We recently had the opportunity to get to know one of our amazing associates who focuses on many of the programs Fremont Bank relies on to run smoothly every day. For this month’s Associate Spotlight, meet Mark Oyao, a reliable and dedicated Fremont Bank associate who has proudly worked with us for 35 years. (Thank you, Mark!)
How long have you worked at Fremont Bank and what do you do here?
I have been here for approximately 35 years. I work in the Banking Systems/Item Processing department, which is within the Information Technology group. My tasks are working on and assigning service tickets on issues that other clients within the bank may have. I also monitor banking systems and process daily tasks associated with these systems. I also give security access to new associates who need access to applications such as Navigator and Director.
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I enjoy multitasking with all the daily processes I need to start and complete before my shift is up, and embrace the challenge of meeting deadlines. While I work on service tickets, I monitor, run, and process these tasks and others on the banking systems I mentioned earlier. I also enjoy the flexibility of working from home, and the ease of scheduling personal time off when needed.
What’s your greatest strength as a business professional?
I believe my reliability, efficiency, and dedication are my main strengths. I take pride in being on time and getting my daily tasks finished while meeting deadlines. This allows clients to receive their reports or other information available on our banking systems when they log in first thing in the morning.
If you could snap your fingers and end a world problem, what would you choose?
Homelessness and hunger. These two things seem to be getting worse all over the world and particularly here in the Bay Area.
What’s your favorite superhero or Muppet?
My favorite superhero is Marvel’s Iron Man. He seems like a hero that can actually exist today with all the technology we have. No superhuman magic powers, just a man with advanced technology. Plus he is the same color as my favorite football team, the 49ers. Red and gold, Go Niners!
