Our Client Testimonials

Frank Anthony Salon

“We realized early on in business that success would come easy if we continued to educate ourselves, to possess the heart of a servant, to treat our team as family, and to work really hard. In business, culture is key. We operate the salon and treat our team with kindness, in a loving team-based culture, where everyone is equal. We see a connection in that with Peapack-Gladstone Bank. Special thanks to Joan Wychules and the PGB team in Chester, for 40 plus years of support and friendship, and for being instrumental in moving Frank Anthony Salon forward.”
Frank Warner, Owner

Joy and Frank Warner, along with Anthony Gentile, opened a small two chair salon in Chester, NJ in October of 1970. They have always focused on studying marketing and the craft of hair design, hair color, and spa services, travelling worldwide to study with the best salon educators in the world of beauty. Today, Frank Anthony employees 48 professional stylists and support staff, and is celebrating 49 years in Chester.

Dear Valued Shareholder,

On behalf of Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation and all of its wholly owned divisions and subsidiaries, I hope you and your families are safe and healthy.

These are certainly unprecedented times for everyone, but it is during times like these that I find comfort and security in knowing that I am not alone. It is my hope that you feel the same, and that you know Peapack-Gladstone Bank and its team of hard-working employees are here for you.

For nearly 100 years, we have put our clients and our communities first. These are two of our most important core principles, which we stand by each and every day. These statements truly define who we are and exemplify our commitment to doing the right thing, providing a trusted relationship for clients, even during extremely difficult times.

The theme of our 2019 Annual Report is “Focused on the Client.” The decision to follow this theme throughout the Report was made well before the Coronavirus entered our lives, but I feel strongly that it rings even more true today than ever before. Although much has changed during the last few months, our commitment to our clients, and our focus on our clients, will never waiver. Whether it is through support of our community organizations in need with funds or volunteers, or through loan or financing relief for our commercial and consumer clients, or specifically through offering Paycheck Protection Program assistance for our small businesses, we will always provide a steady hand.

I am proud of our 2019 accomplishments and that we were able to deliver a seventh year of record results for our shareholders. The enclosed report tells our story, which I hope you will also take pride in.

As we look ahead to our new normal, we will continue to keep our shareholders, our clients, our communities and our employees at the forefront. This will drive our success.

Respectfully yours,

Douglas L. Kennedy
President & CEO
Peapack-Gladstone Bank
