Senior Vice President, First National Bank
Where did you grow up?
South Euclid, Ohio
What is your hockey history?
- Played street hockey as a kid
- Played some pond hockey as an adult
- At the age of 45 played my first game inside the boards — 8 years later I’m still playing twice a week and loving every minute of it
What business are you in now?
I am currently Senior Vice President of Commercial Lending at First National Bank. In my position, I provide middle-market companies throughout Northern Ohio with access to capital.
How has hockey helped you achieve success?
Playing hockey a couple times a week has been great in reducing stress and re-energizing my mind so I can stay as focused as possible with the everyday opportunities and challenges life brings.
Can you share a few fun facts about yourself?
I was anointed with the nickname “Pops” by my college buddies, and it’s a name that has stuck with me to this day.
