First County Bank has some great news to share. We’ve just completed four (4) months in production of the Bank’s first video posting! Not that it took that long to film and edit but, the story line reveals our new office space at 3001 Summer Street in Stamford!
Some of you may recognize the address as the recent new home of Pitney Bowes located in the Bull’s Head section of Stamford. As of May 4th, the first floor of 3001 Summer Street is the new home of our Business Banking/Commercial Lending division, the team at First County Advisors, our wealth management division; and our Executive Offices. Our space provides plenty of visitor parking and most importantly, easy access for our customers.
Having not done a project like this before, it reaffirmed our belief in the importance of working with community based partners. The teams assembled to build and design the space – our landlord at Ashforth Properties; our architectural design firm, Esposito Design Associates; and, last but not least, our own Board of Directors and Bank staff could not have done a better job. Not only did the build-out go smoothly, but working collaboratively with our partners resulted in nearly no punch list or post-completion projects!
We celebrated our “Grand Opening” with a ceremonial ribbon cutting with Stamford Mayor David Martin and other community leaders on the evening of May 20th. A great time was had by all with Bank staff conducting many “walking tours” of the new offices.
If you have an opportunity to visit with First County Advisors or our Commercial Lenders, please stop in. We’re very proud of our new space and the technology being used here. Just as we’ve been for the past 164 years, First County Bank will be here for a while!
