#UBDreamTeam: Andrew Baker

While we could talk an awful lot about what our employees do at the bank, we thought it would be fun to have our customers get to know the non-work side of our employees. They're pretty great people. To help you get to know them better, we asked each of them a series of questions... and told them to respond honestly.

We talk a lot about helping people with their dreams at UB. SO, what’s your dream? 

Andrew: My dream is to live a happy, balance life. To me, that means being in a loving relationship, having a supportive network of close friends, having a fulfilling job, and having plenty of time to devote to my passion for performing music.
