WYOMISSING, Pa., Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Customers Bank, the region’s leading super-community bank with operations in Pennsylvania, D.C., Illinois, New York, New Jersey and New England, is pleased to share that it has named two new leaders to the Office of the Chair: George Maroulis, Executive Vice President, Managing Director & Market President - NY Metro, Chicago & Washington, D.C., and Timothy D.

As members of the Office of the Chair, Maroulis and Romig will work directly with Jay Sidhu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; Richard Ehst, President and Chief Operating Officer; and other bank leaders to drive the planning and implementation of Customers Bank’s long- and short-term strategies, while overseeing daily operations across the Bank’s geographic footprint. Together, Maroulis and Romig bring more than 60 years of commercial, private and industrial banking experience to the Office of the Chair, and they have served as leaders with Customers Bank since 2013 and 2010, respectively.
“George and Tim have been driving forces behind Customers Bank’s growth since they joined the organization, delivering critical thinking, good judgment and exemplary leadership in every situation that they encounter,” said Sidhu. “The benefits of their passion and dedication are felt equally by Customers Bank and by each customer in the regions that they serve. I am pleased to name them to the Office of the Chair, and I look forward to working with them more closely in this capacity.”
About George Maroulis
Maroulis presently manages banking groups that deliver the bank’s products and services though a single-point-of contact, high-tech, high-touch model. Implementing this banking model at Customers Bank propelled the division from a start-up phase to sourcing and managing more deposits than the deposit footings of more than 5,180 banks in U.S. When ranking the division by deposits, this places the Bank within the top 6% of all banks in the US.
This successful banking model closely aligns the interests of clients, shareholders, banking groups, regulators and managers through a model that rewards longstanding client relationships and high-quality credits, discouraging transactional relationships and excessive risk taking.
Prior to working with Customers Bank, Maroulis held successful client-facing and management roles at Bank of America, Fleet Bank, Citibank and other notable New York-area institutions. Maroulis began his career at The Dime Savings Bank of New York in 1990 and he studied political science and economics at Columbia University.
