The Bank of Greene County has been recognized by the New York Historical Business Preservation Registry for its significant contributions to the history of the community. This recognition was sponsored by Senator Michelle Hinchey and established by the state Legislature in 2020. The bank was honored by about 75 bank officers, directors, and guests who helped to ring the closing bell at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange on Monday, Jan. 22. This event was part of the celebration of the bank’s 135th anniversary and its 25th anniversary of listing on the Nasdaq.
Senator Michelle Hinchey commended the Bank of Greene County, saying, “The Bank of Greene County is a shining example of a community-minded institution that has stood the test of time while adapting to meet the needs of its communities.” Donald Gibson, president and chief executive officer of the Bank of Greene County, expressed excitement about this recognition and shared that they have also raised their interest rates on e-checking and e-savings accounts and been added to New York State’s Historic Business Preservation Registry. It has been an exceptional year for The Bank of Greene County, and they are looking forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with great enthusiasm.
