WHITE PLAINS, NY (March 10, 2016). The Westchester Bank is honored to be a recipient of the prestigious 2016 Business Hall of Fame Award. The Bank has been selected in the category of Small Business Success and will be awarded through The Business Council of Westchester this April 19th at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle, NY.

Our special thanks go out to Marsha Gordon and The Business Council of Westchester for continuing to foster, unite and strengthen all facets of Westchester’s business community.” Mr. Tolomer continued, “This award is the result of an experienced banking team that is able to execute the bank strategy, Banking Made Personal. It begins with our valued customers who have put their trust in a community bank that understands their financial concerns and banking needs. Our success as an organization is attributed to the hard work and dedication of our entire staff, along with the confidence that shareholders and Board members have placed in our management team. Collectively, we’ve had the very good fortune to exceed even our most optimistic projections for growth and success.” Tolomer concluded.
