Bank of Greene County Receives Historic Business Designation – Daily Freeman

In 2020, the New York State Legislature established the Historical Business Preservation Registry to recognize and promote businesses that have been operating for at least 50 years and have made significant contributions to their communities. This year, the Bank of Greene County was officially designated as part of this registry, an honor sponsored by Senator Michelle Hinchey, D-Saugerties. The bank was recognized for its impressive 135-year history and its ability to adapt to meet the needs of the communities it serves.

On Monday, Jan. 22, about 75 bank officers, directors, and guests helped to ring the closing bell at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange in celebration of the bank’s 135th anniversary and its 25th anniversary of listing on the Nasdaq. Senator Michelle Hinchey commended the bank, saying “The Bank of Greene County is an excellent example of a community-minded partner.” Donald Gibson, president and CEO of the Bank of Greene County expressed his 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’s Historic Business Preservation Registry. He looked forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with everyone involved.
