LIMERICK PA – Tom Thunstrom, assistant vice president and manager of the Limerick branch of Penn Liberty Bank, and Karen Higgins, president of A & E Communications Inc. in Collegeville, have joined the board of directors of the Pottstown-based TriCounty Community Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving regional health, social and environmental conditions.
TriCounty partners with non-profits, businesses and community members to serve western Montgomery, northern Chester and eastern Berks counties. “TCN continues to grow,” said Jen Doyle, executive director for TCN. “Karen and Tom have both the business and non-profit experience to help us continue this upward momentum.”
Higgins in 2003 founded A & E Communications, a marketing communications firm that works with small and mid-sized organizations. Previously, she was vice president of public relations at TMP Worldwide, where she provided public relations services to a wide range of clients for 10 years.
Thunstrom has nearly nine years of bank management experience, spending three years with a regional bank in Minneapolis before relocating to Montgomery County to join PNC Bank in early 2001. After several years there, he joined financial education non-profit Operation HOPE in 2005; and then Penn Liberty in March 2011.
