The Company

Our client is a well-established, financially-sound financial services firm delivering innovative, digitally-enabled financial solutions for businesses and consumers. Through multi-channel delivery (retail and online), the firm delivers a full suite of commercial and treasury services for business clients as well as loans and other consumer financial services critical to all aspects of financial health. In 2018, the company’s culture and performance were recognized by local business leaders as consistently demonstrating growth, sustainability, a positive company culture and a record for giving back to the community.
