Valley National CEO Matt Petrozelli was among the panel of presenters at the 2018 Lehigh Valley Business “90 Ideas in 90 Minutes” event. He spoke about leadership, change and financial health.
One of the panelists, Matthew Petrozelli, CEO of Valley National Financial Advisors in Hanover Township, Northampton County, said, “You’ve often heard that leaders are born. I can tell you that’s completely false. Everyone has the capacity to lead.”
Petrozelli said leadership can be learned, but it takes time. He counted himself among those who learned through activities such as participating in a wilderness survival school in the Yukon after graduating from Lehigh University instead of getting an internship on Wall Street.
