Our newest TV ads feature our wonderful branch managers as well as our president and CEO Mike Horodyski. We’ve spent some time on the blog recently talking about our community and how much we love our communities. Today we thought we would spend some time getting to know our leader since he really is the driving force behind our focus on community.
Getting to know Mike Horodyski, President and CEO of Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan:
Mike has been in banking for 20 years and spent the last 7 years with Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan. He started in community banks shortly after graduating from Marist College. After working for a short time on the New York Stock Exchange, Mike realized he was much more at home working in the local area where he grew up. Mike has held various positions within the auditing and lending functions until finally finding his home at Wallkill Valley Federal.
What does Mike love about his job? We’ll let him tell us:
“The best part of my job is helping people. Being able to get them financing, get them into a new home, help them open a savings account or make banking easier for them. It is great knowing that I am helping to do good things for the people within our community.”
What does Mike think is special about Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan?
“At Wallkill, we work really hard to put community first. From myself, to the branch managers and all the way down to the tellers, you can trust that your local bank will work really hard to find solutions for you. We work with our customers one on one. If you have questions, you know that my door is always open and I’ll do my best to help you find answers.”
What about the Mike you meet when he is not working?
Mike fancies himself a regular guy; he enjoys playing golf and hanging out by his pool with family and friends. A little known fact about Mike is he is an accomplished Kan Jam and Corn Hole player and would be happy to entertain a game with anyone.
