Here you are Family As one of the few family-controlled banks, Country Bank remains true to the vision that it is a city bank with country values. It’s what sets Country Bank apart and why since 1988, individuals, families, and businesses have turned to us for their banking needs. Our History “Throughout the three decades that Country Bank has been in existence, the core mission of the organization has remained the same – to be a community bank in every sense,” said Chairman Joseph M. Murphy. Soon after the Bank was founded in 1988, Chairman Murphy joined the Country Bank Board of Directors. With his strong background in investment real estate, he was able to lead the Bank’s expansion into the Bronx with the opening of our Woodlawn branch in 1994 and our Riverdale branch in 1996. We ended the 1990s with the opening of branches in Scarsdale and Manhattan. As our presence in New York City grew, we moved our headquarters from Carmel, New York to Manhattan in 2001, and in 2015 cut the ribbon on our new Flagship branch on Third Avenue between 41st and 42nd Street.
