Q&A with Featured Hockey Players in Business Member: Greg Ferrazza

Greg Ferrazza

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.
