“The First Bank Team was helpful beyond words in the [PPP] process and helped keep us afloat during the pandemic”

You have been the best banker that I could have come across. Really thankful to you for your support and for your flexibility.

Martin Ginsberg

Rockaway, NJ

“A great team to work with!”

Denise from the Denville Office is an outstanding professional. She and her team helped my company through the maze of regulations and paperwork to get a PPP loan that helped counter revenue loss due to COVID-19. A great team to work with!

Gini Gramaglia-Parent

Owner - Gini G's Hair & Nail Studio
Southampton, PA

“We sincerely appreciate their professionalism to help us through such a difficult time.”

Michael Borkowski and staff of First Bank (Warminster) handled our PPP loan for Gini G’s Hair & Nail Studio. The team processed our completed application in the most efficient and timely manner possible. Michael and his team were always available at a moment’s notice to answer any of the questions we had as this was a new process for all of us at Gini G’s. We sincerely appreciate their professionalism to help us through such a difficult time.

“Working with First Bank [on obtaining a PPP loan] during a very critical time for my business was what helped me sleep when my head hit the pillow at night.” 

“Working with First Bank on obtaining a PPP loan during a very critical time for my business was what helped me sleep when my head hit the pillow at night. They helped me to keep my business running and I can’t thank them enough.”

Robert Slade, MD

President - Doylestown Emergency Associates
Doylestown, PA

“It is not an overstatement to say that help from First Bank truly helped the community that we all live in.”

I can’t thank you enough for your help in assisting us with the PPP loan. Your help was instrumental in keeping us staffed during the peak of this pandemic. It is not an overstatement to say that help from First Bank truly helped the community that we all live in.

Lou Rodriguez, P.E.

CEO - Rodriguez Consulting, LLC
Greater Philadelphia Area

“I cannot emphasize enough the importance of business owners having a relationship with your bank.”

“I want to thank John Pettit, Scott Civil, and the team at First Bank NJ for their efforts in reviewing, approving, and funding our SBA PPP Loan. Rodriguez has banked with FirstBank since I formed the company in 2007 and they have been instrumental in assisting us with our growth over the years. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of business owners having a relationship with your bank.”

Dinesh Goswami

Partner - AR Group of Restaurants, Inc.
New Jersey

“Truly a community bank.”

“Thank you First Bank, Arlene Pedovitch and Terrance R. Howard, MBA. I have yet to hear back from Big banks after three weeks of filling out a Payroll Protection Program (PPP) application. First Bank took our application, processed it and gave us approval in one week. Truly a community Bank.”

Ricky Puleio

The Barker Lounge
East Brunswick NJ

“These are the types of business dealings that keep customers like me around for a long time.”

“We came over as a Grand Bank customer (with the merger in 2019). As with any change I was skeptical of what I may find in dealing with staff that I had no business relationships with. I started dealing with the local branch in Somerset, and started to develop a business relationship with their personnel. Carol is the one who I’ve dealt with the most. I always walked out of the branch with a sense of comfort, and felt I was given the level of attention I required. I’ve had the brief privilege of working with both Michele and Karen (on PPP loans) and have come away extremely satisfied. These are the types of business dealings that keep customers like me around for a long time. I thank everyone again.”

Karen Grady

Hilltop Nissan
E. Hanover, NJ

“During the busiest and craziest parts of the loan program you always made yourself available.”

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help and hard work in helping Hilltop with the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loan. I realize how busy you were during this process, but I greatly appreciate how you always made time to answer my questions and emails. It helped me so much during such an anxious process. During the busiest and craziest parts of the loan program you always made yourself available. Thank you again!”
