Commenting on Mr. Savarese's appointment, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph R. Ficalora, stated, "We would be hard pressed to find a more suitable candidate for service on our Boards of Directors. Mr. Savarese’s expertise in finance and risk management and his extensive experience as the senior independent auditor for some of the world's premier banking institutions – including ours – will serve both our Company and our shareholders well. We are delighted that he has agreed to serve on our Boards of Directors, and as a member of our Audit, Investment, Risk Assessment, and Nominating Committees, where his expertise will be put to excellent use."
