Hanover Bank, headquartered in Mineola, has opened a new business banking center in Hauppauge.
The center marks the bank’s ninth location, and is located at 410 Motor Parkway.
“This is an important milestone for us,” Michael Puorro, the bank’s chairman and CEO, said in a news release about the Hauppauge location.
“We are thrilled to be a part of Suffolk County and look forward to serving the banking needs of so many vibrant businesses and residents through our commercial, municipal, and retail banking products and services,” he added.
“The recent unrest and robust consolidation activity within our industry has created substantial voids in the quality and level of service available to many businesses, and we are eager to bring our banking solutions and highly personalized service to eastern Long Island,” Puorro said.
Puorro said that the bank is “confident there is enormous growth potential in this vital and underserved market, and we will capitalize on these opportunities. As a financially strong and stable institution, we expect to create value for all our stakeholders by supporting our clients, becoming an integral part of this economic hub, and growing together with our clients.”
The Hauppauge location will support a full range of online and in-person banking services, with a focus on serving the unique needs of small to medium-sized businesses and consumers throughout the region.
The bank’s new location means additional jobs for the region.
“We are hiring locally and are so proud to be working with the incredibly talented workforce that exists in the area,” Mac Wilcox, Hanover’s president, said in a statement.
“We look forward to supporting the many families as well as the countless thriving commercial and small businesses that call this area home,” Wilcox added. “Our relationship-based philosophy of banking is the cornerstone of our commitment to serve Suffolk County and assist our clients in reaching their financial goals.”
The bank anticipates continued growth of its customer base throughout Suffolk.
“Customer enthusiasm for Hanover Bank’s expansion in Suffolk County has been extremely positive, and we look forward to building on this momentum as we grow with our expanding customer base,” Puorro said.
