ConnectOne Bancorp to Acquire BoeFly
“We were looking for an entrepreneurial bank,” said Mike Rozman, CEO and co-founder of online lending platform, BoeFly. “There aren’t a lot of them out there. We needed to find that leadership who thought entrepreneurially; it wasn’t going to work otherwise.”
He’s speaking about the recent announcement that ConnectOne Bancorp will acquire BoeFly, LLC, with the deal predicted to close sometime in the second quarter. ConnectOne Bancorp’s subsidiary, ConnectOne Bank, offers both commercial and consumer banking and lending products and services through 29 offices located in New York and New Jersey.
