2015 YP of the Year: Trista Sotelo

Category : YP of the Year

YPN, or the Young Professionals Network is a key organization in our community that strives to create a great place for young professionals to grow and network professionally while building confidence in their personal selves. YPN’s goal is to provide a welcoming, supporting network which continues to promote Muscatine as a great place to live and work.

Each year, YPN recognizes one member who has proven to be a great role model as well as someone who relentlessly gives back to the Muscatine community. Please join me and YPN in honoring our YP of the Year for 2015, Trista Sotelo.

Trista’s professional career with CBI Bank & Trust (formerly Central State Bank) began in June of 2003 and she was named an Assistant Vice President in 2013. Outside of her many duties with CBI Bank & Trust, Trista is a Junior Achievement volunteer and also serves on the boards of the Flickinger Learning Center and Happy Time Preschool.

Trista has been involved with YPN since 2008 and has been leading the group for the last two years. This year will be Trista’s last as Chair of YPN. Her next assignment will be assisting the new Chair as they learn the ropes and continue to build our group.
