Bank of Utica President Tom Sinnott has been named the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Business Person of the Year.

Sinnott was honored at a reception at Hart’s Hill Inn on Thursday night, with his colleagues, family and friend. His grandfather, John Sinnott, founded the Bank of Utica in 1927, and Tom Sinnott is the third generation to operate the bank. His son, Barry, is operating the bank alongside him as the fourth generation to do so.

The Chamber’s Business Person of the Year Award is given to people who have shown exemplary service to the Chamber and/or community. It highlights individuals who are dedicated to impacting and improving the local business climate.

“Tonight is wonderful and unexpected honor,” Sinnott said. “We've been in the community for so long, for generations. My grandfather started the bank, oh, a long, long time ago, 1927. So we’re planning to be here for another 50, 60, 80 years – who knows.”
