Veronica Tsang

Flushing Rotary Vice President


COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: Veronica Tsang is one of the founders of the Chinese Gift of Life which provides free open heart surgery in the United States for needy children from China with congenital heart disease. She is the vice president of the Flushing Rotary Club and sits on the boards of the Chinese American Planning Council, Shuang Wen Academy Network, St. Michael’s Church, and Flushing Council for Culture and the Arts. She is on the Community Committee Advisory Council of New York Hospital of Queens.

PERSONAL: “I’ve been blessed with good friends and family members. I have many nieces and nephews and three godchildren. They are the pride and joy of my life,” said Tsang. She also enjoys travelling, music, movies and watching The Food Network.

JOB: Tsang works for Cathay Bank as the senior vice president responsible for all retail branch business in the eastern region including New York, New Jersey and Chicago. They have eight branches in New York.

PROUDEST MOMENT: Before joining Cathay Bank, Tsang worked for J.P. Morgan Chase where she was able to recruit a team to race in the annual Dragon Boat Festival.

“We had one mission . . . To win the race. We practiced hard and we won. I was able to mobilize people from different backgrounds and have fun at the same time.”

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “Balancing work and my personal life. It’s hard to juggle my time. I am always approached by organizations and it’s hard to say no because I know they need help.”

FAVORITE MEMORY: The first time Tsang met Annie, one of Tsang’s godchildren. Tsang said Annie chose her to be her godparent when she was a 14-month-old fussy baby who would not be quiet for anyone else but her. “We are so connected and still very close.”

INSPIRATION: “To remain an advocate to the Asian community.”
