Our Client Testimonials

Plainfield Country Club

“We pride ourselves on offering an unrivaled experience and have found that Peapack-Gladstone Bank has that same pride. The attention to detail and responsiveness of our private banker throughout the lending process as we renovated our clubhouse was exceptional. We offer a special experience at PCC and working with a financial institution with a similar reputation and commitment to excellence is important to us.”
Karen Larken, Chief Financial Officer

Founded in 1890, Plainfield Country Club enjoys a revered reputation, offering world-class golf, premier racquets, swimming and entertainment facilities, along with an unrivaled experience. Famous for its world-renowned Donald Ross golf course, the Club has recently been restored by leading golf architect, Gil Hanse. PCC has one of the largest racquets’ programs in New Jersey, offering extensive tennis, paddle and squash programs; along with a state-of-the-art aquatic facility for the entire family. Its turn-of-the-century clubhouse offers indoor and outdoor fine dining on the highest point in Middlesex County, overlooking New York City and the Watchung mountains.

Deborah Heins, Commercial Private Banker, Peapack-Gladstone Bank
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
