Nick has been with Brentwood Bank over 20 years. He started the Commercial Lending department in 1994 and subsequently built-up the Bank’s Lending Team and Portfolio to its present size, making Brentwood Bank one of the fastest growing Commercial Lending operations in Western Pennsylvania.
Today, he is responsible for all aspects of commercial, residential and consumer lending at Brentwood Bank. He also oversees subsidiaries such as Brentwood Advisors, LLC, Brentwood Realty Associations, LLC, Parkridge Development, LLC, and Majestic Hills, LLC.
“We practice a unique brand of hands-on lending in which the lenders themselves do the underwriting. This gives us the ability to better create flexible terms tailored to meet individual needs and circumstances. Furthermore, customers have the ability to take advantage of the lending team’s experience and expertise — as well as benefit from working with the same individuals throughout the lending process.”
Nick’s stability and longevity in the lending business is an ongoing testament to the quality of service he provides. The fact that most of the new business comes from relationships and referrals he and his team have built over the years is proof of his and his team’s dedication and level of commitment to customers.
