Matthew Levinson will oversee a broad range of internal finance-related responsibilities, including financial reporting, budgeting, and management of the bank’s investment portfolio.
He joins the bank from Orange Back & Trust Co. of Middletown, N.Y., where he was first vice president and controller. Prior to that, he spent five years as executive vice president and CFO for Englewood Cliffs-based Bank of New Jersey.
“Matthew comes to Ascendia Bank with demonstrated successes in all facets of accounting, including internal controls and financial reporting,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Ferdinand Viaud in a prepared statement.
In addition to the executive team appointment, Ridgewood YMCA CEO Ernest Lamour has joined the bank’s board of directors.
The moves come as the bank debuts its new Ascendia Bank brand. The change was announced in December and was partially propelled by the geographic expansion of the bank’s footprint beyond its Glen Rock-area roots.
The bank said in an announcement that it also wanted to showcase a fresher, more forward-leaning brand image upon adding a range of products and services, including internet banking, online bill pay, a mobile banking application and commercial real estate lending.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
