What does he love about banking and more specifically, banking at Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan?  We’ll let him answer in his own words…

“I have loved every minute of my banking career.  I really get to understand the businesses I work with.  I go to them, I get to know the details of their day to day business. I have found that this process makes it easier for me to make loan presentations to our board on their behalf.  What is great is that within the flexibility of a small bank environment, the loan process becomes more than a 10 point check list.  We are able to look at the economic struggles the business may have faced and look beyond them to see that they are survivors and we can help them keep surviving.”
