Our Story

Join a Truly Distinctive Team

It is no accident that Sterling National Bank is one of the nation’s fastest growing financial institutions. We pride ourselves on consistently improving our processes and products to deliver an exceptional client experience. And our hard work is paying off. In 2017, we were ranked #36 in Forbes magazine’s annual ranking of America’s Best Banks, reflecting the success of our growth strategy and client-centric approach.

Our President and CEO Jack Kopnisky has a clear vision for Sterling and our continued growth and profitability is a testament to the success of the plan he put in place five years ago. We are poised to become one of the top six leading bank franchises in the New York metro area, with a diverse business mix and a larger geographic footprint.

Since 2011, we’ve been focused on strategically transforming ourselves into a truly diversified regional commercial bank, and we’ve seen the results in growth of assets, loans, and deposits, as well as earnings increases. Our talented banking teams with diverse expertise are the foundation of our organization providing personalized service to our clients. We know that our colleagues are a major part of our growth story and that is what makes Sterling thrive – our culture.

As we continue to grow, we are looking for high-performing individuals who are interested in expanding their skills, working as part of a team and delivering excellence for clients. If this describes you, Sterling may offer an ideal opportunity to advance your career.

We are very excited about the future of the organization - for our clients, our shareholders and our colleagues. Sterling has something special going on!
