 Arlington, Va. (June 19, 2014) National Cooperative Bank, a leading financial institution dedicated to serving cooperatives nationwide, is pleased to announce that they have recently hired Mr. Greg Daniszewski and Mr. Bob Bernstein as National Commercial Real Estate (CRE) lenders focused on traditional CRE transactions and Mr. Harley Seligman as the newest Cooperative Housing lender in NCB’s New York Office. All three are vice presidents.  Daniszewski and Bernstein will be tasked with generating NCB’s CRE loan portfolio, which consists of CMBS and portfolio loans mainly focused on the East Coast.  Mr. Seligman joins NCB’s New York-based lending team of Ed Howe and Mindy Goldstein to generate cooperative housing first and second mortgages in the five boroughs of New York City.  NCB’s commercial real estate lending will supplement the cooperative housing asset class in CMBS transactions.  

      “We are extremely fortunate to have three new additions to NCB’s commercial real estate lending team,” said Mr. Charles E. Snyder, President and CEO of NCB.  “NCB is committed to generating commercial real estate and cooperative housing transactions and is very excited to have the experience and commitment to the sector these three new hires bring.”  

 Greg Daniszewski and Bob Bernstein are both seasoned CRE lenders with a total of forty years of experience. Prior to their new roles at NCB, Mr. Daniszewski was with Susquehanna Bank and Senior Vice President - Director of Capital Markets at Preston Scheffenacker Properties and Mr. Bernstein was with CBRE, CW Capital and Artesia (Dexia) Mortgage Capital Corporation, where he was the director of Loan Originations. 

Mr. Seligman joins the New York cooperative housing team after the retirement of long time employee Sheldon Gartenstein.  He was recently with Urban Compass, a Real Estate Technology start-up where he oversaw the initial outreach and expansion into the Brooklyn market and managed a team of nine agents.
