BNB Bank, National Association (formerly Broadway National
Bank) was organized by a group of small-businessmen who saw the need for
a locally owned financial institution to serve the ever increasing population
of importers and wholesalers who had located along Broadway, south of midtown
Manhattan. The bank was chartered by the Comptroller of the Currency of the
United States and opened for business on September 16, 1986. The first banking
office was located on Broadway, between 27th and 28th Streets.
The bank remained headquartered in New York City until 2003, when it relocated
its Main Office to Fort Lee,

BNB is a well known lender, primarily originating Commercial
Mortgage Loans. Since 1993, the bank has specialized in US Government Small
Business Administration lending. By 1995, BNB was established as one of the
finest SBA lenders in both New York and New Jersey. Soon after, the bank
was awarded Preferred Lender status, which empowered BNB to approve loans
on behalf of the SBA. The partnership between BNB and the SBA has been instrumental
to the bank’s
success and SBA Lending has become the product line for which the bank
is best known.
Since establishing itself as an SBA lender, BNB has approved
over $900 million in loans to approximately over 3000 small businesses in New
York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland and Delaware and
has created thousands of jobs in those states.
Since 2001, BNB has been recognized each year by both the New Jersey and
New York districts of the SBA, as the
#1 small bank SBA Lender in those states.
In 2010, BNB Bank ranked 18th in the nation in SBA Loan production, out of
more than 3,000 SBA lenders in the United States. These are accomplishments
of which we are truly very proud.
BNB has continuously reached new levels of growth and profitability.
It is the mission of our management team to
continue these trends, while delivering
the best of products and services to the markets we serve. We plan to expand
our physical presence through the establishment of Loan Centers in Southern
New Jersey, Delaware, Northeastern Pennsylvania and Connecticut in the
very near future.
