Community Bank, N.A. Completes First Niagara Branch Acquisition

Community Bank, N.A. is pleased to announce the completion of its acquisition of three branches owned by First Niagara Bank, N.A. (“First Niagara”) in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The acquired branches are located in Canandaigua and Geneva (2).

The acquisition, which adds over $100 million in deposits and $55 million in loans, respectively, strengthens the Company’s ability to provide exceptional service to consumer, business banking and private banking clients in the Finger Lakes region while growing its presence and acquiring new customers.

Following the acquisition, the First Niagara branch located at 470 Exchange Street in Geneva was consolidated with the Community Bank, N.A. branch located at 5 Seneca Street in Geneva to better serve the new and existing customers. Customers located in Geneva can also be served by the Community Bank branch located at 811 Canandaigua Road or any other Community Bank location. Both First Niagara and Community Bank have provided information to customers regarding their accounts over the past several months. Customers with further questions can contact any Community Bank branch office or call 1-800-388-4679.

“We are delighted to welcome 20 new employees and 7,000 new customers to Community Bank,” said Mark Tryniski, Community Bank’s CEO. “We have worked very hard to make the transition as simple as possible for customers and we appreciate the dedication of both our Community Bank associates and the First Niagara team.”
