Shaquita Wilson, Bristol County Savings Bank

Success Stories: Shaquita Wilson

In 2016, Shaquita Wilson began her journey in banking and now serves as the AVP-Branch Manager at Bristol County Savings Bank in Cumberland, RI. Her duties encompass leading a team, enabling growth, and helping customers find financial solutions. A graduate in Retail Marketing and Management from Johnson & Wales University, Shaquita’s enthusiasm lies in aiding individuals to achieve financial stability.

Her dedication goes beyond her banking role. Actively supporting local nonprofits such as Old Colony Habitat for Humanity, she also collaborates with the Northern RI Chamber of Commerce Women’s Business Council. Her banking experience has been enriched with opportunities like Leadership Rhode Island.

Shaquita shares, “I owe much to my colleagues and leadership at the Bank who’ve nurtured my confidence and helped me find my voice. As a young Black woman, I understand the unique challenges marginalized communities face, including the ‘imposter syndrome’ often felt in industries with limited diversity in management.” This conviction propels her ongoing advocacy for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in her field and beyond.

The mission of Bank Forward is to empower individuals who may have felt that a career in banking was out of reach.
