MONTEBELLO, NY--(Marketwired - June 30, 2014) - Sterling National Bank, the principal subsidiary of Sterling Bancorp (NYSE: STL), today announced seven new additions to its relationship banking teams servicing commercial middle market clients, as part of its ongoing effort to invest in high-growth areas and deliver a broad range of financial products and services to its clients. The new hires -- four in specialty finance and three in commercial banking -- bring to Sterling a diverse range of expertise and a proven track record of success in the Metro New York market.

"We look forward to leveraging the insights of these outstanding individuals as we continue to expand our specialty finance capabilities," said Howard Applebaum, President of Specialty Finance & National Markets.

He was previously at Israel Discount Bank of New York for 15 years, where he spent the bulk of his tenure as a Relationship Manager and recently held the title of First Vice President. In that capacity, he managed an asset-based lending portfolio in excess of $200 million.
  • Robert Schepis, Managing Director. Robert will be responsible for monitoring existing loan facilities and introducing new relationships to the bank. He was previously Senior Vice President of Business Banking and Market Credit Officer for Capital One Bank. There he helped drive new business relationships and retain asset quality within business banking.

In addition to the new members of the specialty finance teams, Sterling has added depth to its New York Metro commercial banking team with the following additions:

  • Tej Brahmbhatt, Senior Managing Director. Tej was previously with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he helped lead a commercial banking team as a relationship manager in New York City.
