Meet Jagjiwan Singh, Assistant Vice President and Business Development Officer.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I enjoy spending time with my kids – taking them to the park, playing soccer or most recently taking my younger son to the baseball diamond. On the weekends I participate at my local temple in Norwalk, where I help serve food to the community. I’m also a big fan of basketball – Go Knicks!
What is your favorite part of your role at First County Bank?
I enjoy spending time with business owners and learning about their specific business needs as well as assisting them any way I can to help their business grow.
What is the most frequent question you receive from customers?
“What are the rates and fees?”
What advice would you give someone looking to start or further develop their business?
If you’re looking to further develop your business, don’t underestimate your Business Relationship Manager. Always work closely with them, as they are experts in this field.
What success story can you share of how a business has benefited from a financial solution?
My most recent client success story relates to our BusinessFirst Express Loan. I had the opportunity of assisting a client who received a bid for a large project, but didn’t have enough funds to purchase materials. They were also limited on time, which added extra pressure to the project. Due to the BusinessFirst Express product, we found a solution for them via a BusinessFirst Express Line of Credit and got them approved and funded within a week!
