In 2020, the New York Historical Business Preservation Registry was established by the state Legislature to recognize and promote businesses that have made significant contributions to their communities. The Bank of Greene County has now been officially designated as part of this registry, thanks to the efforts of Senator Michelle Hinchey, D-Saugerties. This recognition honors the bank’s impressive 135-year history and its ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of its communities.
On Monday, January 22, about 75 bank officers, directors, and guests gathered at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange to help ring the closing bell as part of the bank’s 135th anniversary celebration and its 25th anniversary of being listed on the Nasdaq. Senator Michelle Hinchey commended the Bank of Greene County for being a community-minded partner that has not only stood the test of time but has also adapted to meet the evolving needs of its communities.
Donald Gibson, president and chief executive officer of the Bank of Greene County expressed excitement about the bank’s recent accomplishments, including raising interest rates on its e-checking account and e-savings account and being added to New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry. He stated that it had been a remarkable year for the bank and looked forward to celebrating this momentous occasion.
