Stamford officials were on hand Wednesday to welcome First Niagara Bank back to the city following a relocation to their new offices at 2386 Summer St.
Mayor Michael Pavia made some comments about his excitement to see the improved digs and participated in the ribbon cutting.
"I'm officially here to welcome you to your new establishment," Pavia said. "I want to compliment the entire staff for the hard work you put in to make this work. I'm talking to people who recognize the value proposition the city of Stamford has to offer."
Director of Economic Development Laure Aubuchon was also on hand to welcome the business.
"The mayor told me when I joined one of my first priorities would be to encourage small and medium businesses to grow in the city of Stamford," Aubuchon said. "It's banks like First Niagara that really provide the lifeblood for those organizations to thrive in the city of Stamford."
First Niagara Branch Manager Same Delgado also presented Domus Kids' Julia Wade with a checkfor $2,500, explaining the bank likes to make donations to charitable organizations regularly in towns where they operate.
