Greg Godsey, Union First Market Bank
Union First Market Bank invests in SVP as we believe strongly in supporting regional economic development in the Shenandoah Valley. Through SVP, economic development for the region is effectively coordinated through the state with regional localities in a cooperative manner. SVP is engaged in workforce development initiatives which enhance the coordination and connection of employers and potential employees in the region. Through quarterly economic forums, the annual meeting, and semi-annual networking socials, we are kept abreast of economic developments in the region and are able to make business connections. The return on investment is outstanding for Union First Market Bank in terms of the efforts of the SVP ensuring the economic success of the region, which provides for retention of existing businesses and new business investments in the region, which in turn provides for bank customer opportunities for our Bank.
Greg Godsey is Senior Vice President and Commercial Market Executive at Union First Market Bank. He currently serves on SVP's Executive Committee and is Chair of the Development Committee.
