In his role at Dime Bank, Nick will plan, organize, and direct the Bank’s overall retail banking activities in support of the Bank’s strategic and operating goals and objectives.
Statoulas joins Dime Bank with over twenty-five years of banking experience in the Connecticut and Massachusetts markets.

In this role, Nick oversaw all aspects of 55 retail branches which included business development and customer retention. He also played a key role in United’s Product Development Division and has extensive experience serving the needs of a very geographically and socio-economically diverse customer base located from Greenwich, CT to eastern CT and most recently, Westerly, RI.
“I am very excited to have an established banking leader like Nick join our management team at Dime,” said Nick Caplanson, Dime’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “His retail expertise and complimentary skillsets in product and business development will help Dime continue to stand apart as a unique local banking option for individuals, families and businesses in our area.”
