Carl Gambino

Senior Vice President and Group Director
Signature Bank

Carl Gambino has been serving as the Senior Vice President and Group Director at Signature Bank. He was born and raised in Greenwich Village, with his formal education shaped exclusively by New York City schools. His professional career in banking spans over almost 40 years of accomplishments in Manhattan in neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village, the East Village, Chelsea in the shadow of the Flat Iron building, the Empire State Building, the Diamond district, the Garment district and Madison Square Garden building.

As a young banker his leadership skills were quickly recognized. He was not only considered an exceptional manager of personnel, and a multitasking executive, he was also considered to be one of the most ethical men in the field. What separated him from many other men and women in the field was his commitment to the total community in which he worked. As a corporate “neighbor,” Gambino has given his time, talent, and treasure to support many charitable organizations as an event volunteer/coordinator, board member and patron.

He was a founding member of the East Village Business Association, Board member of the 23 Street Association, and The Chelsea YMCA, as well as the Big Apple Greeter. He has sat on the board for LaSalle Academy, is a New York City Advisor board member for Friends of Karen, and a Board member of Professional Business Networking Association.

He co-founded a networking dinner called “The Gathering” over twelve years ago which continues today. The sole purpose of this dinner is to bring all types of business people together to share, and expand businesses throughout New York. Gamino is married to his childhood sweetheart, has two grown sons, two beautiful grandchildren and a dog named Mia.
