First County Bank Spotlight – Henry Kim

Get to know Henry Kim, Vice President, Relationship Manager for First County Advisors, the Wealth Management Division of First County Bank.

Tell us a little about yourself!

I am a New York native, born and raised in Queens. I attended Archbishop Molloy High School, and for any avid basketball fans out there – it was also the alma mater for Kenny Anderson and Kenny Smith amongst others. Staying in my home state, I attended Cornell University majoring in Economics.

I met my lovely wife of over 15 years at a local church in Queens, but it wasn’t until we attended a swing dance event at Lincoln Center, where the initial “spark” took place. My wife and I currently reside in Westchester County, NY, with our two young kids, 10-year-old daughter and 8 -year-old son. My children were both born in Stamford (where we lived for several years), before reluctantly moving back to NY.

When I am not advising my Wealth Management clients, you can find me tirelessly practicing and playing baseball/softball, football, and basketball with my kids. Additionally, I love skiing!! While I can no longer do moguls, I do enjoy time on the slopes.

Do you have any secret talents or hobbies?

Rumor has it, I cook up some splendid Korean dishes including spicy stews, Korean BBQ, and for dessert, some sweet rice punch.

What is your favorite part of your role with First County Bank/ First County Advisors?

My favorite part of my role is the level of camaraderie and collective team spirit I have with my colleagues at First County Advisors, working together to assist and meet the needs of our clients. While most of my career was spent at firms larger in scale, there is something to be said about First County Bank’s culture – their genuine interest in each other’s’ successes, the Bank’s overall success, and most of all, really caring and getting to know our clients.

Do you have a favorite First County Bank moment? This can be any moment at the Bank that has made an impact on your life.

Since joining the Bank in June of 2022, I would say it was during my first week with the Bank. The warm welcome by all further solidified my choice to be part of the First County Bank team, for many years to come. A close second, would be being able to work closely with Paul Bubniak prior to his retirement. The level of care and time Paul committed to me during my onboarding, was certainly well appreciated. Paul was just another example of the high caliber individuals at First County Bank.

What can your clients come to you for?

Clients can reach out to me for any investment related areas – comprehensive financial planning, trusts and estate planning.
