MARTINS FERRY — Local resident Don Feenerty recently joined the team of Unified Bank to serve in a new position as Marketing and Community Development executive.
Feenerty has enjoyed a long and varied career in the Ohio Valley. He has operated his own commercial photography business for over 35 years, served as a professor of art and communication at West Liberty University, park director for Pease Township Park District and most recently served as vice president and creative director for Wheelhouse Creative in Pittsburgh and Wheeling.
