Employee Testimonials

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.
