MELVILLE, N.Y.Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Nationwide Mortgage Bankers, Inc., a mortgage lender headquartered in New Jersey with a regional operations center in Melville, New York, welcomes two new Board members into its ranks.

Joining the Board of Directors are former New York Governor David A. Paterson and Jeffrey M. Weiner.

David A. Paterson became New York’s 55th governor, serving between 2008 and 2010. During his years of service, Governor Paterson effectively predicted and acted on the State’s impending fiscal crisis. He became the first governor to sign legislation that penalized predatory lenders during the worst foreclosure crisis in American history. His reforms reduced New York’s deficit by nearly $40 billion during the next three years. Since stepping down as governor, Paterson has served as an adjunct professor at New York University, a frequent speaker and guest commentator and, most recently, as the Director of Investments at Stifel, Nicolaus & Company.

Jeffrey M. Weiner has led Marcum, one of the largest independent public accounting and advisory services firms in the nation, since 1990, serving as a managing partner. In 2017, Marcum appointed him as chairman and chief executive officer. Under his leadership, Marcum transformed from a regional firm of 20 employees to a highly-ranked, full-service firm. Weiner accomplished this feat by broadening its selection of services and capabilities to meet the constantly evolving needs of Marcum’s expanding client base. The impressive progress he has made in the public accounting and advisory services industry has been nationally recognized. Weiner was named an “MP Elite” by Accounting Today in 2012 and 2016, becoming the only U.S. firm leader to be awarded this title multiple times. He was included in both Accounting Today’s 2010 Top 100 Most Influential People and Inside Public Accounting’s 2013 Top Five Most Admired Peers, while also being named the recipient of the LEA Innovative Firm Initiative of the Year Award in 2012 and the LEA On the Edge Innovation Award in 2009.

“I am excited to enter our first full calendar year with Governor David Paterson and Jeff Weiner on our board of directors,” says Richard Steinberg, founder of Nationwide Mortgage Bankers. “Nationwide stands to benefit greatly and expand its footprint significantly from their business acumen and leadership ability.”

Richard Steinberg founded Nationwide Mortgage Bankers, Inc. in 2011. Now, with the additional invaluable insight from Paterson and Weiner, Nationwide is ringing in the new year with optimism.
