Marsela Pecanac joined the bank in January as vice president in charge of deposits. She also manages the bank’s relationship with nonprofits, foundations and other enterprises with a social mission.
Formerly a banking executive at Raiffeisen Bank International in Vienna, Austria, Marsela also has owned a boutique management consulting firm. She was drawn to New Resource because it’s “a place that shows us that profits mean little unless our purpose is treating people and the planet well. The bank embraces the idea that sustainability requires profound shifts in thinking and a drastically different way of living on our planet. More than that, sustainability is about treating the disadvantaged in a much better way than we have. Ultimately, it’s about creating wellbeing for everyone.”
Marsela says the biggest perk of her job at New Resource is working with nonprofits and foundations that are making a significant impact in the United States and around the world on a variety of fronts, including environmental protection, social justice, education, human rights, gender equality and promotion of the arts.
