Maplewood, NJ – August 27, 2019 – While only opening its doors in Maplewood in January 2018, BCB Bank has made quite an impact on the township in a short time. Most recently, a health-centered mixed-use property financed by BCB, CLARUS, was honored with a 2019 New Good Neighbors Award by the New Jersey Business and Industries Association.


BCB Bank led by President Thomas Coughlin believes in supporting the community and “Paying if Forward”. We pride ourselves on being a good neighbor in Maplewood according to Claudine Baptiste, who is a long time Maplewood resident for over 24 years and Business Development Officer for the bank’s Maplewood and South Orange branches who recently was honored by the Maplewood Chamber of Commerce with the 2019 Distinguished Service Award for her overwhelming support of community events, programs, school organizations and charitable efforts.


BCB has been very active in Maplewood since the bank acquired a branch in South Orange in 2011. With the two towns long considered sister communities, becoming active in Maplewood was natural. The Bank is always looking for markets where they can make an impact, grow, and play a key role in supporting local causes in support of the community’s economic development.
