Provident Bank announced it hired Peter J. Dawson to lead a new commercial banking team in New Jersey. Dawson joins the firm as senior managing director and will be responsible for leading the team to build and cultivate commercial relationships.

The bank said the addition of this team in New Jersey brings the total number of Provident Bank teams dedicated to serving the needs of businesses throughout the greater New York metropolitan area to 16.

Dawson has over 25 years in banking and most recently served as a regional commercial executive for HSBC where he was responsible for managing the middle market in New York City and New Jersey, while also developing a national health care group, a municipal bond program, and a national professionals group focusing on law firms and CPAs.

This new team will operate under the PBNY Bank name out of the Paramus office. “Peter brings to Provident Bank an impressive record of success in developing and managing middle market clients, including specialty markets such as health care, law, and accounting,” said Carl Capuano, senior vice president, commercial market leader.
