Our History Since 1999 First Central Savings Bank has grown from a simple concept to what we are today: a vibrant, thriving community bank that hasn’t wavered from its original aim of friendly, personalized service for the community. Our founding Chairman, Joseph Pistilli served as the first chief executive officer and still serves as an active Chairman of the Board. In 2017, Ed Petrosky was appointed as president and CEO and continues to lead the bank into future growth.
Since our humble beginning, we’ve striven to serve the community by growing to 8 branches, 5,500 customers, over 100 employees, and $612 million in assets.
Our Mission We are committed to enriching our communities, driving local economic growth, and cultivating lasting relationships by putting the best interest of our clients first. These values are a summary of who we are as individuals and how we conduct ourselves as a bank. They’re also a statement of how we view our responsibilities to each other, to our communities, and to the world in which we all live. Our goal is to fill a void in banking by providing old-fashioned personal service with a smile; a throw-back to the days of hospitality and good manners that we were all raised on, something you just won’t find anywhere else. We are a true community bank in that we make our decisions locally and have a vested interest in the people and businesses we serve. With our corporate center in Glen Cove, our branches are located in:
While our footprint has certainly grown, we take pride in playing an active role within the local communities we serve by knowing our customers and understanding their unique needs. We strive to offer you a highly personalized approach to banking. It’s banking the way it used to be, only better.
