The Bank of Greene County has been honored with a place on the New York Historical Business Preservation Registry. This recognition was sponsored by Senator Michelle Hinchey and established by the state Legislature in 2020.

On Monday, Jan. 22, the bank was honored at an event held at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, where about 75 bank officers, directors, and guests helped to ring the closing bell. This event 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 shining example of a community-minded institution that has stood the test of time and adapted to meet the 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 and looked forward to celebrating this momentous occasion. 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 an exceptional year for the Bank of Greene County, and it is eagerly anticipating celebrating this milestone moment with its customers and employees.
