Dave Dietrich, senior vice president of community banking, spearheaded the broker dealer selection, and said he looks forward to NOVA's continued growth and success with SPF.

Second, SPF is culturally aligned with our ideals, putting customers and relationships first."

Program Manager Steve Franke was brought on board to manage the program. He will be hiring two new financial advisors in 2012 to support and grow the client base.

SPF Chief Executive Officer Valorie Seyfert is equally optimistic about the new relationship. She says, "We understand the extensive research undertaken when selecting a new broker dealer and we are proud to have been chosen. NOVA executives were looking for specific strengths, and winning their business is a testament to our technology solutions and focus on financial institutions. We are excited to add another strong, community-based organization to our client roster, and we look forward to helping NOVA clients reach their investment goals."
