“In today’s lending market the ability to think “outside of the box” is a must, and the ability to work for a Bank that encourages this type of approach to lending is a pleasure,” commented Ms. Gendels. “To be recognized for my work, and in the company of such an outstanding group of professional women, is truly an honor.”
