“Curate is looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Eastern,” Ron Fuccillo, CFO and co-founder of Curate Partners, said. “Our transition to their facility and banking platform was seamless, which is a credit to their team.”

“Curate Partners offers new ways to consider the talent recruitment experience through technology innovation and the digital workforce, and we look forward to offering our asset-based lending solutions to support its daily operations and expansion plans,” Greg Buscone, executive vice president and senior commercial banking officer of Eastern Bank, said.

The commercial banking team advising Curate Partners includes Buscone, Don Lewis, senior vice president and head of ABL, and Dan Bolger, senior vice president and ABL relationship manager.
