Metro City Bank SVP, Human Resources Manager Valerie Pendergast was inspired by the dynamics of an organization and how every team member makes a difference at her first job at a credit card payment processing center. “I learned that no matter what I do, I must do it to the best of my ability because it reflects on everyone I work with, including the organization itself,” she says. This realization led to applying for a position in HR, which has become her passion. “I enjoy helping people thrive in what they do, having the business succeed with my partnership and implementing a well-thought-out human resources strategy,” she says. The GBA HR Committee Chair shares about going back to college, learning from everyone she has worked with, the resiliency of the banking industry and more in her GBA Member Profile.
