Flushing Financial, the parent holding company for Flushing Bank, acquired a commercial real estate lending team from the former Signature Bank.
“We are pleased to welcome Chris Penino, Christy Archer and Kim Carson to our high-quality commercial real estate lending group,” Frank Korzekwinski, chief of real estate lending at Flushing Financial, said. “We are confident that they will assimilate quickly into the Flushing Bank culture and will attract and develop full banking relationships from their existing and prior client rosters.”
“The recent market disruptions have presented an opportunity to acquire talent from competitors negatively impacted by the banking crisis,” John R. Buran, president and CEO of Flushing Financial, said. “We are particularly pleased to bring this team on board at a time when, despite continuing rate-related head winds, our loan pipeline continues to grow.”
