Wausau, Wis. (July 3, 2019) Operations Supervisor Jessica Perry has earned the National Check Professional (NCP) certification from the Electronic Check Clearing House Organization. The designation recognizes professionals who have successfully proven a level of understanding of the current check payments landscape.
“Peoples customers benefit from Jessica’s certification which helps us stay up-to-date on industry standards, especially with fraud and risk reduction,” said Kathy Rein, Peoples State Bank vice president and operations manager. “She joins an elite group of banking professionals by earning this certification.”
Perry currently serves as an operations supervisor at Peoples State Bank’s Stewart Avenue location in Wausau and has been instrumental in all aspects of operations for the bank, including fraud detection. A recent study by the American Bankers Association shows that while the use of checks is declining, check fraud is increasing.
“The NCP designation gives me timely information regarding rules and regulations pertaining to check fraud along with many other financial rules,” said Perry. “The end goal is to keep Peoples in compliance with those rules, while decreasing losses for the bank and most importantly for our customers.”
Perry is also an Accredited Automated Clearing House (ACH) Professional, recognized for electronic payment expertise.
