Kearny Bank has promoted three senior auditors – Fair Lawn resident Earl Jornadal, Little Falls’ Robert Kusant, and Neptune resident Matthew Boyle – to vice president positions. Boyle is based at the bank’s Oakhurst location; Jornadal and Kusant work from a Clifton office.
Boyle has more than a decade of experience with Kearny Bank, both as a credit analyst and auditor. Prior to joining the company, he held a management post with American General Finance. As vice president/senior auditor, he is responsible for audits specific to lending and allowance for loan and lease losses. A Monmouth University graduate with a bachelor’s in Finance, Boyle is credit risk certified from the Risk Management Association and is certified in commercial credit by Moody’s Analytics.
Jornadal, who earned a bachelor’s in Finance from Montclair State University, has professional experience in branch operations, accounts payable, and accounting. As vice president/Information Technology auditor, he manages IT sector audits and plays an active role in other audits assigned to the internal audit group. He holds a certified information systems auditor certification.
A Bloomsburg University graduate with both a bachelor’s and master’s in Accounting, along with a minor in Fraud Examination, Kusant came to Kearny bank in 2016 from Ernst & Young. He has experience in fraud investigation and dispute services, and is a certified public accountant, certified fraud examiner, certified anti-money laundering specialist, and certified information systems auditor. As vice president/senior internal auditor, he leads audits of higher risk areas including BSA, Compliance and Wires while overseeing staff in completing more conventional audits.
“As Kearny Bank continues to expand, we increasingly find ourselves in the enviable position of being able to attract and then advance the most talented professionals,” explains Carmine DiSomma, Kearny Bank First Vice President/Director of Internal Auditing. “This is the case with Matthew, Earl, and Robert, and I’m confident that each will continue to deliver significant benefits that enhance the soundness of Kearny Bank.”
