Farmers & Merchants Bank (F&M) is pleased to announce that senior vice president and regional manager Scott Dowds and his wife Jane were named the 2013 Man and Woman of the Year by the YWCA of North Orange County.
Together, the Dowds’ joined forces to make a positive impact in North Orange County through community service, while raising three children and pursing full-time careers.
Scott, who has worked for F&M for nearly two decades, is the senior vice president and regional manager of the Fullerton, Santa Ana, Orange and Garden Grove offices. A fixture in North Orange County, Scott is the current past president of the Fullerton Rotary Board of Directors and previous chairman of the Fullerton Chamber of Commerce.
