Get to Know Our Team -- Personally!
Vice President
Human Resources and Vendor Management/
Facilities; Corporate Secretary
When Lauren Calisti joined the Hyperion Bank team as a loan processor in 2013, she made it her mission to learn as much as she could about each department. If anyone needed assistance or had a project to tackle, Lauren stepped up, using each opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of the Bank's operations, processes, and people. She particularly enjoyed solving problems and building strong internal and external relationships.

As Lauren met every new challenge, her strong work ethic, excellent management skills, and sincere customer service commitment were recognized bank-wide. In the fall of 2015 she was promoted to manage all vendor and facility systems. Just two months later her responsibilities were expanded to include the human resources function, as well.

"My position here has allowed me to grow in so many ways, and I am very fortunate for all of the opportunities Hyperion has given me," says Lauren. "I always knew  I wanted a job that would allow me to help people and here I am able to do that. I have formed relationships with our outside vendors and customers. I have gotten to know our Board of Directors and shareholders. But most importantly, getting to know and help our staff is very rewarding. Working in these different areas of the bank I am able to learn something new every day, and I look forward to expanding my knowledge as Hyperion grows." 

Lauren was raised in South Jersey, where she continues to reside with her husband and two young children. She and her family enjoy fishing and traveling, cheering her 8-year old son on at his sporting events, and teaching her 1-year old daughter how to walk and talk.

Fun Fact: Lauren says that since she is a "Jersey girl," the beach is her second home, and her favorite beach town is Cape May. Want suggestions of things to do and places to eat at the Jersey Shore? Email Lauren

Hyperion Bank Goes EAGLES Green for the Philadelphia Eagles Foundation
Last week, Hyperion Bank joined the people of "Eagles Nation" in celebrating the team's NFC Championship win and road to the Super Bowl, while showing their Eagles colors for a good cause.

Our employees chose to participate in "Dress Down for Charity" by wearing Eagles green, black and white on days when they donated $5.00 to the Eagles Charitable Foundation.

Their generous donations, matched by Hyperion Bank, will help provide eyeglasses and vision care for 19 children in need through the Foundation's Eagles Eye Mobile Program, which says, "Every kid deserves Eagle Eyes!".

Since 1996, the Eagles Eye Mobile program has helped more than 81,000 uninsured and under-insured children in the greater Philadelphia region, and distributed more than 56,000 pairs of eye glasses. CLICK HERE to learn more about this important community service.
