 President's Message

   Happy Spring!

It's been an eventful year so far. Mother nature has sure shown us that winter's not over until she says it is!  The weather hasn't held us back though (except for book club) and we have a lot of momentum as we enter the second quarter of 2018.

I'm excited to get to know new members and those who've circled back after being a part of the Women's Referral Network. I'm reminded of the Maya Angelou quote "Nothing works, unless you do." I am amazed at the hard working, dedicated business women in our organization who are commited to serving their clients and communities.

Your Board is hard at work putting together wonderful events to create and deepen our connections. You won't want to miss our upcoming Speed Networking luncheon, Membership Madness at The Gables and our Special Event in May featuring Pat Ciarrocchi!  

See you at lunch,

Danielle Yoch
President, Women's Business Connection

Diana Mattingly
Tell us about your business: First Resource Bank is a strong, community bank that believes in providing exceptional service, managing your banking needs responsibly, and treating you with respect.  Headquartered in Exton, we are committed to supporting our surrounding towns and neighborhoods.  We only have 2 locations in Exton and West Chester, because most of our clients take advantage of our free technology that allows them to make deposits from the comfort of their home or office.  We also have a great referral program for our business clients, and look to send new business their way.    

Who is a good referral for you? A great referral for me is a small business owner with less than 50 employees that love working with a small bank and desire better options for improving their cash-flow.  We offer different lending options, free check scanners, and Cash Management services allow them to focus more on their business and less on their banking.

What inspired you to join the WBC? I have been a member since 2007, and I joined to build lasting relationships, build my network of great professional women, and to improve my personal development.
Have you done business with any WBC members?  Definitely! I always keep the WBC front of mind for my own needs, and when I listen to the needs of others.  Debi Friedmann helps our bank with fabulous and fun promotional items, and has been a long-time customer of the bank.  Danielle Yoch recently sent me a great referral that turned into a great, new business relationship. Suzanne Young has helped my sister and I with our Pampered Chef needs.  I recently sponsored the annual 5k run for Crime Victims Center of Chester County in April.  I donated a piggy bank stuffed with cash to Chester County Futures to raffle off at their bowling fundraiser in March.  I will be attending the Cyber Security event in April being held by Holly Gill with CSRI.  I am on the Board of Directors for the Exton Region Chamber of Commerce, so I work closely with Laurie Kerkering. Lori Zytkowicz has referred business to me, and I am looking to hold an event at her beautiful Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast this year. 

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time? In my spare time, I love to run, kayak, go on vacation, garden, and watch my boys play sports. 

Tell us about your family: I have been married to my husband Dustin for 18 years, and we have 3 boys Trystan (21), Nicholas (16), and Chase (6). 
Our August Luncheon will feature a Financial Health and Planning Panel to address your most pressing financial questions and concerns.   Your feedback will help us tailor the presentation to what you want to hear about.  Keep an eye out for a survey on this coming soon....
