Tompkins Bank of Castile is celebrating our 150th anniversary this spring. Together with our partners at Tompkins Insurance Agencies, and Tompkins Financial Advisors, we plan to acknowledge this important milestone in a number of ways and at several key events throughout the year. The anniversary celebration will kick off at the original Tompkins Bank of Castile branch on May 1 and continue at our annual WNY informational shareholders meeting on May 14 at 5:30 pm at the Genesee Country Village and Museum.
150 years is certainly a long time, but it’s even more impressive when you consider that fewer than 5% of the banks currently operating today in the United States have been around as long at Tompkins Bank of Castile. What’s even more impressive is that our mission and values have remained the same, allowing us to consistently perform at a level ranking among the best in the industry.
“For years, we’ve taken great pride in supporting the communities where we operate,” says John McKenna, President and CEO of Tompkins Bank of Castile. “We look forward to serving our customers for the next 150 years.”
Our organization is committed to creating long-term value for its clients, communities, and shareholders. Based in Batavia, we serve the GLOW region (Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming counties and beyond), Rochester, and recently expanded into Buffalo with the opening of our new Amherst location.
“We believe in the power of the local people working together to help our communities grow and thrive,” McKenna continued. Since 1869, Tompkins has valued its employees and invested in the communities they serve by volunteering and donating to charities, nonprofits, and civic organizations.
