Branch Manager Corner
Name: Serach Tansman
Title: J Street Branch Manager
Serach is one of our newest Branch Managers, serving members in our Downtown Sacramento branch – on J Street in the Army Corps of Engineers' building. She brings years of member service and branch management experience to First U.S., and we're thrilled to have her lead the team at our Sacramento flagship location. Welcome Serach!
We sat down with Serach recently, and asked about her favorite parts of the job. "Being able to strengthen relationships and member interactions, and developing a stellar team," are what she enjoys. She added that, "having the opportunity to help, educate, and make a member's day brighter is what I really enjoy."
Making a difference for her members, Serach focuses her team on superior service with coaching. "My team can stay focused on excellent service, and deliver it consistently, when we discuss interactions –the positive ones and the less than stellar," she said. "I like to have a brief conversation with a team member, sharing my impressions of a positive member service experience, or working with them to think about the pros and cons so that they can selfdiscover ways to bring the service to the next level." She concluded, “I also try to make our branch the place where everyone is eager to come to work. If they are happy to be there, they will want to deliver the best for our members.”
