by Daniel Sulpizio and Joe Tredinnick

Daniel Sulpizio
Executive vice president, South Jersey Federal Credit Union
“South Jersey business owners are strong and dedicated to their customers and communities. I have no doubt in mind we will see that “Jersey Strong” attitude shine through. I have seen business owners think outside the box to keep their businesses afloat. Many have had to reinvent themselves and their strategy and implement new ideas. Will this be easy for them? Will it happen quickly? No, but I am confident it will happen.”
Joe Tredinnick
Market president, Republic Bank
“The coronavirus pandemic has completely changed how we live our lives. People are eager for a sense of normalcy. When it is safe for businesses to reopen?

Our community must rally around businesses and support them as they continue to weather this storm.”
