Meet Thomas Berta, manager of branch sales and service at First County Bank.
Tell us a little about yourself – feel free to include information about your family, hobbies and/or involvement in the community:
I have been in banking for 20 years, specializing in helping branches improve customer experience and customer engagement. I have a beautiful wife, Donna, to whom I’ve been married for 19 years and two teenage sons, Taylor and Evan, who are extremely active with sports. I’ve spent many years working the Shrub Oak Athletic Club and the Bombers Baseball Club coaching my boys various baseball teams and, when I have free time, I enjoy traveling and playing golf.
What is the favorite part of your role with First County Bank?
I have the privilege of working with the finest group of bankers I’ve seen in my 20 years (which has spanned the states of CT, NY and RI). Helping our branch staff understand and anticipate our customer’s needs and offering appropriate solutions to help them grow their business, protect their families and save for their future is very rewarding to me.
What is the most frequent question you receive from customers?
When are deposit rates going up?
Do you have a favorite First County Bank moment?
