Ted Janicki | President, Bank of America Buffalo

Hear from Ted Janicki, President of Bank of America Buffalo, about our role in keeping Buffalo moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Now more than ever, we're focused on the economy here in Buffalo, from helping businesses rebound through the health crisis to opening up the pipeline to sustainable careers. Along with our private and nonprofit partners, we're funding programs that help people of color and low-income earners get certified for in-demand healthcare positions that provide family-sustaining wages. We're investing in local financial partners who are providing loans to spark job growth and create affordable housing. And, we're supporting programs that address food insecurity by adding vans for meal deliveries and making sure food banks remain stocked for neighbors in need. In the years ahead, we'll be supporting key initiatives that focus on neighborhood revitalization to keep Buffalo a great place to work and live.

Racial equality and economic opportunity

At Bank of America, we’re committed to addressing the root causes of inequality through a company-wide commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity across diverse communities. We are doing this by building upon our existing efforts and leveraging our strengths: creating more affordable housing and expanding home ownership, increasing lending and support to minority-owned small businesses, championing job training and career readiness and addressing health disparities like access to care. We also know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we’re partnering with other corporations, local nonprofits and community leaders across the country who share our vision for creating meaningful change.

The power of the arts

On this episode of Bank of America’s Masterpiece Moment, hear Janne Sirén, Peggy Pierce Elfvin Director of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, discuss the painting Self-Portrait with Monkey, 1938 by Frida Kahlo.

At Bank of America, we believe in the power of the arts to help economies thrive, educate and enrich societies, and create greater cultural understanding. Through programs like Museums on Us, we’re helping the arts flourish in communities across the globe.

The only way you get to #1 is by putting clients first.

World's Best Bank is a huge honor, but we couldn't have earned it - or others we've received - without our 200,000+ teammates and millions of clients around the globe.
