Genesee Regional Bank was founded by successful local businessmen, E. Philip Saunders and Dan Gullace, with a vision of re-establishing a community bank presence and helping to grow small business in the Rochester area. From this vision emerged not only a successful financial institution, but one known for being a trusted advisor to small business clients in a wide range of industries.
President and CEO Philip L. Pecora leads GRB with a customer-centric philosophy that sets us apart as powerful advocates for our clients. GRB’s original vision of growing local business has expanded to include helping individuals, nonprofits, and municipalities enhance their financial position. In 2020, GRB was the leading U.S. Small Business Administration lender in the Rochester region.
The 2013 addition of residential mortgage services to GRB brought yet another critical service to our customers and the local community. With loan approvals issued right here in Rochester, GRB’s residential mortgage team has grown rapidly and is now one of the leading mortgage lenders in the region.
With assets topping more than $750 million, GRB offers competitive products and rates — but with the added benefit of hometown service. The Rochester area has seen a number of financial institutions come and go. GRB, however, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021 and remains Here. For You.
