Provident New York Bancorp (PBNY) in Montebello has added its fifth commercial banking team in the New York City market since January.

The $3.1 billion-asset Provident is in the process of buying Gotham Bank of New York, a one-branch commercial bank, and it is looking to build on that deal by hiring teams of lenders from rival banks. In January, Provident had added four new commercial banking teams and hired bankers from Capital One Financial (COF), Herald National Bank and TriState Capital Bank to lead the groups.

Provident now has 13 commercial banking teams overall.

The newest team is headed by Eric G. Tamm, a senior vice president and managing director. He most recently at First Republic Bank (FRC), where he worked with high-net-worth clients, and he previously worked for M&T Bank (MTB), where he held a dual role in private banking and health care finance.

Lisa A. Reardon and Seth Dolce were both hired as vice presidents and associate managing directors from Gibraltar Private Bank and Trust in Coral Gables, Fla. At Gibraltar, Reardon was a vice president in private banking. She previously held a similar position with First Republic Bank.

Dolce focused on real estate lending at Gibraltar. He also worked at Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) and Bank of America (BAC).
