Manasquan Bank’s Marketing Coordinator and Assistant Treasurer, Nick Martin was named one of New Jersey’s New Leaders in Banking for 2016.
The 2016 recognition marked the fourth straight year in which a Manasquan Bank employee has been included in the annual selection of up-and-coming banking industry stars made by the New Jersey Bankers Association and New Jersey Banker magazine. Martin was recognized alongside 12 other 2016 New Leaders at a special awards dinner on Thursday, Dec. 1 at Ocean Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch, N.J.
“Mr. Martin has shown ambition, enthusiasm, and a genuine desire to enhance Manasquan Bank’s image and marketing strategy,” said Manasquan Bank President and CEO, James S.

Since joining Manasquan Bank in 2013, Martin has completed an impressive number of projects including the launch of Manasquan Bank’s Kasasa checking products, development of a comprehensive marketing plan, and coordination of a complete rebrand. He is also extremely active in the community, participating in the Manasquan Bank Charitable Foundation, and frequently volunteering his time to various local non-profits both in and out of the workplace.
