It’s our business to get you to a better place
When our founder and chairman, Frank Sorrentino, ran a business he couldn't find a bank that met all of his financial needs. Frank realized that the banks in his community were lacking the financial features and superior client service he was looking for and he decided to build a bank that would always put the client at the forefront of its business model.
We opened our doors in 2005 at our first location in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. The bank's business model worked. The bank quickly grew, expanded into new markets and continued to offer cutting-edge financial solutions. Today, we have locations across New Jersey & New York and continue to grow our market.
We know what it's like to grow a business because we've been there ourselves. We’re here to build with you.
