CNB Business News: Investors Bank’s Christopher Warren Named to South Jersey Biz Power 50 for 4th Consecutive Year
SHORT HILLS, N.J. – For the fourth consecutive year, Christopher Warren, Senior Vice President and Commercial Banking Team Leader at Investors Bank, has been named as one of South Jersey Biz magazine’s “Power 50 most influential businessmen and women”.
Warren spent the last three decades in commercial, middle market, and merchant banking, building a solid and successful portfolio of businesses, professional firms, and not-for-profit organizations. Most recently, Warren has been focused on bolstering local businesses as they bounce back from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We have been working with businesses throughout our footprint to help them leverage technology and automation to rebuild and overcome staffing shortages,” said Warren.
Southern New Jersey has a key role to play in business development for the east coast, according to Warren. “South Jersey’s central location is recognized as having increased importance as the economy transitions from manufacturing to more wholesaling and distribution,” said Warren. “The food processing industry continues to play an important role in the region’s economic health, as does the redevelopment and economic renaissance occurring in Camden, which has stimulated the entire region.”
Warren joined Investors Bank in January 2019, as the Senior Vice President/Team Leader for the commercial banking team in Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties. It was Investors’ long-standing dedication to community involvement, caring for its customers and employees and its relevance and commitment to business development that first attracted Warren to the bank.
“Investors is strongly committed to community, particularly in working with community organizations that strive to strengthen our neighborhoods through fostering meaningful change” explained Warren. He said such commitment ranges from the funding after-school programs in Camden to addressing the food deserts in underserved neighborhoods.
On behalf of Investors Bank, and driven by his personal commitment, Warren actively seeks opportunities to assist in enhancing the prosperity of the local communities in the region. He also has been actively encouraging companies to consider the city of Camden as an opportunity for investment and expansion.
Warren maintains a strong, unwavering and long-term commitment to the Boys & Girls Club of Camden County, who have honored him as a “Citizens Champion”. Warren has been a trustee for the organization for nearly 20 years and has served as treasurer. He has been involved in various activities, events and programs with the Boys & Girls Club over the last two decades. He’s also been focused on supporting efforts that work to eliminate the stigma and embarrassment associated with behavioral and mental health disorders.
He is a trustee for The Virtua Foundation and Oaks Integrated Care, a member of the Virtua Health System’s Finance & Investment Committee and he sits on the Board of the South Jersey Bankers Association. Warren is also a member of the Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Services Advisory Board.
Warren earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. He has an adult daughter and currently lives with his wife Elizabeth in Moorestown, New Jersey.
