Dixon-based First Northern Bank announced the promotion of Gwendolyn “Gwyn” Runnels to senior vice president of sales and deposits.

The promotion recognizes her “exceptional business and management skills,” a news release said.

Runnels joined First Northern as a business services officer in August 1999 and was promoted to vice president/Fairfield financial services manager in April 2006. Three years later, she was appointed vice president/business services officer for the Fairfield and Vacaville markets, a responsibility she continued to hold after she was named vice president/sales and deposit manager in 2010.

In her new position, Runnels is responsible for planning and managing the growth of the bank’s demand-deposit portfolio. She will continue to supervise First Northern’s business services officers and private bankers, and will continue working closely with the bank’s senior loan officer.

Runnels was previously employed by Sierra West Bank and its predecessor, Continental Pacific Bank, as a customer service manager after she retired from the U.S. Air Force as chief of Wing Administration for the 60th Military Airlift Wing. Runnels’ banking and military experience helped her develop extensive management skills, which she uses to their full advantage to manage the customer service and sales functions of First Northern Bank.

Runnels is a member and past distinguished president of the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield. In May 2008, she was presented with the Distinguished Community Service Award by Kiwanis International. Runnels is a member and past executive board member of the Fairfield/Suisun Chamber of Commerce and a member of Soroptimist International of Central Solano County. She serves on the North Bay Healthcare Board, mentors teenage girls, teaches self-esteem classes and is a church mother and Sunday school teacher.

Runnels has lived in Fairfield since the early 1980s with her husband Matthew; they have a grown daughter.

First Northern Bank serves Yolo, Solano, Sacrament and Placer counties and the west slope of El Dorado County. For more information, visit www.thatsmybank.com.
