Peter G. Humphrey, Five Star Bank president and CEO, presided over the ceremony along with John Witkowski, Five Star Bank regional president, Jack Benjamin, chairman of Financial Institutions Inc. and Five Star Bank, David Dunning, Chili town supervisor and James Taylor, Taylor – The Builders CEO.
“We are very excited about continuing our expansion of Five Star Bank in the Rochester area,” said Humphrey. “We feel that the Chili Center location fits perfectly into our long-term growth strategy of placing a stronger emphasis on the greater Rochester market. Building a new branch in Chili Center will allow us to better serve our customers and expand our footprint within Monroe County.”
The future Chili Center branch will be located in the Wegmans plaza on Chili Avenue. The location is one of five Rochester area branches. The Greece and Henrietta branches were built in 2008.
