Message From Our CEO

Updated June 14, 2023

As the newly appointed President and CEO of Arrow and Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company, in addition to my continuing role as President and CEO of Saratoga National Bank and Trust Company, I’d like to reinforce our commitment to community banking, assure you that our Company remains financially strong and thank you for your relationship with us.

Please know that the Arrow Family of Companies, which includes Glens Falls National Bank, Saratoga National Bank and Upstate Agency, LLC., is focused on our mission to strengthen financial lives. We’ve experienced many changes in our 170-plus years, and we have always adapted and stayed true to our core values.

Dedicated to Community Banking

Some of you may know me as the Saratoga National Bank President and CEO, a role I assumed in 2012 and am honored to keep. But I first joined this Company in 1987 as a commercial lender and spent my first two decades here helping to grow our Glens Falls National Bank and insurance businesses.

During my 35 years with the Company, I’ve experienced community banking at its best – helping our neighbors buy their first homes, manage daily finances, grow their savings and leave a legacy. We help local businesses grow and we support local non-profits through giving and volunteering, which in turn, strengthens financial lives.

Looking Forward Together

We are a team of 500+ professionals and together we will continue to provide full service and support to our customers and our communities.

I look forward to further conversations on how we can deliver value for you. Again, thank you for choosing Saratoga National Bank and Trust Company.
