Powell Valley National Bank Promotes Tonya Buchanan

Jonesville, VA – Powell Valley National Bank (PVB, Bank) is pleased to announce the promotion of Tonya Buchanan to Vice President.

Buchanan joined PVB in early 2018 as Electronic Services Administrator working in the Abingdon Loan Production Office. A veteran in the industry, Tonya holds over 35 years of banking experience. She began her career as a drive thru and lobby teller working for a community bank in Abingdon, Virginia, and worked her way up the ranks with promotions over the years to head teller and customer service representative. As interest and demand for online banking and debit cards began to grow in the early 2000s, Tonya transitioned to bank operations, and held a variety of responsibilities in the electronic banking department.

Since joining PVB, Tonya has been instrumental in the launch of many new electronic and digital banking products and services including remote deposit capture, instant issue debit cards, small business bill pay, and Notifi alerts. She manages the bank’s daily ACH origination processes and doubled the number of new ACH customers in just a few years.

“Tonya’s banking experience, combined with her character, dedication and commitment to customer service, supports the core values of PVB,” said Leton L. Harding Jr., President & CEO of PVB. “She has achieved remarkable results in her time with us and we look forward to her continued contribution to our team and the success of our Bank.”

Tonya was born in Abingdon, VA, but raised in Knoxville, TN and is a graduate of Farragut High School. She has one daughter, Kayla, and three grandchildren, Walker, Marlie and Morgan. She resides in Damascus, VA.
