Kathy Rappaport

Kathy Rappaport started her financial career on the front lines in Banking as a Customer Service Representative. She was so enthusiastic about working with people and their money, Bank Management had quickly recognized her, promoting her to a Corporate Officer position and Branch Management by age 19.

In a managerial capacity, she was taught to run her departments as if they were her own company. She was required to prepare Business Plans for each facility annually. She also worked with other managers in their own planning. Her experience in lending, audit, office organization, customer service, employee training, human resources, marketing and advertising, Federal and State Regulations and Bank Operations allowed her to be well educated in running any type of business. Ms. Rappaport taught courses and seminars to the public regarding money, business, finance, and credit as well as designing training programs for bank personnel.

After spending over 20 years working for Financial Institutions, educating people from a banker's desk, she saw that many Business Owners she had met had a contagious enthusiasm about owning their own businesses. She left banking in 1991 and soon realized that she too had that same passion for business when she started RAPPAPORT BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
