We are thrilled to congratulate one of our esteemed customers, Bemana, LLC, for their recent recognition by New Orleans City Business as one of the fastest-growing companies in the New Orleans area.

Bemana, a recruiting agency specializing in equipment, industrial, and executive placements, has experienced revenue growth of over 160% over the past three years, thanks to the strategic efforts of its leadership team during the pandemic.

When COVID-19 hit and client businesses halted hiring, Bemana's executive team, including husbandwife duo Joseph and Linn Atiyeh, turned the pandemic's challenges into an opportunity to reflect and chart a new course for the next five-plus years. As a result, they experienced tremendous growth of more than 160% from 2020 to 2023.

President and General Counsel, Joseph Atiyeh, credits Fidelity Bank and Joey LaRocca, Vice President & Commercial Relationship Manager, for stepping up during the pandemic to help Bemana. “When our large, national bank at the time wouldn’t help us access federal emergency funding, Joey and Fidelity Bank stepped up on a moment’s notice and delivered just in the nick of time. With Fidelity Bank's help, Bemana emerged from the crisis even stronger, with a newfound strategic focus and a plan for growth. We immediately moved our accounts to Fidelity and rely on its team with confidence for all of our banking needs.”

Bemana's story is a testament to the resilience, innovation, and determination of our business community. We at Fidelity Bank are proud to support our customers through challenging times and to celebrate their successes.
