Kuras joins Unity Bank as chief lending officer

Adam Kuras has joined Unity Bank as chief lending officer, bringing more than 27 years of banking and finance leadership experience to the community bank.

Unity Bank CEO James Hughes said Kuras’ experience will be a great fit.

“Adam has extensive experience providing customers with product solutions for financing, working capital, real estate, asset acquisition and cash management needs,” he said in a statement. “Unity’s commercial lending program continues to grow, and Adam will play an important role in its future success.”

Unity Bank, a primary and wholly owned subsidiary of Unity Bankcrop, is a financial services organization headquartered in Clinton. It provides financial services to businesses and consumers at 19 branches throughout New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania.

Kuras, who graduated from North Hunterdon High and Rutgers University, said he feels Unity is a perfect fit for his skillset.

“I have known Unity Bank for many years, from competing against the bank in the market, to pursuing professional interests with Jim Hughes and other members of the Unity team through industry organizations,” Kuras said.

“The role of the chief lending officer at Unity is a strong match with my experience and skill-set, as well as my long history in the community. Unity has provided a great opportunity for me to take the next step in my career and to further strengthen a leading regional lending program.”

Kuras, who lives in Flemington, previously was with Fulton Bank, serving as manager of the northern New Jersey commercial relationship team.
