“My customers know that I am the liaison between them and the bank, to promote their needs and tell their story to the best of my ability,” says Maria Josephs. “By listening to them, I am better able to provide the services they need.” To promote the TD Bank brand in the community, Josephs manages many of the events put on by the bank’s government-contract lending team.
QUICK TIP: “Treat others as you want to be treated, because customers may forget what you did for them, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.”
“Maria has been a stellar banker to Trowbridge & Trowbridge, LLC (T&T) from nearly the inception of the company. Through her partnership and support, T&T completed two strategic acquisitions and was able to continually invest in its development and future success. Maria’s proactive approach and ability to come through has been a significant factor in the company’s growth and development — tripling in size over six years, with strong financial stability. She is extremely service-oriented and she works tirelessly to exceed her clients’ expectations. Plus, she’s a delightful person and a pleasure to work with. T&T would not be the company it is today had it not been for Maria and her team — she believed in us as a startup business when no other bank was willing to take the risk.” – Karen Trowbridge, President and CEO, Trowbridge & Trowbridge, LLC
