The Bank of Greene County has been recognized for its contributions to the history of New York state. Senator Michelle Hinchey, D-Saugerties, sponsored the recognition and it was established by the state legislature in 2020. This registry honors businesses that have been operating for at least 50 years and have made significant contributions to their community.
As part of its 135th anniversary celebration, the bank was honored by about 75 officers, directors, and guests who helped ring the closing bell at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange on Monday, Jan. 22. Donald Gibson, president and chief executive officer of the bank, expressed excitement about the occasion and mentioned that it had been a remarkable year for the institution. He also talked about recent accomplishments such as raising interest rates on e-checking and e-savings accounts and being added to New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry.
