Ed Lutz_Executive_October 10, 2013Greater Hudson Bank, N.A. (“the Bank”) (OTCQB: GHDS), a locally based community bank serving the Hudson Valley region, recently announced the formation of a new Ambassador Council. The Council which is made up of notable and well respected locally based business and community leaders was established to share the benefits of working with a local Bank that offers extraordinary personal service combined with state-of the art banking services to local businesses, not-for-profits and municipalities. “The advantage of being a local community bank is that we are afforded the opportunity to work closely with our business customers and consequently understand their unique needs and financial concerns. We are very pleased to initiate this new council because our highly regarded ambassadors are centers of influence within their professions and will help us to continue to establish deep rooted relationships within our marketplace,” said Ed Lutz, president and CEO of Greater Hudson Bank.
