About The Berkshire Bank

Welcome to The Berkshire Bank! 

During our many years, we have been a true community bank, investing in the local community and supporting the banking needs of local people. We have a long tradition of serving and supporting our communities. Beginning that tradition in 1871, Goshen Savings Bank was affectionately known as "Your Hometown Friend" and today, almost 150 years later, after our acquisition and merger of Goshen Bank, The Berkshire Bank is proud to continue to offer highly exceptional products and services. 

The Berkshire Bank proudly serves as a New York State chartered, FDIC insured commercial bank. Our New York City branches celebrated 30 years of excellence. In fact, in these many years, we have only had one objective, being The Bank that Puts Your Interest First.

Community banking to us means providing the products, advice and services to our clients to help them achieve their financial goals. Our organization is about more than our involvement though; it is also about our talent. Our experience and expertise is solid at all levels of the organization and many of our officers have more than 30 years of experience. The talent located in our branch network is also tops in today’s industry. These are the faces of today and tomorrow offering customers stability that is unmatched in today’s retail banking environment.

As President and CEO of The Berkshire Bank, I wish to reassure you that this Bank will continue to be an independent, locally managed bank and that the interests of our customers and the communities we serve will continue to come first.  Whether your focus is business or personal, whether your need is loan or deposit, whether the specialist you wish to talk to is in the mortgage, commercial loan or branch network, we are trained, experienced and ready to assist you.
