About the video

Retaining talent and recruiting the next generation of bankers, especially the Millennial generation, is critical to our industry’s sustainability and future leadership.

This was the challenge we chose to take on with help from the Fund for Economic Growth. Earlier this year, we embarked on a video project aimed at telling the real stories of Pennsylvania’s young bankers and their careers.

We wanted real, honest and unscripted answers, and we got them. These seven young professionals not only wowed us, but they affirmed what we already knew and hoped would shine through: our future is bright, it’s energetic, it’s enthusiastic, and it’s rooted in the core principles of banking that will always remain, generation after generation -- Customer Service, Community Engagement and Dedication to the Industry.
