“We are delighted to welcome John Dolan to the Board,” stated Luvleen Sidhu, Chair, CEO, and Founder of BMTX.” Mr. Dolan brings to our Board extensive financial and regulatory expertise and experience as the strategic and financial leader of a community bank, including raising capital, preparing financial reports, developing strong internal controls, developing executive management teams, and achieving growth through acquisitions. As a newly formed public company and as we navigate our transition to a true fintech bank, his experience is invaluable.”

 

John is also the founder of Dolan Financial Solutions, a consulting firm helping entities discover appropriate financing options to execute their strategic and growth plans. Reflecting his passion for public service and community building, Dolan has been active in economic development and assisting early-stage companies during their development. He is an experienced angel investor and a member of the board of directors of Pratter, Inc., an early-stage company that provides transparency to reduce healthcare costs. Dolan also served as the Non-Executive Chairman of the Board and Audit Committee Chair of Atlantic Coast Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: ACFC), beginning in late 2013 until its successful turnaround and sale in 2018.

 

Dolan remained active in industry groups throughout his banking tenure, including the Financial Services Roundtable (now the Bank Policy Institute), the Pennsylvania Bankers Association, and the American Bankers Association.
