TRANSFORMATIVE GIVING

Walking for the Common Good

“Banks, like hospitals, are the cornerstones of their communities,” says Rob Rey, President and CEO of Englewood-based NVE Bank. Founded in 1887, NVE has a long history of serving the people of Bergen County, and Mr. Rey says it is no coincidence that the mutual bank finds common cause in supporting the efforts of the EHMC Foundation through the Walk for Awareness. The bank has raised more than $4,000 for EHMC through the Walk so far.

“There is a natural synergy between a community bank and a community medical center,” he says. In many ways, NVE practices “humanistic” banking. “We view our members as people, not numbers. As EHMC caters to individual health needs of unique patients, we develop supportive relationships through every stage of life. From the birth of a baby to saving for college, buying the first home, all the way to retirement, we are there right next to them. It is not about the single transaction; it is about the relationship with the person.”
