Dime Community Bank Names New President, Executive VP

L. to R.: Stuart H. Lubow and John Romano

Dime Community Bank announced the promotion of two executives last week.

Stuart H. Lubow, the former chief banking officer, has been promoted to president, and John Romano has been promoted to serve as Dime’s executive vice president and chief retail officer.

Lubow, who has been a banking executive for more than 40 years, joined Dime in 2017 as a senior executive vice president and head of Business Banking. In addition, he served as an executive with Community National Bank, Garden State Bank, Dollar Dry Dock Bank and People’s Bank.

Romano also joined Dime in 2017 and has also had a lengthy career in community banking. He’s worked as an executive at First Central Savings Bank, Amalgamated Bank, People’s United Bank, Bank of Smithtown and Astoria Federal Savings.

“In the past three years and under John’s direction, Business Banking has grown into a strong and critical part of the Bank,” Lubow said of Romano’s promotion. “With retail and business banking, along with operations, under the same leadership, I look forward to continued collaboration and growth in these areas in the future.”

“Stu’s promotion to president recognizes his outstanding leadership, customer-centric focus, enterprise-wide vision, and our Business Banking division’s strong performance to-date,” said Kenneth J. Mahon, the bank’s CEO. “In a short span of time, under Stu’s leadership, Dime has made significant strides to become a well-respected community commercial bank. The Business Banking division’s strong loan and deposit growth has enabled us to increase our core net interest margin for six consecutive quarters, diversify our balance sheet and grow sources of non-interest income.”

“Stu has contributed tremendously to our long-term goal of becoming the best business bank in New York. I very much look forward to working closely with Stu in the years ahead and creating value for our customers, employees and shareholders,” Mahon added.

Dime Community Bank was founded in 1864. With headquarters in Brooklyn, the bank has 28 branches throughout Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Long Island.

In Memoriam: Bob Brennan, 68, COO of Schneps Media

Schneps Media Chief Operating Officer Bob Brennan

The Schneps Media family mourns the loss of our chief operating officer, Bob Brennan, who died on March 31 at the age of 68.

Bob passed away peacefully at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip. He resided in Babylon for 20 years with his loving companion, Cathy.

Bob was the fourth oldest in a closely knit family of 10 children, born to the late Margaret and the late William Brennan of Little Neck: Mary, Bill (deceased), Tom, Sue, Terrie, Grace, Joe, Dick and Dan. Bob was a cherished brother-in-law to Roger, Rita, Glenn, John, Karsten, Mary, Marie and Jeanne. He was a dear uncle to over 20 nieces and nephews.

Beginning as a paperboy, Bob spent his entire career in the newspaper industry. As a young entrepreneur, he owned and operated newspaper franchises throughout Queens and Nassau before becoming a newspaper senior circulation executive.

For the past 15+ years, he was the chief operating officer of Schneps Media, the parent company of the Long Island Press, where he was the publishers’ cherished advisor on every aspect of the business — especially while leading their huge expansion initiatives throughout the boroughs of New York City and into Long Island, Westchester County, and Philadelphia.

Bob’s passions were running, skiing, and playing tennis, all of which he excelled at. His outgoing personality, good humor, inspirational leadership and business acumen endeared him to everyone who knew him.

The value Bob placed on the importance of family and the example he set will never be forgotten. His untimely loss is also deeply felt by many work colleagues and friends.

In 1975, he married his long-time high school girlfriend, Nancy (ex-wife), remaining her forever dear friend. During their long marriage, they resided in Manhasset, raising two cherished sons who survive him: Mike, husband of Cara, and Matt, husband of Katie. Bob also leaves behind Cathy, his loving companion, and her son Jason, husband of Molly.

A proud grandpa, he is also survived by his precious first granddaughter, Chloe, born March 12 to Mike and Cara.

Bob will be interred in Nassau Knolls Cemetery in Port Washington. In light of the current situation, there will not be a wake or burial services. Instead, a memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.

To Chloe from Grandpa
I never got to kiss your face,
Or bounce you on my knee,
Or take you on the bunny slope
and teach you how to ski.
I never got to read to you,
Or play your favorite game.
I wish that Grandpa could have been
Much more than just a name.
What happened was God needed me,
I quickly had to go.
But Chloe, though I’m far away,
I’ll always love you so.
