Thankful for Greenwich

When we sat down with Frank and asked what he was post thankful for he said “his team” and “the community” At First Bank of Greenwich they have everything the ‘BIG’ banks have with all the local feels. Emily "We are more like a private bank without any of the additional fees" and they have "no red tape" -- we joked that Frank is the red tape if you want to get something done and everyone has his cell phone. "No one is a number here" says Frank. XXX clients were able to receive PPP loans through the constant hardwork of the amazing team. We want the community to know that "we are here for them"
