“The team at Peapack Capital took the time to learn about our business and the industry, which allowed them to more fully understand our needs. There was great communication throughout the entire lending process from approval to closing, so we always knew where things stood throughout the transaction. No fast talk. They provided a competitive loan structure and terms; timely decision-making, and they were very accessible. They even tolerated construction and delivery delays, which made working through this with Peapack Capital even easier.”– Howard Blank, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
