Day in the life: Grace Pace is in the fast lane at Quontic Bank as the VP of digital banking

Grace Pace is the VP of digital banking at Quontic Bank. This past summer, the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) placed Grace Pace on its annual 40 Under 40: Emerging Community Bank Leaders list, recognizing her as one of the banking industry’s most promising young innovators and influencers. Having spent the majority of her career in banking, usually being the youngest in the room and typically the only female, Pace loves what she does and believes her passion is what’s helped propel her forward.

“Banks typically have been late adopters to technology and innovation — I think I’ve seen that really ramp up,” says Pace. “There’s always new things happening, there are always new ways to think of things. I like to keep learning, keep understanding new things, keep researching. And so for me, you know, that’s why I love what I do.”
