Pond Lehocky’s Chief Financial Officer, Bryan Rielly, was published by Global Banking and Finance Review for his commentary piece entitled “Change or vanish: the financial impacts of Covid-19.” Rielly speaks in detail about the changing landscape for financial institutions due to the global pandemic.
“I think that the banking ‘ecosystem’ is changing. I’ve discussed several pieces of technology throughout this piece, and some are specific to banking, and some are more universal to impact all businesses. Hardware such as remote deposit scanners or Square Cash, allow businesses to accept and process payments much quicker and easier,” Rielly wrote. “Software such as DropBox and Docu-Sign allow private and secure sharing of documents and information, as well as authorization of those documents. Other software like Zoom allow for easy communication and offers a ‘face-to-face’ approach. Do not fear technology, but rather learn to use it to your benefit.”
Reilly is the Chief Financial Officer at Pond Lehocky. In his role he manages all accounting, finance, banking and investment functions for the firm. He built the accounting and finance team, which now has over a dozen people, and manages its workflow and processes. His team has overseen and supported consistent year-over-year revenue and profit growth. In addition, he serves as treasurer of the firm’s charitable arm, Pond Lehocky Foundation, and its political action committee, Pennsylvanians for the Disabled.
