Since our humble beginnings, in a small office, Empire State Bank has made loans and opened accounts for countless businesses, aspiring entrepreneurs, nonprofits, professionals and individuals while providing highly personal service to clients. Today we offer the same family culture intertwined with the convenience of leading industry technology to run your business:
Empire State Bank was founded by a group of entrepreneurs and community leaders committed to helping the local business community thrive. At the time, the landscape of business banking was changing; banks were closing locations, offering cookie cutter products and services and focusing on replacing personal service with technology. With our founders’ understanding of the dynamic environment and entrepreneurial spirit they set out to create a bank with a mission to provide personal service and help build the local businesses and communities where we live and work.
We actively work to improve people’s lives and build thriving communities. When you bank with Empire State Bank, through progressive investments, your money is re-invested back into our local business communities through community-based loans, philanthropic contributions and volunteer service of our employees that helps fund new businesses, expand businesses, create new jobs and support a multitude of initiatives that contribute to a successful local economy.
