Dawn Malek, Director, Human Resources

“I knew Merchants was the right company for me as soon as I met Kelly (Vice President of Human Resources) and Kathy (Sr. Compensation Specialist). They didn’t even have to talk about the company culture because I knew it was something special just by the way they spoke about the leadership and all the colleagues at Merchants!

I’m very excited to continue my career with an amazing team of officers and colleagues in such a progressive company. I’m looking forward to growing the company with the talented and dedicated officers of Merchants. I have never worked with a more engaged and friendly group of colleagues in any other company,”
