Universal Banker II

Danielle launched her banking career in 1994 at the Philadelphia region’s second largest, locally-owned financial institution, so her roots in community banking run deep. After working for two years in higher education and more recently in health services, she returned to banking, advancing through positions of higher responsibility at local institutions that became increasingly larger as a result of market consolidations.

As her financial services career progressed, Danielle developed exceptional proficiency in bank operations, products and services, as well as a strong commitment to customer service. She takes a proactive, problem-solving approach to each interaction, seeking strategies and solutions that will best serve each customer’s individual needs.

Prior to joining Hyperion Bank in 2019, Danielle worked at one of the nation’s largest banks. In her significant experience working at banks of all sizes, Danielle has found that community banking offers the greatest opportunity to build strong relationships with bank customers, which allows her to make a difference in their lives and businesses.

Danielle earned a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Hartford in Hartford, CT, and is pursuing a second degree in Business Administration at Peirce College. She was raised in Philadelphia, PA, where she now resides with her family.

Fun fact: Danielle is a brown belt in Shotokan Karate, collects Barbie ® dolls as a hobby, and loves animals. She is actively involved in her children’s sports teams, serving as the “snack mom” for football, lacrosse, and cheer, and equally enjoys feeding the wildlife in her neighborhood.

Relationship banking, managing bank fees
Hyperion’s Lou DeCesare (President and COO) was recently quoted in an article on  about managing your bank fees.
“We rebate up to $25 per statement of fees charged to them by other banks when they use our bank's debit card for domestic withdrawals,” said Lou. "We think this makes it easier for customers to bank with us wherever they live or work."
Lou also notes: “For a consumer interested in full-service banking - what might seem like old-fashioned, hands-on banking to some - you'll do better in the long run to choose a bank that wants to work with you across multiple bank products and services. In my 30 years' banking experience, I've found that too few consumers know that rate shopping may not actually save them fees or hassle in the long run.”
Talking banking basics
Hyperion’s Amy Ellis (Senior Vice President of Commercial Lending in Atlanta) is included in a U.S. News & World Report article about the differences between checking and savings accounts.
"A checking account is a deposit account and is intended to be transactional and liquid with the deposit holder accessing their funds via check or ATM or increasingly through electronic methods," says Amy. "Most people associate checking accounts with paying bills or perhaps payroll."
The reporter also asked about traditional versus online banking. Amy notes that Hyperion provides the best of both worlds, “That’s a very individual decision based on everything from personal preference to lifestyle, comfort level, relationships with a banker (or not) and many other factors. As a banker, I will say that line is increasingly blurred, as bricks-and-mortar banks like ours stay on the forefront of banking technology. So, consumers can actually choose sort of a hybrid – online and digital convenience, but with real-live humans to call on if and when they need to. That’s us!”

Hyperion's bankers are active in our industry
Alisha Nasse , Hyperion’s Director of Business Development in Atlanta, has been named to the newly formed FinTech Committee of the Community Bankers Association (CBA) of Georgia. Last month the new committee kicked off an initiative with the Advanced Technology Development Center, Georgia’s technology startup incubator, that will identify, develop and refine financial technology solutions for community banks.

“This committee and partnership are a great fit, and I am proud to be part of it,” Alisha says. “Through technology and our close working relationships with customers and the community, we bring community banking to them, so FinTech is an important part of our customer-centric approach.”

CBA notes that 70 percent of all U.S. transactions being handled by payment processing firms are located in Georgia. Atlanta’s “Transaction Alley” boasts more than 50 FinTech companies.
Hyperion Bank welcomes and supports local businesses who make our communities great places to live and work. We hope you'll enjoy meeting businesses and friends who make our neighborhoods unique! Introducing...

Business owner Micah Gold-Markel founded Solar States in 2008 with a dual mission to install solar and educate the next generation. In 2018 his company earned the recognition of being named "Best for the World."

Micah says: " As a lifelong resident, I wanted to connect the growing Solar industry with the need for jobs with family-sustaining wages in Philadelphia. By locating our business in the heart of Philadelphia, and by providing solar installation training to Philadelphians, we’ve seen that vision come to fruition. All the while, we’re working to make our city cleaner and greener, and allowing home and business owners to become more energy independent."

Solar States now has 30 trained employees who install Solar States Power Systems on all types and sizes of residential and commercial properties. His company uses proprietary satellite imagery to custom design systems for flat and pitched rooftops, pergolas, and ground mount installations, and has completed more than 500 projects for homeowners and clients such as Community College of Philadelphia and Swarthmore College. Visit the Solar States website to see a showcase of the company's solar projects, demonstrating the broad array of rooftops that are now capturing solar power for their property owners.

"As a certified B Corp, we’re committed to using our business as a force for good," says Micah. "For Solar States, that means working hard every day to protect our environment and create good jobs for our employees. Seeing our employees grow within the company while growing personally is incredibly fulfilling." 

In addition to educating property owners about the benefits and financial incentives associated with solar power, Solar States also teaches a solar curriculum called Find Your Power at YouthBuild Philly Charter School, Ben Franklin High School, and Randolph High School.

Micah likes banking with Hyperion for the convenience and personal service he receives. He says, "Hyperion Bank is very easy to work with and super helpful with all of our banking questions and needs."
