After Flushing Bank announced that it had successfully completed its acquisition of Empire Bank in 2020, the branches gave Flushing a presence in Suffolk County for the first time in its 90-year history.
In December, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine and Town Councilman Dan Panico were on hand to celebrate the grand opening ribbon cutting at the new Shirley branch at 1044 William Floyd Parkway.
In addition to the ribbon cutting, the Supervisor presented a proclamation to Flushing Bank President and CEO, John R. Buran.
“I am happy to welcome Flushing Bank to their new branch location in Shirley,” said Romaine. “This is a reminder to all that the Town of Brookhaven is open for business and I encourage residents to stop by, meet the staff and learn more about the services provided at the bank.”
John R. Buran, President and CEO of Flushing Bank expressed his excitement to be in Suffolk County.
“We look forward to building upon the relationships that have been established with our customers and expanding our banking services to the individuals, families, and businesses in the surrounding areas,” Buran said in a statement. “As a community bank, we recognize the importance of giving back and demonstrating our commitment to the communities we serve. And, we are extremely excited to be a part of their economic recovery, growth, and development.”
