For Paula Griffiths, supporting community is both a personal and professional mission. That’s why Vesta Asset Management, her property management company, focuses on people first. It’s also why she serves on the board of LYRIC, a Bay Area nonprofit that supports LGBTQQ+ youth to thrive. When she first came to First Republic to open savings accounts for her children, she found that the Bank’s people-first philosophy matched her own. Having a dedicated banker for her financial needs helped her grow Vesta into the successful business it is today. Paula continues to expand her business with the backing of a bank that can balance goals with core values.
