Mariners Moving Up

The 1st Mariner Bank team is like a family. That's why we like to give employees the training and encouragement they need to move their way up the 1st Mariner ladder as they expand their product knowledge, develop their skills and enhance their value to their teams. To support advancement from within, all openings for positions are listed on our internal job site.

Below are a few stories from 1st Mariner employees who are taking advantage of our opportunities for career growth and advancement.


        "I started my career with 1st Mariner Bank in April 2006 as a customer service representative at our Loch Raven branch. I have been given the opportunity to act as a head teller for the Towson-Loch Raven branch and from there I was promoted to be an Assistant Branch Manager in 2009. 1st Mariner Bank represents a platform for me. I have been able to develop both professionally and personally because of the many experiences 1st Mariner Bank has afforded me. I have also been given the gift of learning with several different training courses offered as well as continuing to develop my banking knowledge with support from the institution and mentors I have had the opportunity to work with. I feel lucky to have the chance to work for 1st Mariner Bank because of all the people that have helped me to grow and suceed." 

- Judith E. Rivera de Franco, Assistant Branch Manager II, Towson-Loch Raven Branch

          "My current title is deposit operation manager, VP. I started my career with 1st Mariner Bank in 1995 as a teller at our Canton branch. I was then promoted and transferred to our Loch Raven branch where I worked as an assistant branch manager. I later accepted a new position at our headquarters office in Canton as an operations specialist to supply support and guidance to our branches and departments within our bank. I have been working in our Operations department for over 20 years and have since been promoted three more times to deposit operation manager, VP, where I still reside today. I have truly been supported by my peers and management team. Our culture at 1st Mariner Bank is to succeed. The recognition and encouragement given to me throughout the years has allowed me to move ahead in my career path."

- Patti Vaughn, Deposit Operation Manager, Vice President

"Prior to beginning my position as an internal auditor with 1st Mariner, I started at the White Marsh branch as a teller in June of 2014. At the time, I had a bachelor's degree in accounting, and I was working on my master's degree. I had no banking experience, but I thought to myself if I could get in with 1st Mariner perhaps I could put my education to work if I were able to progress at the company. With the immense help from management at my branch, I was able to secure a position in the Audit department. Auditing was something that interested me while I was in school and I had decided to pursue it as my career moving forward. There is a great sense of security in knowing you work for a company that is not only willing to foster their employee's professional growth, but also eager to do so. I am very thankful for the opportunities afforded to me in my time with 1st Mariner Bank, and I look forward to what the future holds." 

- Matthew Mayle, Auditor
