The Bank of Greene County has been recognized as part of the New York Historical Business Preservation Registry, a program that honors and promotes businesses that have made significant contributions to their communities. The bank was honored at an event held at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, where about 75 officers, directors, and guests helped to ring the closing bell on Monday, January 22.
Senator Michelle Hinchey commended the Bank of Greene County for its community-minded approach and its impressive 135-year history. Donald Gibson, president and CEO of the bank, expressed excitement about the bank’s recent accomplishments, including raising interest rates on e-checking and e-savings accounts and being added to the registry.
The purpose of the registry is to highlight businesses that have been operating for at least 50 years and have contributed significantly to their communities. The Bank of Greene County was recognized for its commitment to serving its customers and adapting to meet their needs over time.
This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the bank’s employees and management team. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of supporting local businesses that contribute to our communities.
