After 166 years, Poughkeepsie Savings Bank is shaking up the status quo. The New York State thrift was officially renamed Bank of the Hudson Tuesday. It had been named for its hometown since it was chartered in 1831.
But Joseph B. Tockarshewsky, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of the $850 million-asset thrift, said the new name will better reflect the Hudson Valley market the thrift now serves. Bank of the Hudson has 15 branches and seven loan offices in New York and New Jersey.
