Meet OceanFirst’s WaveMaker of the Month – Brandon ZongeMay 1, 2021
We’re pleased to highlight our OceanFirst Bank colleagues who are making a difference with the Foundation’s nonprofit partners – we call them the “WaveMakers” and they’re extraordinary leaders and volunteers.
How long have you been a member of the OceanFirst Bank team? What role do you play on the Bank Team?
I have been a part of the OceanFirst team for 5 years. I am currently the head teller for the Wildwood branch. I contribute to daily teller line operations, audits, account maintenance, etc.
What did you want to be when you were a kid?
I wanted to follow in my fathers’ footsteps and become a firefighter.
Are you a traveler or a homebody?
I want to see as much of the world as possible.
What has been your favorite volunteer activity – and why?
My favorite volunteer activity is serving as lieutenant for Cardiff Fire/Rescue located in Egg Harbor Township. Serving and protecting the community I live in brings me the opportunity to help other when they are unable to help themselves.
What has volunteering taught you?
Volunteering has taught me that even the smallest of contributions can make a big impact in your community.
Do you sing in the shower? In the car?
I will turn either place into my own concert.
If you could turn into an animal, what would it be?
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
