First Republic Adds Entertainment Bankers

First Republic Bank has recruited two entertainment bankers who will focus on offering specialized lending, deposit and wealth management services to film and television production companies and business management firms.

Melanie Krinsky was named managing director and head of film and media finance. Mandie Rush was named managing director, film and media finance.

Both have 30 years of banking experience and join from Bank Leumi in Beverly Hills. Krinsky was first vice president and manager, while Rush was vice president in Bank Leumi’s entertainment group.

The two are located at First Republic’s office at 1888 Century Park East in Century City. They will also work with their New York clients through First Republic’s offices in Manhattan and Greenwich, Connecticut.

First Republic is growing its presence in the entertainment business. It recently opened a Brentwood office and has hired teams of bankers and wealth management professionals throughout Southern California.
