Meet Eric, Vice President, Deposit Operations

Eric Gavazzi has built his career at First Commonwealth Bank, joining in 2006 as an entry level Reconcilement Specialist. Eric committed to put forth his best every day, ask questions, and take on new things. Within a year, he was given the chance to manage a small team.

"As I continued to learn new things and do so with an eagerness to grow, I was given more challenges and took advantage of them even if they weren’t exactly what I saw myself doing in life.

"This gave me knowledge and skills I had never been exposed to. Eventually, I was provided the opportunity to oversee Deposit Operations, which is my current role, and is challenging, exciting and different, every day."

In leading the Deposit Operations team, Eric manages the day-to-day operations of the bank including card fraud, wire transfers, return check processing, ACH processing and mail and transportation, to name a few.

"I attribute my success at First Commonwealth to two things. First, those around me that took a chance on me, helped me learn something new or walked me through something they’ve done a million times with extreme patience. Secondly, my opportunities have given me the chance to experience the entire banking world in bite size chunks. This has given me a high level view of how banking operations truly function.

"My ideas and thoughts have always been received in a positive light and have been implemented on various occasions. I believe that First Commonwealth is an endless possibility of career opportunities and I’ve grown to understand that stepping outside of my comfort zone has proven to be the most rewarding and fulfilling aspect of my career. I love working on problem-solving and helping people achieve things that they didn’t think they could."
