Monthly Business Partner Spotlight

Tom May and Amanda Constable, Relationship Managers representing Citizens Bank Student Loans in PA, DE, NJ, WV.

Tom May: Can’t believe it’s almost five years since I joined the Citizens Student Lending Team and 25 years with Citizens Bank all total. One of my favorite things about the RM position is that I get to work with the great people of PASFAA. I am currently serving my second time on the Conference Committee. I love helping FA offices to meet the needs and dreams of our college students. When not visiting a school I am helping our branches meet the same dreams of our customers. When not working I enjoy my 5 grand kids, golf, and you may just see me on stage playing guitar at some of the local establishments.

Amanda Constable: I began as a work study student in a financial aid office in 2000, and from there my entire professional career in higher education and student lending began! Before coming to Citizens Bank in September, I worked in Villanova University’s Office of Financial Assistance for 8+ years, so PASFAA has been close to my heart for quite some time. I am lucky to have the opportunity to work closely with many of you as we help our students reach their goals. When I’m not on the road visiting my school clients and retail branches , I am home in Swarthmore, PA with my husband, Chris and our two daughters, Adeline (9) and Hensley (3).
