Provident Bank announced Tuesday it is adding to its executive team with three new hires.
Paul Keshian joins the Jersey City-based bank as vice president, relationship management with Provident’s commercial real estate team; Nick Latora comes on board as vice president, relationship manager with the business banking team; and Tonika Moore will lead the Matawan branch location as banking center manager.
Responsible for originating, evaluating and structuring commercial real estate deals, Keshian will be based in Provident’s Iselin office. He will work closely with institutional and private investors, owners, and developers on deposit and lending solutions. The bank said Keshian will also manage a portfolio of central and northern state-based commercial real estate clients.
Latora will work with small- to mid-sized companies out of Provident’s Morristown office with a focus on expanding its commercial portfolio.
In Matawan, Provident said Moore will be responsible for accelerating small business loan growth and driving deposits at the branch, in addition to developing sales strategies, overseeing staff and operations and promoting superior customer service.
