“I truly enjoy working in a small bank because you have to be willing to wear many hats and not be myopic. I thrive on the challenge of learning something new every day and helping to build a business,” added Califano. “The job involves more than just finance – I get involved in all areas of the bank – operations, lending, compliance, IT, HR, etc. The job is not static, it is constantly evolving, and that’s what keeps it extremely interesting.”

Califano is a member of the Banking Committee of the New York State Society of CPAs and is the chair of the CFO Peer Group Council of the Independent Bankers Association of New York State, Inc. She serves on the Business Advisory Council of the North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center in Roslyn.
