OBTC's Trust Services Division Moves to Chester

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (March 17, 2017) — Orange Bank & Trust is proud to announce that on March 10, 2017, the Trust Services Division of the Bank moved its operations from the headquarters in Middletown, NY, to the Chester office at 91 Brookside Avenue in Chester, NY.

Orange Bank & Trust’s steady expansion has caused the Bank to outgrow its capacity at headquarters and the move of the Trust Services Division will help to alleviate some of this pressure.  Although they moved to a different location, the Trust Services Division will continue to meet with their clients at any of the Bank’s thirteen branches, reflecting their ongoing commitment to client convenience.

“We really wanted to limit the impact that this relocation could have on our clients and our employees and I don’t think we could have found a better location for our team—a beautiful, historic building located in a central location immediately off the highway,” said Michael Gilfeather, President & CEO of Orange Bank & Trust Company.  “The trust business has been a core service since the Bank opened in 1892.”
