John Kanas, president, Bank United
Mr. Kanas is an important figure in banking. Having started his banking career as a teller earned respect as knowledgeable person and gained status in the North Fork Bank. North Fork was a small regional bank at that time. When the president was not able to work due to illness, John was elevated to president on a temporary basis. Later that appointment was made permanent. North Fork under Kanas’ direction eventually grew to a very large regional bank with branches in all parts of Long Island and New York City. The bank was acquired by Capital One Credit card company and the North Fork named was dropped.
Mr. Kanas sold his interest in the new combined entity and subsequently bought Bank United a small Florida bank which has now expanded to New York. He is at LIMBA to talk about the new entity. Please join us.
