East Greenbush, New York – The Bank of Greene County today announced that it will open a new branch office to be located at 602 Columbia Turnpike, in East Greenbush, NY.
According to Bank President and CEO, Donald Gibson, “This is a very exciting expansion announcement as our Bank continues to be the fastest growing Bank in the Capital Region. We are opening the new branch due to overwhelming customer demand. While we have had a significant presence for many years in the Capital Region, this will be our first branch in Rensselaer County.
The Bank of Greene County has been serving local communities for over 130 years. In all that time, we’ve never said farewell to customers due to a merger or consolidation. And we never will, because we set the Bank up with a unique ownership structure that ensures our independence. Being local, and staying local is important to us. We are here to stay!
While the Bank has not set a definite date for a branch opening, it is our intention to immediately proceed with the design and renovations. We have targeted the second quarter of 2023 for the grand opening. We plan to staff the office with a combination of experienced Bank staff and will be accepting applications from potential new employees, hopefully from the local community.
The new office will feature a full service 2,520 sq. ft. branch, along with offices designed for corporate cash management, private banking, commercial lending, municipal cash management, and investment services. The branch will feature a cyber-café, a drive-up 24 hour ATM, two drive-up windows, and ample parking. In addition, we believe our customers will appreciate the convenience of the location, as it allows full entry and exit onto Columbia Turnpike and full access to the Hannaford Shopping Mall.”
The Bank of Greene County is the only locally based Bank with offices in Albany, Columbia, Greene, and Ulster Counties. Headquartered in Catskill, New York, the Bank of Greene County has proudly served New York’s Capital Region and Hudson Valley for over 130 years.
