PITTSFIELD, MA (January 10, 2024) – NBT Bank celebrated its newly-relocated office in downtown Pittsfield at 75 North Street with a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday morning. The office, previously located a short distance away at 54 North Street, continues to offer local, full-service banking.

“While we didn’t move far, we are pleased to be offering enhanced services to our downtown customers and the community through this relocation,” said NBT Bank Branch Manager Karl Mirke. “Our new office has a larger customer service area, 24-hour ATM access and additional parking options.”

“NBT Bank has been a staple of the downtown since 2014,” said Mayor Peter Marchetti. “This move, within the heart of the downtown, provides NBT Bank the opportunity to be in a larger, more visible space, offering more options to their customers while delivering valuable financial services to our residents and businesses.”

NBT officials also presented representatives from MassDevelopment’s Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) with a $2,000 contribution to support the Let It Shine! Public Art Partnership. This organization is a group of Pittsfield-based community members formed to organize public art and revitalization on North Street. The donation will help fund the installation of four small panel murals in the Burbank Place Alley and build on other downtown strategic investments.

“It’s terrific to see NBT Bank continuing to invest in downtown Pittsfield,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Dan Rivera. “This office will add to the vibrancy of the neighborhood, deliver access to financial services for local businesses and community members, and represents an important commitment to the future of Pittsfield. We’re also thankful for NBT’s co-investment and partnership with its financial contribution to the ‘Let It Shine!’ public art initiative.”

In addition to celebrating their new downtown Pittsfield location, NBT also recently announced that Amanda Goewey has been promoted to Massachusetts Market Manager with responsibility for overseeing retail banking at NBT’s 8 branches in Berkshire County.

Goewey joined NBT in August 2023 with the merger of Salisbury Bank into NBT Bank. She has nearly 15 years of experience in banking, including positions in branch banking, trust and wealth management, and home lending. Prior to her promotion, Goewey was a multi-site branch manager.

“The Berkshire County team has provided an incredible support for myself and my colleagues during our integration with NBT," Goewey said. "I am thrilled at our continued growth and collaboration, and I look forward to all we will accomplish as a unified team in Massachusetts.”
