RBJ’s Power 30 Banking & Finance

RBJ’s Power 30 Banking & Finance

The Rochester Business Journal’s inaugural Power List program continues this week with our Power 30 Banking & Finance.

The list includes individuals who have spent the past 20 months helping members of the Rochester community navigate increasingly uncertain financial circumstances.

The people on this list have helped Rochester’s banking and finance industry reimagine itself to serve customers virtually, keep businesses open and keep families in their homes. They have kept their clients apprised of new rules and regulations, financing options, investment opportunities and more. They have pushed innovation forward to deal with the challenges of COVID-19 and have led the way through a period of tremendous uncertainty.

As with our previous Power Lists, this one is presented in alphabetical order. And again, rather than tell you about all of these power players’ accomplishments and accolades, we decided to give them a chance to tell you more about themselves through their answers to a few different questions.

I welcome any feedback you have at [email protected].
