Evelyn Zayas, Branch Manager of Eastern Bank, has a passion for helping people prosper through financial education. While growing up in Boston, MA, she realized basic financial gaps are common, even as adults, as the resources are not easily available to learn financial stability and planning. This motivated her to pursue a career at Eastern Bank, a committed, courageous, and inclusive company. It is their brand purpose of “Doing Good Things to Help People Prosper” that inspires her to make every interaction a meaningful one. Evelyn has a strong passion for serving the community and has had the chance to make a difference as Secretary of the Jamaica Plain local first, serving since 2018. She enjoys bringing people together and does this through her weekly Business Network International (BNI) group. Leading the group for two years as President taught her the importance of listening to her peers to build on ideas and to create a strong team. Her daily motivation is to make a difference into peoples’ lives through her leadership at the bank as a Branch Manager. Her 18 years of experience in the industry has made her a trusted advisor to her clients. Evelyn resides in Dorchester with her daughter.
