Santander names new head of mid-Atlantic middle market banking

Santander Bank on Wednesday named Mark Schrieber as its new head of mid-Atlantic middle market banking, effective Feb. 1. Schrieber will report to Joe Abruzzo, head of commercial banking for Santander.

Schrieber joins Santander from JPMorgan Chase, where he most recently served as managing director and head of business development for the Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware middle market region.

In his new role, Schrieber will lead business development, market growth and relationship management for commercial banking’s middle market segment in the mid-Atlantic region and will oversee a team of bankers focused on combining local knowledge with international expertise to deliver tailored solutions to clients and prospects throughout Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.

“Mark’s passion for thoroughly understanding client objectives to help them meet their goals and ability to build and maintain personal and trusted client relationships align so closely with our commercial banking value proposition. Beyond his relentless client focus, Mark’s entrepreneurial mindset, extensive knowledge of the middle market segment and proven track record in the mid-Atlantic region position him well to execute on our strategy of helping more businesses prosper,” Abruzzo said.

Previously, Schrieber held various leadership positions during his more than two-decade tenure with JPMorgan Chase, most notably launching its middle market business in the Philadelphia region in 2011 and successfully establishing middle market offices throughout the Philadelphia metro market.

Schrieber will be based in Santander’s office in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.
