Mr. Klein is President of Eastland Shoe Corp., a family-owned manufacturer of classic, casual footwear, founded in 1955 and based in Freeport, Maine.  Eastland's well-regarded, nationally distributed brands include the premium "Made in Maine USA" collection.  Since joining Eastland in 1972, Mr. Klein's responsibilities have included strategic planning and financial management, sales and product development, supply chain management and global sourcing, and manufacturing and overall operations.  He also is working to transition the business to the third generation of family ownership and management.  Mr. Klein received his BA and Master of Science degrees from Syracuse University.

He will bring a valuable perspective to our Board based on his successful track record in business, and his experience in expanding a family-owned company into a respected, nationally-known brand. This background makes Jim an excellent fit for Sterling, as our own profitable growth has been built on serving the needs of small to mid-sized businesses.  We look forward to benefitting from Jim's experience and insights," stated Louis J. Cappelli, Sterling Bancorp's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
