the community that has accepted, and given so much to me and my family:
I am a member of the Board of Trustees at The Banner School.
I am a member of the Standing Committee at Community Living Inc.
I am a Frederick County Resource Parent (Foster Parent).

4. Why should people bank at a community bank?

“People should bank at a community bank for the service.  It is also well known that when you bank with a community bank there is a better chance more funds will be redistributed into your local community.  A community bank works hard to partner with key local businesses who know what the community needs.  As a community banking manager, I do my best to find solutions to my customer’s everyday needs in a timely manner.”

5. What are some of your favorite local activities or restaurants? 

Frederick has one of the best restaurant, and brewery scenes around.  We love The Wine Kitchen on the Creek, Isabella’s, and Hooch & Banter.  We have been known to frequent Frederick Social as well.  Rockwell Brewery and Monocacy Brewery are also on my list for places that I enjoy spending my time.  Most of all I just enjoy spending time with my family.  We do love carnival season and Fair Week in Frederick.
