Ward graduated from Muhlenberg College with a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics and also attended RMA (Risk Management Association) Commercial Lending School in Philadelphia, and the Fox Business School (Temple University). He is a board member for Chester County’s Children, Inc., board member and treasurer of Phoenixville Area Soccer Club (PASC), the developer of the first privately financed LEED multi-family mid-rise project in West Philadelphia, and a member of Green Building United.

“Roderick joins a regional team of commercial lenders with nearly 200 years of combined experience between them, and a strong, independent community bank behind them,” said Black. “We believe our Commercial Lending Team is second to none, and we’re confident that given the chance their customers will agree!”
