Key Role: Responsible for leading the continuing success of OceanFirst Bank and bringing extraordinary community banking to new clients and new markets.

Goals:
To support healthy growth and development in our core markets by providing credit, investment, and deposit services founded upon a real understanding of our customers and the markets.

Previous Jobs:
I have spent my professional career in community banking, most recently as president and CEO of Patriot National Bancorp. I am proud to continue to serve as chairman of the board of trustees for Helen Keller Services for the Blind.

Key Strengths:
Leading teams in a way that allows them to reach their highest potential.

Career High:

Next:

Challenges:
OceanFirst Bank has a 111-year history of helping our customers through different types of challenges. Never were the challenges for our customers and communities greater than in October 2012 when Superstorm Sandy hit the Jersey Shore. OceanFirst Bank responded quickly to assist with the initial recovery efforts during the days and weeks that followed. Although Sandy is behind us, the courage and resolve of Jersey Shore residents and businesses has never been more evident, and we are working side by side with our neighbors to support the long-term rebuilding of our communities.

After Hours:
Spending time with my family, sports and other outdoor activities.
