First Reliance Bank recently welcomed new Deposit Operations Manager, Tiffany Kiminski, to join their Charleston-area branch in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

While providing guidance and direction for deposit operation team, Kiminski will work in this role to ensure the bank services its customers in a timely, accurate, and customer-focused way that is consistent with First Reliance’s vision, mission, values, and goals. Specifically, Kiminski will oversee that deposit operations are conducted in total compliance with regulatory and legal requirements, and that all channels are efficient and effective at delivering an exceptional customer experience.

Kiminski joins First Reliance following a 13-year tenure with CresCom Bank, where she most recently served as AVP, Operations & Servicing Consultant, overseeing a host of responsibilities that supported the bank’s internal and personnel development capabilities and processes. Kiminski has expansive banking experience that decorates her nearly 20-year career in the industry, including a variety of technical and customer service roles and responsibilities while with Associated Bank and Superior Savings Banks, prior to joining CresCom.

“Tiffany is one of those well-rounded banking professionals who can bring value from many different vantage points,” said Rick Saunders, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Reliance Bank. “We are excited to have her on board in Charleston, and look forward to seeing where she takes our operations capabilities in the future.”
