TOMPKINS COMMUNITY BANK’S CENTRAL NEW YORK MARKET  

ITHACA, NY (April 10, 2023) – Tompkins Community Bank announced that Johanna Anderson has been appointed to president of the bank’s Central New York (CNY) market.  Currently, Anderson serves as executive director of Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services (INHS).  In addition, she has been a member of the Tompkins CNY board of directors for the past three years, offering strategic insight and organizational expertise in line with the bank’s goals and mission. In her new role, she will be responsible for the bank’s growth, community and client engagement and stakeholder relations throughout its Central New York market, as well as fostering relationships with clients of Tompkins insurance and wealth affiliates.  Her official appointment at Tompkins will begin on July 10, prior to which she will remain at INHS to ensure a smooth transition of leadership. 

“Johanna has a proven ability to lead organizations to success with passion, diverse expertise, and a growth mindset,” said Daniel Fessenden, chair of Tompkins’ Central New York Board of Directors. “She has been an invaluable asset to our board in her three years of service, and we know she will bring the same fervor for success to her new position.” 

Anderson is well-known throughout the community for her expertise in residential and consumer lending and affordable housing development work, as well as her advocacy for financial education. Over the course of her career, she has accumulated deep experience in commercial real estate development and management, organizational strategy and stakeholder communication. In her more than five years as executive director of INHS, Anderson has actively led the mission to build affordable housing developments, as well as support homeowners and renters with financial and maintenance services.  In her prior position, she served as the chief credit officer of Home HeadQuarters, Inc., where she managed the process and production of all lending products and oversaw the development of credit approval processes. She also spent six years as the director of community development for Four Directions Development Corporation, a nonprofit that seeks to improve the social and economic conditions of the Native American tribes through education and investment in affordable housing, tribal business ventures, banking the unbanked and entrepreneurship.  

“Johanna brings a unique and impressive portfolio of experience to Tompkins, paired with a tangible desire to build toward growth while fostering economic wellness in the communities we serve,” said John McKenna, president of Tompkins Community Bank. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with such an impressive leader and am eager to see the positive impact she will have on our Tompkins team.”
