Alberto Garofalo | President, Bank of America New Jersey

Hear from Alberto Garofalo, President of Bank of America New Jersey, about our role in keeping New Jersey moving forward.

Let’s build something together

As President of Bank of America New Jersey, I am proud that we have made a $1.25 billion, five-year commitment of additional support to help local communities address economic and racial inequality accelerated by the global pandemic. We will focus on assisting people and communities of color that have experienced the greatest impact from the health crisis. This work builds on economic mobility work Bank of America already supports in New Jersey and our commitment to responsible growth. I oversee the bank’s work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from Sussex to Cape May. I’m also charged with helping strengthen economic opportunity and build strong communities through social responsibility efforts, which as we know are absolutely essential to New Jersey at this time.

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.

Together, we're demonstrating that we deliver great results for clients and also help address important priorities in the communities we serve. It's amazing what we have the power to do when we work together.
