Richard J. Margenot, a Greenwich-based attorney at law, has joined First County Bank as a corporator. He was welcomed by the bank’s board of directors and officially became a corporator at the June 20 annual meeting.
The position of corporator is a unique opportunity offered to community representatives. First County Bank corporators play an important role as additional eyes and ears to the community. Margenot joins a group of 36 other bank corporators.
“First County Bank has had a professional relationship with Rick for many years, working together on a number of business and trust and estate matters,” said First County Bank Chairman and CEO Rey Giallongo. “As a lifelong resident of Greenwich and having practiced law in lower Fairfield County since 1985, he will have the best interests of the bank in mind when dealing with area businesses and individuals. Rick will make an excellent corporator. We look forward to his contribution and advice as we grow our franchise.”
The board of directors recruits potential corporators who have strong knowledge of the communities First County Bank serves and are successful in their business or profession.
