GRB Stories


Where in the
ROC is ‘Flat Phil’?

Join GRB’s President & CEO’s alter ego, ‘Flat Phil’, as he ventures out in the Rochester region to learn what Community Banking means to local businesses.

Introducing ‘Flat Phil’

In celebration of Community Banking Month, GRB is highlighting the innovative spirit that serves as the foundation of our region’s vibrant small business community.

In an homage to children’s literature icon Flat Stanley, GRB sent its President & CEO’s alter ego, ‘Flat Phil’, around town to visit some amazing local businesses. We are proud to document Flat Phil’s journey to retail stores, entertainment venues, manufacturing facilities, professional services firms, and more.

The diversity of our community, and the businesses built here, provides so much for us to celebrate during Community Banking Month. Join Flat Phil on his small business tour by following GRB’s social media channels or checking back on this page.

Take a look at the awesome places ‘Flat Phil’ has been so far, and follow along to see where he’ll go next!
