Freehold resident appointed to direct Kearny Bank Investment Service

Freehold resident Mike Reilly has been appointed first vice president/director of investment services by Kearny Bank, the Fairfield-based institution said Wednesday.

In his new role — based at the bank’s Oakhurst location — Reilly is managing the launch of Kearny Investment Services, an offering of various investment products for clients. His responsibilities include hiring a team of financial advisers who will provide expert counsel to help clients meet their investment goals.

Reilly comes to Kearny Bank from a senior management position with Investors Bank, where he played an integral role in the development and growth of that company’s investment program. Prior to beginning his 25-year financial services career, he earned a bachelor’s degree in management from St. John’s University. Reilly also holds multiple financial certifications.

“Building an effective investment program for clients is a complex process, and we conducted a thorough search to find the right person to direct this initiative,” says Heather Moskal, Kearny Bank senior vice president/retail banking leader. “Mike already has extensive experience with a similar project at another bank, so I’m confident his professional background is ideally suited to this new role.”
