Already with 14 other branches in Brooklyn, Investors Bank has opened up another location at 896 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint.
Banking executives and community partners enjoyed a VIP reception on Tuesday night, despite the lack of air conditioning and a friendly visit by firefighters.
At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Domenick Cama, the bank’s chief operating officer (COO), said they will be an integral part of the community.
Results are already starting to show. According to Kendall Charter, the executive director of the Greenpoint YMCA, Investors Bank has already pledged $5,000 to the local Y for its programs.
The local bank will be run by branch manager Debbie Hootam, who grew up in East Flatbush and has 19 years in the banking industry. She said she hopes to create a community-driven atmosphere and strong relationships with local partners.
