Sweeney Joins FCCB Commercial Lending Team in Delaware


MANSFIELD, PA (October 2020) When FCCB acquired MidCoast Community Bank in April of this year, they committed to continuing the dedicated support for local businesses that MidCoast practiced in the market. In September, FCCB announced the addition of two seasoned Business Development Officers to their high performing team of business bankers in the market. And most recently, the Bank welcomed Edward Sweeney to that team, who has over 20 years of experience in business lending roles.   

Prior to joining FCCB, Sweeney served as the Portfolio Manager of WSFS Bank’s Commercial Real Estate Lending Department. He was instrumental in the examination of credit quality across the bank and in the development of new commercial business. He holds a BS from Villanova University in Management with a concentration in International Business. In his role with FCCB, Sweeney will be responsible for developing relationships with businesses throughout Delaware, originating and structuring loans, and executing strategies to grow the bank’s loan portfolio. He maintains expertise across all asset classes of commercial real estate & construction finance, with significant experience lending in Southeastern Pennsylvania (including the Philadelphia metropolitan area), Delaware, and Southern New Jersey. Sweeney is a current member of the Chester County Commercial Industrial Investment Council, the Philadelphia Urban Land Institute, the Philadelphia chapter of the American Meteorological Society, and the National Weather Service’s Skywarn Spotter volunteer program and served previously on the parish council at Holy Cross Church in Springfield, PA.

FCCB entered the Delaware market in the spring of 2020 when they acquired MidCoast Community Bancorp, Inc.  They recently announced the opening of their 31st full-service office in Kennett Square, PA, which allows them to bridge the gap between their Lancaster County Office in Fivepointville and the Delaware branches located in Wilmington and Dover.  

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.
