Bank receives Banking Choice Award after being voted #1 in Technology for New York State’s Capital Region

The Bank of Greene County is proud to announce they received a Banking Choice Award for First Place, Technology, in the Capital Region!  The Award was presented by American Business Media and Banking New York Magazine.

Don Gibson, Bank President and CEO, stated how proud he is of the success of the Bank, and how advances in technology have helped the Bank stay competitive, without losing its Customer Service focus: “We think of ourselves as the little Bank that could.  We are proud to live, work, and serve our local communities, while also being on the cutting edge of new Banking technology.  We were one of the first banks in the country to offer Apple Pay, and now offer Android Pay and Samsung Pay as well.  Customers always tell me how much they like our mobile app and online banking – we’re constantly looking for ways to use technology to make banking more convenient for our customers, without losing that personal touch.”

Chief Information Officer Gregory Spampinato stated how proud he was of the Bank’s technology, but more importantly the Information Technology Team: “We have a great Information Technology Team working behind the scenes to make sure that customers and employees have a seamless IT experience.  It’s not enough to have great technology, or great people supporting technology – it’s the combination of both that ultimately makes an organization successful.  We’re very lucky at the Bank, because Don recognizes that, and supports both technology and employees.”

Headquartered in Catskill, the Bank of Greene County is the only locally based bank with offices in Greene, Albany, Columbia and Ulster Counties. Proudly serving the Hudson Valley for 130 years.
