Nalini Seepersad-Deen

Nalini began her banking career at our Community Savings Bank- Astoria Federal Savings and Loan Association on July 2008 as a part-time teller, while pursuing a degree in Corporate Finance and Economics at Queens College. In observing the family oriented culture and ability to make a difference in peoples lives at Astoria Bank, she decided to develop a deeper understanding of Banking in our community and build my career in the industry.

After working through the ranks in our retail banking network, Nalini joined the Management Associate Training Program in July of 2011 and was promoted to Branch Assistant Manager in 2012.  In working with various teams in different community settings she found it extremely important to give back to the workplace and the communities that we serve. In August 2015 she joined a newly created division of Relationship Banking and focused on developing the De Novo program for Workplace and Community Advantage Banking with a team of experts. The program provides exclusive Banking benefits and financial literacy to the employees of companies and members of organizations. In the recent merger with Sterling National Bank, Nalini continues to develop relationships throughout the Greater NY area as the Group Advantage Banking Program Manager. In this role she has been able to give back to our community through financial literacy and helping individuals establish sound financial behaviors.
