Blair Groves 2The Whitlock Company recently hired Blair Groves in the Community Banking Group as a Loan Review Specialist.

According to Community Banking Partner Tom Beisner, “Blair will provide key insights for our community bank clients due to her experience as a former Bank Examiner for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).”

Blair spent three years working for the OCC, which is an independent bureau within the United States Department of the Treasury that serves to charter, regulate and supervise all national banks and financial institutions. With her experience and in-depth knowledge in this field, Blair will be an asset to community banking clients by helping them increase profitability, while also meeting all regulatory requirements.

Blair earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Accounting and Minor in Global Studies in 2009 from Drury University. The Whitlock Company is proud and excited to have her join our team, offering our clients exceptional guidance.

The Whitlock Company consistently gains national and local attention as an excellent employer. The trade publication Accounting Today ranked The Whitlock Company as one of the “Best Accounting Firms to Work For,” in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. And the Springfield Business Journal nominated them as a Choice Employer in 2011.
