Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV), a regional financial cooperative serving agriculture and rural communities, has announced the upcoming retirement on September 28 of long-time employee Linda Whitmer.
Whitmer has worked for FCV for 13 years as a loan assistant, working with customers to ensure complete and accurate documentation to facilitate efficient closing of their loans. She began her career in retail operations for a large furniture manufacturer before shifting to the banking sector. In all, her career has spanned 48 years.
“It’s been very satisfying to be able to add value to Farm Credit and deliver quality service to our customers,” Whitmer said. “The organization feels very much like family, and our relationships with our customers are also very close and meaningful.”
Whitmer currently resides in the Village of Singers Glen, Virginia. She spent part of her youth on a diversified livestock operation in Riverton, West Virginia, after spending many years moving around with her military family. She attended Blue Ridge Community College. After retirement, she plans to continue managing a small herd of feeder cattle with her husband, along with other recreational pursuits.
