In a recent article published by Banking New York Magazine, four New York banks were selected as best in the state for the Banking Choice Awards in the categories of Customer Service, Technology, Community Contribution, and Overall Quality. These statewide awards for 2019 are the highest honor any bank in New York can achieve.
Country Bank took the top honors and received the gold medal in the statewide Community Contribution category. Unlike the other categories, this is a rating by prospects (non-customers) of each bank. So to win top prize, banks had to not only make strong contributions to their local areas, but they also had to get the word out about that contribution.
