Provident Bank in Montebello, N.Y., has recruited another team of lenders away from a rival bank as part of its broad plan to boost its commercial lending in the New York City area.

The $3.2 billion-asset unit of Provident New York Bancorp (PBNY) said Tuesday that it has hired four veteran bankers from Herald National Bank in New York. Herald was recently acquired by the $12 billion-asset BankUnited (BKU) in Miami Lakes, Fla., and it is expected that Herald will be folded into Bankunited at some point.
