Scott Skorobohaty Joins People's United Bank As Executive Vice President, Commercial For NYC And Long Island
New York, NY – People's United Bank announced today that Scott Skorobohaty has joined the bank as Executive Vice President, Commercial Banking, responsible for the New York City and Long Island markets. Skorobohaty brings 20 years of experience in banking and financial services to the position, including proven capability in executive leadership as well as administrative and operational experience. He is responsible for driving the Commercial business in coordination with other bank leaders throughout the New York market.
Prior to joining the bank, Skorobohaty was Executive Vice President, Chief Banking Officer at Hudson Valley Bank, chiefly responsible for Sales and Marketing across the company, including overall direction, management and administration. He drove organizational strategy and accountability for annual sales goals while optimizing organizational management and business line planning up to the bank's acquisition by Sterling Bancorp in June 2015. Previously, Skorobohaty was a substantial contributor to the growth of North Fork Bank by designing, creating and implementing strategic initiatives to enhance the experience of that company's New York Metro client. A focus on optimizing commercial banking relationships during Skorobohaty's tenure resulted in significant growth at the bank until its acquisition by Capital One in 2006.
"We are pleased to welcome Scott to People's United and look forward to his leadership in the NYC and Long Island Markets," said Jeffrey Tengel, Senior Executive Vice President, Commercial Banking. "We are focused on further expanding our presence as a strong, relationship-based, full-service commercial and retail bank in this market. Scott's close focus on collaboration with clients and colleagues, along with his systematic approach to strategic innovation, makes him an ideal leader for our team there."
