Signature Bank Names Private Client Banking Team In Brooklyn, N.Y.

Signature Bank (Nasdaq:SBNY), a New York-based full-service commercial bank, announced today the addition of a new private client banking team to be based in the Brooklyn area. This marks 10 teams now dedicated to serving the growing Brooklyn marketplace.

Leon Kratsberg and Gary Shulevich were each named Senior Vice President and Group Director while Deborah Raffone was appointed Senior Client Associate. Kratsberg and Shulevich, who have worked together for eight years, will serve the entire Brooklyn marketplace from the Bank’s office at 84 Broadway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As the Bank further expands efforts across Brooklyn, the team will be relocating to another private client banking office in the area.

The team joins from the HSBC branch near Bensonhurst, Brooklyn at 6702 Bay Parkway. Most recently, Kratsberg, with a decade of banking experience, was a Senior Relationship Manager and Vice President, serving large commercial clients throughout Brooklyn and Staten Island. Prior, he was a Business Relationship Manager at JP Morgan Chase covering the Brooklyn area.

Shulevich brings 11 years of banking experience to his new role, all spent with his former employer. Previously, he was a Relationship Manager and Vice President, also catering to the Brooklyn and Staten Island markets, where he managed one of the largest deposit portfolios within that market.

Raffone’s 21-year banking career was primarily spent serving as Assistant Branch Manager at various HSBC branches in Brooklyn and Staten Island, providing business support to relationship managers in both these geographic areas.

“The appointment of Leon, Gary and Debbie marks the seventh team we’ve added in the first half of the year and the 10th private client banking team we now have based in Brooklyn, serving this growing marketplace. Leon and Gary will cater to clients throughout Brooklyn as well as Staten Island, since during the past decade, they have focused on forging relationships throughout both areas,” noted President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph J. DePaolo.
