Lansdale native Jennifer Saverio is a Commercial Lender for Meridian Bank, where she helps business owners finance and grow their companies.
It’s a position she enjoys because it enables her to learn about local companies and to “see how different owners operate their business.”
Saverio, who began working when she was 17 years old at CVS, earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Scranton. She credits Meridian Bank’s Geoff Sheehan, a member of the inaugural class of VISTA Millennial Superstars, for having the biggest impact on her career.
“Geoff has been a great mentor through my career at Meridian Bank,” Saverio said. “He has helped me navigate the path from credit to lending and is a great resource as I continue to develop my skills.”
Her proudest professional achievements are Meridian Bank’s tireless efforts during the Paycheck Protection Program to provide small businesses with the resources they needed to maintain their payroll, hire back employees who may have been laid off, and cover applicable overhead.
“Specifically at the onset of the pandemic and the rollout of the PPP,” said Saverio. “I was very involved with the process and helped businesses secure the funds, which were being exhausted quickly, and receive some certainty during an extremely uncertain time.”
Her favorite Chester County restaurant is Bomba Taco + Bar in Malvern.
Saverio and the rest of the 2022 Class of VISTA Millennial Superstars will be honored at the Awards Reception & Celebration held outdoors on Tuesday, May 10 at Penn State Great Valley. The in-person event will feature food trucks, drinks, touchless registration, a VIP tent, and boundless opportunities to network. It will also be live-streamed.
