Country Bank

Our Story

Here you are Family

As one of the few family-controlled banks, Country Bank remains true to the vision that it is a city bank with country values. It’s what sets Country Bank apart and why since 1988, individuals, families, and businesses have turned to us for their banking needs.

Our History

“Throughout the three decades that Country Bank has been in existence, the core mission of the organization has remained the same – to be a community bank in every sense,” said Chairman Joseph M. Murphy.

Soon after the Bank was founded in 1988, Chairman Murphy joined the Country Bank Board of Directors. With his strong background in investment real estate, he was able to lead the Bank's expansion into the Bronx with the opening of our Woodlawn branch in 1994 and our Riverdale branch in 1996. We ended the 1990s with the opening of branches in Scarsdale and Manhattan.

As our presence in New York City grew, we moved our headquarters from Carmel, New York to Manhattan in 2001, and in 2015 cut the ribbon on our new Flagship branch on Third Avenue between 41st and 42nd Street.

Our Future

 Today,  we’re proud to be an FDIC-insured, full-service commercial bank – $675 million strong in assets and over $60 million in capital – dedicated to making life better for our customers and communities.

“As we reach this milestone, we reflect on the role that Country Bank has played in the lives of our fellow New Yorkers. It is these personal relationships that inspired our message of ‘Here You Are Family," explained Carolyn Murphy, Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer.

"Our leadership team possesses a lifetime of business, real estate, and banking experience that allows us to provide steady leadership for Country Bank as we look ahead to what the next thirty years will bring.”  said President and CEO Joe Murphy Jr.

We are family controlled like 70% of American businesses, that’s an essential and significant difference—we understand our clients in a way that commercial bankers can’t. For individuals, that means you can count on us to provide products and services that are in your best interest, offering lower fees and competitive rates. For businesses, it means, you’ll have access to smart and affordable banking services and loans, a team of dedicated bankers to support you, as well as direct access to decision makers to give you fast decisions on loans.

Here, we’re  ready to take care of you.
