Jennifer M. Burd, 31 M&T Bank, Assistant Vice President, Relationship Manager
As a child, Jennifer Burd wanted to be an astronaut because of the fascinating mystery of outer space. She has a persistent hunger for knowledge, and believes knowledge and understanding give her the competitive edge to be better every day. Her first paying job was at Scoop’s Ice Cream in Mountville, Pennsylvania. She considers her greatest success to be obtaining her undergraduate and graduate degrees while working full time. She would advise others to always take ownership of their own mistakes and learn from them. Her colleagues would describe her as possessing passion for what she does at M&T, as demonstrated by her positive attitude, hard work and eagerness to help others. She makes it her personal goal every day to make sure her customers are happy. In five years, she would love to advance into more leadership-oriented roles in her volunteer work, such as being the president of a nonprofit board.
