FCCB Commercial Banking Team Dedicated to Area Businesses


MANSFIELD, PA (August 2020) Since the acquisition of MidCoast Community Bank in April of this year, FCCB has been committed to providing support for local businesses throughout the region. To do this, they’ve cultivated a robust Commercial Banking team full of individuals who have the experience, training, and knowledge that allow them to proactively recognize opportunities to help businesses prosper.

Bill Lattanzio, SVP, Chief Banking Officer believes his Commercial Banking team’s advantage is their ability to become a trusted advisor to their clients. “Our depth of experience allows us to be proactive,” stated Lattanzio. “Our Commercial Bankers take an integrated approach to help our clients connect the dots from where they are, to where they can go, recommending solutions to help them get there. We recently added Anthony Manerchia and Jon Reese, two highly experienced commercial lenders to our team, to further support our commitment to the Delaware business community.”  

Anthony Manerchia, SVP, Chief Banking Officer, joined FCCB to assume management of the Commercial Banking team as Lattanzio takes on a consulting role later this year. Manerchia has spent 25-years in banking, managing commercial and retail offices, and specializing in commercial and small business lending. Prior to FCCB, he worked for Bryn Mawr Trust Co., First Bank of Delaware, Sun National Bank, and at Wilmington Trust Co. Manerchia has a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Wilmington University. He belongs to the Committee of 100 and the Commercial-Industrial Realty Council. Manerchia is also a board member of the Delaware Military Academy.

Jon Reese VP, Business Development Officer, has been in banking for 22 years, and for many years he has focused on commercial real estate transactions throughout the state of Delaware. Reese has experience analyzing real estate development projects involving the acquisition, construction, repositioning, and refinancing of industrial, retail, residential, and flex properties in the Wilmington area. He graduated from California State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and is a board member of the Committee of 100, ULI Delaware, and the Commercial-Industrial Realty Council of Delaware.

Other members of the FCCB Commercial Banking Team include Jeff Flanders, VP, who has 34 years of experience as a commercial lender and is the Treasurer and Executive Committee Member of Autism Delaware. Jose Colon, VP, has 25 years of experience in all aspects of commercial banking services and a focus on the Hispanic Community. Colon served on a variety of non-profit boards including Pathstone/ABH, La Comunidad Hispana, Southern Chester County Chamber and Longwood Rotary. Kevin Essingler, VP, brings 21 years of banking experience to the team along with Jeremey Abelson, VP, who has 34 years in banking under his belt.

FCCB entered the Delaware market in the spring of 2020 when they acquired MidCoast Community Bancorp, Inc. The three community bank offices, located in Wilmington and Dover, are only 45-miles from FCCB’s Fivepointville Office in Lancaster County, PA. Since December of 2015, FCCB has expanded its footprint south of Interstate 80 through acquisitions and the opening of new offices. In four years, they’ve taken up residence in Lebanon, Lancaster, Schuylkill, Berks, Union and Centre counties in PA, and Kent and New Castle Counties in Delaware.

First Citizens Community Bank (FCCB) offers a strong line of mortgage and real estate loans, high-interest rewards checking, trust and investment services, and cash management services that help businesses save time and money. They are headquartered in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, and currently operate 31 offices throughout Tioga, Bradford, Potter, Clinton, Centre, Union, Lebanon, Lancaster, Schuylkill, Berks, and Chester counties in Pennsylvania, Allegany County, New York, and New Castle, and Kent Counties in Delaware.
