WHITE PLAINS, NY (July 20, 2017). The Westchester Bank was recently named by Independent Banker Magazine as one of the nation’s top-producing commercial lenders. The Bank was recognized within the category of Community Bank Commercial Lenders with assets in excess of $500 million. The Westchester Bank was ranked #5 overall in the nation based on the highest dollar-value percentage of loans to assets in 2016.

This selection comes as The Westchester Bank continues its record growth and expansion with a focus on small to mid-sized businesses throughout Westchester and surrounding areas. John M. Tolomer, President & CEO, stated, “Our success is a direct result of executing on a simple business model, Banking Made Personal. Companies work with us because we understand the local landscape, listen to their needs and provide solutions to meet those goals. And we do so in a highly personalized manner that reflects an internal culture of providing quality service and real customer care to each and every customer. We’re fortunate to have such a strong stable of business partners to work with as we continue to outpace our most optimistic projections, now exceeding $770 million in total assets,” Mr. Tolomer concluded.

The Bank’s Top-Producing Lender selection comes on the heels of additional industry accolades The Westchester Bank has received that include a 2017 Best Companies to Work for in NYS and a Bauer Financial 5-Star Rating for a fifth consecutive year.
