Northfield Bank Announces Executive Leadership Changes

Northfield Bancorp, Inc., the holding company for Northfield Bank, reported today that in connection with the Company’s executive management succession plan, Kenneth J. Doherty will relinquish his title of Executive Vice President as part of his retirement from the Company that was announced in August 2018.  Mr. Doherty will retain the title of Senior Credit Advisor, however he will no longer oversee the credit underwriting or credit administration functions of the Bank.

Tara L. French, Executive Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer, will assume the leadership and oversight of the Credit Department and Credit Administration Department. Ms. French joined Northfield in 2017 after a career as a banking regulator with a range of responsibilities, including supervision of midsize and community banks, at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. 

Steven M. Klein, President and Chief Executive Officer of Northfield Bank stated, “Tara’s extensive credit and regulatory background provides for a seamless transition as we continue to grow and diversify our commercial loan portfolio throughout the greater metropolitan region. We thank Ken for his more than 30 years of service and for his integral role in taking Northfield Bank from a mutual savings bank to the $4.4 billion publicly traded company that we are today.”
