40 under 40: Amanda Misilo

Misilo started working for Commerce Bank as a part-time teller at the age of 19 and became its youngest branch manager four years later. At that branch in Holden, she rose to assistant vice president and then managed the Grafton Street office in Worcester, with both offices realizing record growth and sales and service awards.

She has been involved with Dress for Success Worcester, Grafton Hill Business Association, Worcester CultureLEAP, Junior Achievement, FDIC: Money Smarts, and the United Way's Dollar Scholar program.

By the time I am 50, I would like to have... become a banking executive.

What should older generations know about the up-and-coming workforce? We want to be challenged and feel that our work is making a worthwhile impact on the future.

Where do you get your motivation to succeed? From within. I see every day as a new opportunity to grow and be the best version of myself.

Why do you work in Central Massachusetts? My family has deep roots in the manufacturing industry. I see working here as my chance to make my own mark and give back to the community that has given us so much.
