ELIZABETH, NJ — Union County Savings Bank, a 139-year-old community bank, recently appointed Kelly Watson to its board of directors. Watson currently serves as a vice president and senior partner at IBM Consulting, a position she has had since 2021.

She served as lead director of the board in her final year on the board.
