Valley National Bank, a regional bank with approximately $41 billion in assets, is continuing its expansion into the greater Philadelphia region to provide financial services for growth-oriented small and mid-sized businesses. With a focus on Commercial and Industrial and Commercial Real Estate lending, Valley offers a range of solutions including revolving lines of credit, term loans and mortgages.
“For over 90 years, Valley has helped businesses achieve their financial goals through a relationship-based approach to banking and we see an opportunity to bring personalized service to the Philadelphia region”
Leading Valley’s commercial and industrial lending team in the region is Mark Biedermann, Senior Vice President, Division Head who recently joined the bank. With more than 32 years of commercial banking experience, Biedermann has held several executive and senior management positions at local banks in the Philadelphia region.
“For over 90 years, Valley has helped businesses achieve their financial goals through a relationship-based approach to banking and we see an opportunity to bring personalized service to the Philadelphia region,” commented Biedermann. “Through our customized, high-touch approach, we work side-by-side with businesses to understand the challenges they face and create tailored financing solutions that meet their needs rather than a one-size fits all approach. We not only support our business clients but become active partners in the local community and are looking forward to building our team to bring our client-centric, relationship banking philosophy to this region.”
Joining Biedermann is Mwaura Muroki, Senior Vice President, Commercial Banker. A 20-year veteran of Valley, he specializes in business lending with expertise in debt financing, relationship management, and risk assessments.
Valley’s commercial real estate activities in the region will continue to be spearheaded by Stephen King, Senior Vice President.
