Life at Forbright
Forbright Bank, headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, is a full-service bank, commercial lender, and asset manager committed to accelerating the transition to a sustainable, clean energy economy. We are reimagining how a bank should operate in a changing world. We even offer employee incentives for purchasing home solar panels, leasing/buying an electric vehicle, taking public transportation, biking to work, and more!
Our culture is dynamic, high energy, fun, and fast-paced with an exciting growth trajectory, meaningful mission, and embedded responsible environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices into our daily interactions. We offer our team members a culture of collaboration, inclusion, flexibility, recognition, and giving back. We look to hire individuals that are passionate about our mission, and who are motivated, customer and results-oriented, innovative, adaptable, and thoughtful.
Forbright is committed to cultivating an environment that promotes diversity as a fundamental value. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our team members invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and the Bank’s achievement.
I joined the organization in 2013 and have had the opportunity to work on a lot of exciting initiatives across the bank in addition to my core responsibilities. Most recently, I helped build out and now lead our ESG (environmental, social and governance) initiatives across the organization. Two of the things I value most at Forbright are: (1) the smart and collaborative people I’ve gotten to work alongside and (2) the culture of thinking outside the box, producing a high-quality product and maintaining work/life balance.
Forbright presents a unique opportunity to work for a company that is both rapidly expanding but also maintains that small company feel and culture that is so important to fostering success for all its employees. I truly believe every individual from top to bottom plays a vital role in the company’s growth and it has been incredibly rewarding to see those efforts come to fruition during my four years here at Forbright.
