Joseph Burns tells us how he joined Valley and why it's been so rewarding.

Q: Describe your career path to your current position at Valley.

A: I joined Valley in 2012 via Valley’s acquisition of a regional bank in Long Island.  At the time of the acquisition, I was a Vice President & Team Leader, where I managed a team of Commercial Lenders on Long Island. Only a few years and a lot of hard work later and I was promoted within Valley to Senior Vice President, Division Head of Commercial Lending for Long Island, Brooklyn & Queens.

Q: What makes working at Valley so rewarding?

A: What I like the most about Valley is the culture of the Bank.  While we have grown as an institution, we have preserved a community bank approach and recognize that the customer is the center of all that we do. Valley’s strong corporate values are evidenced in our perpetual commitment to our customers, employees, and communities.
