Coop Bank Opens New Branch, Unveils New Signage

Pittsfield Cooperative Bank (Coop Bank) opened the doors to its newest and fifth branch office, 734 Williams Street, on Saturday, March 30th. The location has not been occupied by a financial institution since late 2021. This is the first branch for Coop Bank since opening its Dalton Avenue location in 1999. The Williams Street branch features a new drive-up ATM/ITM, two drive-up teller lanes, safe deposit boxes and four interior teller windows. The branch is open Monday through Saturday, including the following hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (M-Th); 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (F); and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Sa).

The Williams Street branch will be managed by Joseph DelSoldato III. Mr. DelSoldato was hired in late February as a Vice President, Branch Manager, and specifically selected due to his familiarity with the location. DelSoldato was most recently a vice president, relationship manager at Berkshire Bank for the past three and a half years. Prior to that he served as a branch officer, financial services representative as well as roles in business development and relationship management at several banks in central and western Massachusetts. He has worked in the financial services industry for more than fifteen years, and received his Bachelor of Science in business administration from Westfield State University.

“Coop Bank is pleased to announce Joe as the manager of our newest branch,” stated CEO J. Jay Anderson. “He has tremendous experience in branch operations and business development, and is well-connected in the Berkshires, Pioneer Valley, and eastern New York.”  

Branch operations include many familiar faces and technology

Joining DelSoldato at the Williams Street branch will be Scott Cowlin, vice president, relationship banker; Alexarey Overbaugh, head teller; Paige Barry, teller; and Tori Bishop, teller. Customers and the community will recall that Cowlin was most recently Coop Bank’s branch manager and Overbaugh a teller at its main office in Pittsfield. Barry and Bishop worked as float tellers, respectively. The branch also features a Hyosung interactive teller machine (ITM). This new machine will initially function as a traditional ATM, but the Bank will be enabling its full technological capabilities and rolling out video-assisted transactions at Williams Street and additional locations over the next several months.  

The Williams Street branch is the first location featuring Pittsfield Cooperative Bank’s new logo and signage that was announced in its February anniversary release. A key complement to the branch signage includes a new interior LED lit monument sign designed and manufactured by Graphic Impact Signs that will eventually become a principal element at all of the Bank’s locations.

Pittsfield Cooperative Bank plans to have several promotions throughout the year to commemorate its 135th anniversary. Additional information and promotions are detailed on its website,
