arbara Toczko Maculloch treats others as she herself wants to be treated. As the senior vice president and Pennsylvania market director at Community Bank Wealth Management, Maculloch is responsible for the growth of Community’s market in all areas of wealth management in 32 branch locations throughout Luzerne, Lackawanna, Wyoming, Susquehanna, Bradford and Wyoming counties. Maculloch’s banking career began in the early 1980s as a teller at Wyoming National Bank. She worked her way up to district branch market manager over a 10-year period. During that time, she went to college at night and on weekends and earned a business degree from Misericordia University. In the early 1990s, she was recruited to PNC Bank, where her career shifted to private banking in the wealth management group. She advanced to vice president. When her daughter, Rachel, was born in 1999, she took a two-year hiatus, later to return to the field at M&T Bank. In March of 2011, Maculloch was recruited to Community Bank to begin the most challenging, yet rewarding position she says she has ever been happy to have, as the market director of wealth management. Earlier in her career, her most influential mentor was Joe Guyaux, a high-level executive in the banking field. What she admires most about him is that, no matter how successful he is in his career, he has never forgotten his roots and treats every person he meets — in and out of the workplace — with dignity and respect. Currently, Maculloch works with mentors who influence her each and every day. They include the president of the Wealth Management Group, Paul Restante; CEO of Community Bank, Mark Tryniski; and Pennsylvania regional president, Bob Matley.

Personally, the most important mentor of her life is her late mother. “A very important part of my daily life is that both of my late parents were proud of the way that I conduct myself in the lives that I touch and, most of all, that I am as great a mother to my daughter, as they were parents to me,” she says. Maculloch has been fortunate and continues to benefit from being surrounded by “great” people — her late parents, Helen and Gene; her siblings, Mary Ann, Peggy and Gerard; her husband, George; their incredible daughter and grown stepchildren, Bryan and Megan. Throughout the community, she says she has worked with “so many great people,” including Kathy Dunsmuir, Katie Lambert and Barbara and Gerry O’Donnell, in fund-raising and events. “When it comes to fund raising, we’re a force to be reckoned with, but have such a good time doing it we’ll never stop,” she says. She currently serves on the boards of the Osterhout Free Library, Leadership Wilkes-Barre and United Way of Wyoming Valley and is a member of Circle 200. She has served on the Greater WilkesBarre Chamber of Commerce, FM Kirby Center, St. Vincent DePaul Kitchen, Luzerne County Community College, Wyoming County United Way and Volunteers in Medicine boards. Maculloch received the 2007 Leadership Wilkes-Barre Distinguished Alumni award; served as the 2013 annual campaign chair for United Way of Wyoming Valley and has chaired more than 15 events for nonprofit organizations over the last dozen years, helping to raise more than $1.5 million. Her favorite part of the day is walking into her house and being greeted by her husband, daughter Rachel, and dog, Buddy.
