K. Leon Moyer to Receive Pillar Award June 18, 2015
K. Leon Moyer, retired President and CEO of Univest Bank and Trust Co. will be honored as the 2015 Pillar of the Community by the Greater Harleysville and North Penn Senior Services during its annual dinner on Thursday, June 18 at the William Penn Inn, Gwynedd. Leon is being recognized for his 44 years of strong leadership at Univest Bank and Trust Co. and outstanding service to our local community.
Leon started with Univest as a management trainee in 1971 and quickly found his passion for helping others. Whether he was serving as a Branch Manager, a Commercial Loan Officer, Chief Credit Officer, Chief Operating Officer or President and CEO, he never lost sight of the importance of getting to know his customers, aligning financial solutions to meet their individual needs and serving the local community.
Throughout Leon’s 44 years at Univest, he earned the respect of customers, employees, community leaders and peers across the financial services industry for his integrity, compassion, attention to detail and unwavering commitment. In addition to his day-to-day responsibilities, Leon shared his expertise and leadership with 14 different organizations as he volunteered on boards and committees.
Leon provided 18 years of leadership in various capacities on the Dock Woods Community board of directors. As Chairman, an historic event brought forth the affiliation of Dock Woods and Souderton Mennonite Home to create Living Branches. Leon remained chairman of the new combined board and served in that capacity for another two years. In 2008 he chaired the North Penn United Way Campaign and in 2013 was honored as a North Penn United Way Super Hero. Leon’s local community service included volunteer work with the Indian Valley Boys & Girls Club and Indian Creek Foundation. Leon has been a member of Souderton-Telford Rotary for 12 years and continues to remain active in retirement. During his career, he was also active with various chambers of commerce and served on the boards of directors for the Indian Valley Chamber and the Central Bucks Chamber.
Leon’s service extended to organizations focused on education and faith – two of his passions. He was on the board of directors for Penn View Christian School and on the board of associates for Messiah College. Leon held various leadership roles at Souderton Mennonite Church and served on the finance committee for Spruce Lake Retreat. Passion for the community and banking go hand-in-hand. Univest’s culture of giving enabled Leon to reach out to the neighborhoods in which he lives and works to make a difference. In addition to his service to various nonprofit organizations throughout our region, Leon was equally dedicated to giving back to the banking industry.
Leon was involved with the Pennsylvania Bankers Association for 10 years, serving on the board of directors, and policy and advisory committees. In addition, he shared his expertise as Chairman of the Board for the Political Action Committee. Leon is a lifetime member of the Risk Management Association, an organization in which he served on the Community Bank Council, as a board member for the Philadelphia Chapter and also Chapter Chairman for the East Central PA Chapter.
A humble man, Leon is quick to tell you he was blessed with many opportunities that were possible because of his mentors who taught him how to become a trusted leader, the support he received from his wife and family and the culture at Univest that enabled him to live out his dream of making a difference in the lives of others.
We look forward to honoring Leon and his outstanding service to the greater Harleysville and North Penn region on June 18 at 6:00 p.m. at the William Penn Inn. He is truly a pillar of our community from which we can all learn a lot. We hope you will join us! For more information on tickets, please call Encore Experiences at 215-256-6900.
