At a ceremony earlier this month, Citizens Financial Group CEO Bruce Van Saun unveiled 75 specially inscribed bricks honoring colleagues who have been with the bank for 25 years. The bricks, each bearing the name of an honoree – including Wheelersburg resident Debra Howard – will be installed outside Citizens’ headquarters at One Citizens Plaza. More than 2,000 colleagues have been honored with bricks since the bank started the tradition in 1999.

The brick dedication was held as part of Citizens’ Credo Week celebration, which recognizes colleagues’ hard work on behalf of the bank’s customers and local communities. Rhode Island Congressman Jack Reed and Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline joined company executives in congratulating honorees and their families at the ceremony.
