A Letter from Our President

Welcome to the Entrepreneurial Bank

Team - Mark Defazio

We started Metropolitan Commercial Bank because we recognized a need for a middle-market bank that shared the entrepreneurial spirit of its clients. Everything we did would be optimized toward the singular goal of helping our clients build wealth from the people we recruited, to the locations we chose, to the products we offered. Today, we believe that need is stronger than ever.

When you work with our entrepreneurial bankers, you gain a partner who understands your industry and your market and is deeply committed to learning more about your business. Your Metropolitan Commercial banker will find out what keeps you up at night and what excites you about the future. We all work toward developing long-term, mutually rewarding relationships that will support the growth of your enterprise for decades, or perhaps even generations, to come.

We are the right bank for you and your business. Our senior management has worked at some of the largest money center banks. We have deep experience in your industry and a well-defined suite of products. More importantly, we have the flexibility and commitment to create solutions that can help your business.

Thank you for considering Metropolitan Commercial Bank. We look forward to working with you to help your business grow and prosper for many years to come..
