Karen Peterman has served as Client Relationship Manager for The Affiliation Program since 2012, and she has worked for Sheshunoff companies in various capacities for over 25 years. She began her tenure with Sheshunoff as part of Sheshunoff Information Services (SIS). After graduating from the University of Texas and having a career in production and graphic design for several years, she shifted her focus to sales and began working for SIS as a purveyor of publications for the banking industry.
Karen held various positions at the company in the years following and continued with SIS when the company was sold to Thomson Financial. After a period of time, she accepted a position at AlexInformation, another Sheshunoff company that provided publications to the financial services industry. When AlexInformation changed ownership, she began working for BankersWeb in webinar and certification program sales, and then later transitioned to her current role as part of the Affiliation team.
One of the things that Karen enjoys the most about being part of the Affiliation team is developing and cultivating long-term relationships with our Affiliation Program members. She is proud to be a part of the Sheshunoff brand, which has and always will be dedicated to the success of community bankers nationwide. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Austin, and has also attained the designation of Macrobiotic Chef from the Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts in Austin.
