The National Bank of Coxsackie opened its newest branch here on Nov 3, 2012. Gathered outside are, Asst VP Joseph Sinski, Assemblyman Pete Lopez, Bank President James Warren, Sr VP Mark Maraglio, Bank VP Donald Gardner, and Marketing Communications Manager Nicole Nazi.
Inside the bank, Pete Lopez spoke with Jim Warren and Joe Sinski, welcoming them to this area. Some other branches of the National Bank of Coxsackie, in Greene County, are also in the assemblyman's wide-ranging district.
NYS Senator Jim Seward was on hand, talking with Jim Warren and Mark Maraglio. The bank president said he had been familiar with Middleburgh for years and, after studying the demographics of the area, it seemed to be a good fit for the bank.
Mr. Warren went on to say that it is the people who make a community, not the buildings. Senator Seward commented that the National Bank of Coxsackie is a great community bank and would be here for many years.
The bank lobby was very welcoming, festively decorated, and offered a variety of refreshments. There were many bank employees on hand to answer any questions and several new accounts were opened. During the course of the day, the bank was visited by many residents and local officials.
Middleburgh Mayor Matt Avitabile said it was a step of economic progress for the community.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was scheduled for 1pm, with bank personnel and local officials participating in the moment.
