New Branch Manager for Washington Heights Location

The Berkshire Bank is pleased to announce that Maria E. Pineda has been named the branch manager of the Washington Heights branch.  With 25 years of retail banking experience at such institutions as HSBC and Chase, Ms. Pineda brings with her valuable financial knowledge and a love of community.  Ms. Pineda’s vast experience grew as she worked in the local New York City communities where her dedication and enthusiasm when dealing with clients set her apart from other bank personnel.  Ms. Pineda is excited to bring this same high level of service to the Washington Heights area and branch. 

 “I was born and raised in New York City and am looking forward to getting to know the Bank’s customers, the community and working with them to ensure that they have the best banking experience possible.”, said Ms. Pineda.  Moses Krausz, President and CEO of The Berkshire Bank, agreed and further stated, “With Ms. Pineda’s experience, we know that she will be a valuable asset to The Berkshire Bank. I invite the Washington Heights community to visit Maria at the branch to discuss the Bank and its products.” For more information on the bank, its locations, products and services, please visit
