Be Like Brit: Mark's Trip to Haiti

As the head of the bank’s construction lending department, Mark Leff, goes above and beyond to help his clients reach their business goals. But his passion for helping customers goes far beyond the walls of the bank – helping people is in his nature. In February 2012, Mark made his first trip to Grand Goave, Haiti where he assisted the electrical team as they wired the first floor of the orphanage.

In addition to wanting to work on building the orphanage, he also said that he needed to see the orphanage first-hand so that he could understand the scope and ambition of the project, and explain it to others. Along with his volunteer efforts, Leff has worked tirelessly to raise funds to support the orphanage and the Be Like Brit Foundation
