Maria Zeqo   

VP, Community Business Banking

Maria has been part of Salem Five since September of 2019, and has nearly 20 years of financial services experience that she brings to bear for the benefit of businesses throughout the region. She earned a Bachelor's degree from Northeastern University in Finance and Accounting and then spent over ten years managing retail teams at a few area banking institutions. Maria has a rich history emigrating from Albania and speaks multiple languages (Albanian, Spanish, Greek, English), which allows her to reach a broader clientele and build closer relationships with customers. She has a positive outlook on life and work and truly loves what she does. She believes in being a constant learner and has completed one year programs in both the Massachusetts Bankers Association New England School for Financial Studies (NESFS) as well as the Commercial Lending Credit Analysis Apprenticeship Program. Outside of work, she is a proud mother of two and enjoys spending every minute with them, including playing volleyball. Interior design and fashion are her hidden hobbies, along with spending time outdoors.
