Investors Bank is expanding its Business Banking and Government team, responsible for acquiring and managing relationships with small- and mid-sized companies in the region, with two career banking professionals.
On Wednesday, Head of Business and Government Banking Michael MacIntyre announced the addition of Jenna Buretta and David Norton as senior vice presidents and banking marketing executives for Central and Southern New Jersey and New York, respectively.
According to the Short Hills-based full-service community bank, Buretta and Norton’s appointments come as part of a strategy to bolster its service and treasury management solutions to meet customers’ needs. They will both report directly to MacIntyre.
“This step further positions Investors as the preferred financial institution for small and mid-sized businesses throughout our footprint,” MacIntyre said in a prepared statement. “The credibility and presence that these banking professionals will bring to the market will help Investors to enter a new phase of growth.”
Working from Mount Laurel, Bureta will lead business banking operations in Central and South Jersey, while increasing brand awareness and developing and mentoring her team.
With decades of retail and business banking experience, she most recently led HSBC Bank’s small business lending team in the greater Philadelphia area, Investors said, and previously held executive positions at TD Bank, Citibank and Commerce Bank.
Norton will focus on expanding relationships with New York-based business clients while increasing market share for companies in the $2 million to $20 million range. He also comes from HSBC Bank, in New York City, where he served as senior vice president and Northeast regional executive for business banking. Norton also spent more than 20 years at JP Morgan Chase as a senior bank executive.
“We continue to invest substantial resources to build-out our business banking capabilities, MacIntyre added. “The greatest opportunities lie ahead as we deliver the message to small and mid-sized companies that the Investors team is prepared and ready to help our clients succeed in these challenging times and beyond.”
Investors Bank has more than 150 retail branches and more than $27 billion in assets, as of Dec. 31, 2019, the most recent information available. It recently completed its acquisition of Long Island-based Gold Coast Bank in April.
