Centric Bank Promotes Pavlakovich To SVP, Chief Human Resources Officer

Centric Financial Corporation, the parent company of Centric Bank, and Centric Bank have promoted Christine Pavlakovich, SHRM-SCP, to senior vice president, chief human resources officer, announced Patricia (Patti) A. Husic, president and CEO. Pavlakovich has been a human resources executive at Centric Bank since 2017.

Responsible for the human resources, employee well-being, and workplace environment needs of a 135-person workforce, Pavlakovich’s promotion coincided with the outbreak of COVID-19. The global pandemic has created human resources challenges across every industry, but Pavlakovich serves on the bank's business continuity team and ensures a continuous flow of health and safety information for employees and their families as they work from home or in a financial center.

"Since joining Centric Bank three years ago, it's been a privilege to help build The Centric Bank Way culture initiative and demonstrate how organizational culture impacts the productivity, purpose, and passion for our work," said Pavlakovich. "In these last several weeks, our entire team has demonstrated an incredible depth of compassion and commitment to our customers, a personal responsiveness to customer needs, and exemplary service not only to our communities but to each other."

"Since the pandemic, Christine and her team are providing more information more frequently and paying even closer attention to mental health awareness and offering stress-reducing and coping strategies to meet the challenges of every work environment," Husic said in a statement.

A member of the winning American Banker Most Powerful Women in Banking Top Team for two consecutive years, Pavlakovich has over 26 years' experience as a human resources professional, 16 years in the financial institution industry, and is certified as a senior-level human resource professional through the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to coming to Centric Bank in 2017, she led the human resources department at Metro Bank in Harrisburg, Penn. She serves on the boards of the Cleve J. Fredricksen Library and Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania.
