Union County Savings Bank in Elizabeth, N.J., has hired a former state banking commissioner as its general counsel.
The $1.8 billion-asset bank hired Michael Horn, who is currently a partner at McCarter & English, according to ROI-NJ.com.
“Mike’s legal acumen and experience in the banking industry is second to none,” Joseph Yewaisis, the bank’s chairman and CEO, was quoted on the website. “Mike brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the role.”
Horn served as New Jersey’s commissioner of banking for two years in the early 1980s.
