First National Bank LI Celebrates Opening of New Corporate Headquarters

First National Bank LI is proud to celebrate 95 Years of Community Banking, marking the anniversary with the grand opening of a new Corporate Headquarters and Melville Branch location at 275 Broad Hollow Road.

Founded in 1927 in Glen Head, NY, First National Bank LI has grown to support businesses, nonprofits and municipalities large and small with a full array of commercial banking, lending, and cash management solutions. In addition, the Bank provides personal banking, consumer lending, and a range of investment services for families, with locations across a 41-branch network spanning Suffolk, Nassau, Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.

The Bank cut the ribbon on its new Corporate Headquarters, repositioning its team of banking professionals for improved access to clients across the Island. The Bank also celebrated the relocation of its Melville Branch, now offering expanded banking solutions, including drive-up service and a 24-hour ATM for your convenience. The Melville Branch still has the same knowledgeable and trustworthy banking team led by longtime Branch Manager Paula Lavrado.

"While there is much progress to celebrate over the Bank's 95-year history, one constant has remained the same: providing customer-first, relationship-driven service to the clients who entrust us with their business," said Chris Becker, President and CEO. "I'd like to congratulate everyone who has contributed to our position as Long Island's longest-standing, truly local, independent Bank."

The Melville location showcases the Bank's new brand, promoting a modern and bright design, featuring its updated blue and grey logo and the pointed tagline "Go First. Go Far." These changes celebrate the community pillar's 95-year history of success while nodding to opportunities for growth when banking with First National Bank LI.

First National Bank LI has been celebrating its banner year with client appreciation events and 95th Anniversary loan promotions, offering commemorative rates for its Home Equity Lines of Credit and Small Business Lines of Credit, in addition to competitive Certificate of Deposit (CD) rates. Team members have also volunteered over 250 hours with local service organizations, giving back with hands-on community service through its social responsibility program known as "CommunityFirst."

"This hands-on service includes assistance at food pantries, community gardens, senior centers and more, and reflects our commitment to supporting the local communities where we live and work." said Richard Perro, EVP and Chief Retail Officer. "Our clients are what make our mission possible. We invite you to stop in at one of our many Branch locations to meet our teams and explore other introductory promotions."

First National Bank LI offers a full complement of personal and business banking and lending solutions with the technology needed to manage day-to-day finances with ease. Coupled with our commitment to relationship service, clients can benefit from access to the local decision-makers.
