Valley National Financial Advisors welcomes Simone Sanvito as the firm’s newest Associate. Simone graduated from Hofstra University in Long Island with a Bachelor of Business Administration as a double major in Finance & Accounting.

Simone will work out of Valley National’s Bethlehem office where he will be completing exams required in the financial services industry while learning about the business and assisting with important projects.

“Simone completed two summer internships with us, so he is already familiar with our team and some of our processes,” says Matthew Petrozelli, CEO. “During his time with us, he demonstrated the talent, passion and dedication that our client-first culture requires.”

Originally from Arcore, Italy, Simone came to the United States in 2011 as a high school exchange student and later moved to Long Island, New York to attend Hofstra University. Having visited the Lehigh Valley frequently in recent years, Simone chose to relocate and establish his career in Bethlehem.

He is currently pursuing a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification and is also interested in a CFP® (Certified Financial Planner™) designation in the future.

Outside of work and education, Simone’s passion for the past 10 years has been playing the drums. He is also a soccer fan and his favorite team is A.C. Milan.

Simone Sanvito can be reached at ssanvito@valleynationalgroup.com or 610-868-9000 x132.
