Woodbridge-based Northfield Bank on Friday announced that Kenneth Doherty will relinquish his title of executive vice president as part of his retirement from the company, previously announced in August 2018.
Doherty will retain the title of senior credit advisor, however he will no longer oversee the credit underwriting or credit administration functions of the Bank. Tara French, executive vice president and chief administrative officer, will assume the leadership and oversight of the credit department and credit administration department.
“Tara’s extensive credit and regulatory background provides for a seamless transition as we continue to grow and diversify our commercial loan portfolio throughout the greater metropolitan region,” Steven Klein, president and chief executive officer of Northfield Bank, said in a prepared statement. “We thank Ken for his more than 30 years of service and for his integral role in taking Northfield Bank from a mutual savings bank to the $4.4 billion publicly traded company that we are today.”
