Randall Black Joins Pennsylvania College of Technology Board of Directors


MANSFIELD, PA (November 2023) Pennsylvania College of Technology's Board of Directors recently expanded with the addition of Randall E. Black, CEO and President of FCCB (First Citizens Community Bank). As a Director, Black will aid the Board as they make decisions that affect the strategic direction of the college. Some key functions and responsibilities typically undertaken by a Director include oversight of financial well-being and monitoring of financial performance. Given Black’s strong background and expertise, he is well-equipped to aid the Board in these crucial areas.


With over three decades of valuable business and accounting expertise under his belt, Black has been an integral part of FCCB since 1993. When he assumed the role of President and CEO in 2004, he took the responsibility of developing an assertive and focused strategic plan for the Bank. At that time, FCCB was operating 15 offices with an asset size of $499 Million. During Black’s tenure the Bank has grown significantly, currently operating 43 offices with an asset size of $2.89 billion.


Black’s influence stretches beyond the realms of finance and academia, as evidenced by his roles as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Bankers Association. Additionally, his role as a member of the Penn State Board of Trustees, resulting from his election by delegates from Agricultural Societies in 2020 and reelection in 2023, showcases his dedication to the broader educational landscape. Black’s appointment to the Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Board of Directors was approved by the Corporation for Penn State. Notably, Penn College operates as a special mission affiliate of Penn State, with its own distinctive board of directors, president, curriculum, and accreditation.


Furthermore, Black's involvement in the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau and the Tioga/Potter Farm Bureau reflects his continued commitment to the agricultural community. Notably, he has over 40 years of practical experience in farming, specializing in the breeding and exhibition of dairy cattle, highlighting his deep-rooted connection to the agricultural sector.
