JP Morgan Chase is lending three small business bankers to assist the Nassau County Economic Recovery Task Force.
“I am grateful that JP Morgan Chase for assisting our efforts to get Nassau County businesses back in operation and thank the three banking professionals for volunteering their time in this endeavor,” said Nassau Executive Ed Mangano in making the announcement on November 16. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we are committed to doing all we can to help small businesses rebuild in Nassau County.”
The bankers, who will work out of Chase’s district office in New Hyde Park, will spend three hours daily serving as economic development caseworkers, advocating on behalf of the businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy. They will assist business owners in completing Small Business Administration loan documents, liaise with other governmental agencies and provide administrative support to the affected businesses.
“Having the assistance of these bankers will help our affected businesses get the professional help they require at this time of crisis,” said Richard J. Daly, chairman of the task force and chief executive of Broadridge Financial Solutions in Lake Success.
“We are pleased that we are able to provide assistance to this important project,” said Christine Lawton, senior vice president and market manager at Chase Business Banking.
The three banker/volunteers are Jessica Sisto, Kris Chantrasuk and Yvonne Digilio.
