Bank of Greene County Receives Historic Business Designation – Daily Freeman

The Bank of Greene County has been recognized as part of the New York Historical Business Preservation Registry. This honor was sponsored by Senator Michelle Hinchey, D-Saugerties, and established by the state Legislature in 2020. The registry aims to celebrate and promote New York businesses that have been operating for at least 50 years and have made significant contributions to their communities.

The bank was honored at an event held at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange on Monday, Jan. 22, where about 75 bank officers, directors, and guests helped to ring the closing bell. The occasion marked the bank’s 135th anniversary and its 25th anniversary of being listed on the Nasdaq.

Senator Michelle Hinchey commended the Bank of Greene County, saying, “The Bank of Greene County is a true example of a community-minded institution. Over its impressive 135-year history, the bank has not only endured but continuously adapted to meet the needs of the communities it serves.”

Donald Gibson, president and chief executive officer of the Bank of Greene County, expressed excitement about the bank’s accomplishments and looked forward to celebrating this momentous occasion. He mentioned that the bank had raised interest rates on its e-checking account and e-savings account and had been added to New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry. It had been an extraordinary year for the Bank of Greene County, and it was eagerly anticipating this special recognition.
