The Bank of Greene County has been recognized by the New York Historical Business Preservation Registry for its significant contributions to the history of its community. This recognition was sponsored by Senator Michelle Hinchey, D-Saugerties, and established by the state Legislature in 2020. The bank was honored at an event at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange on Monday, Jan. 22, where about 75 bank officers, directors, and guests helped to ring the closing bell.
Senator Hinchey commended the bank, saying, “The Bank of Greene County is a true community-minded partner. Over its impressive 135-year history, the bank has not only stood the test of time but continually adapted to meet the needs of the communities it serves.” Donald Gibson, president and chief executive officer of the bank, expressed his excitement about the anniversary and recent accomplishments. He mentioned that the bank has raised interest rates on its e-checking account and e-savings account and has been added to New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry. It has been a remarkable year for the Bank of Greene County, and they are looking forward to celebrating this momentous occasion.
