2022 40 Under 40: Joe Driscoll

SFC Bank

Posted online

Joe Driscoll, 35, helps people find solid ground in this extended period of uncertainty.

At Springfield First Community Bank, that looks like helping administer federal Paycheck Protection Program funds to worried business owners looking to protect their employees and keep their companies afloat. In the community, that’s serving as treasurer for nonprofit boards, such as his current role at Dynamic Strides Therapy, where he helped review revenue streams during the pandemic and led the nonprofit to its next phase of growth. At home, that’s being the grounding force for his wife and four children.

“[The pandemic] was an opportunity to deepen relationships with community members and bring people together in trying times,” he says.

Proudest moment? The birth of each of my four children. It was humbling and exceptionally exciting to hold each of them after so much anticipation.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? “If it’s to be it’s up to me.” It reminds me to avoid procrastination and to quickly take action to control the items within my control to ensure the best outcome.

What historical figure do you identify with most? Teddy Roosevelt. I appreciate his boldness, love for life and all good people in it, and his admiration for the outdoors.
