Bridge Bank hired Nick Nardulli as assistant vice president of portfolio management, Richard Biers as vice president of portfolio management and Steven Ogus as senior vice president of asset-based lending, all in the company’s capital finance group. The company also hired Timothy Carstens as a managing director in April 2020.

“The current economic environment continues to challenge businesses, potentially putting traditional commercial financing out of reach,” Carstens said. “Our growing team of experienced [professionals] are well positioned to help businesses evaluate the merits of the ABL product to help them achieve their near- and long-term goals.”
