Flushing Financial Completes Integration of Empire Bancorp

Flushing Financial, the parent holding company for Flushing Bank, completed the integration of Empire Bancorp.

“I am pleased to report that we successfully completed the transfer of Empire National Bank’s customers to our core systems over this past weekend. We completed this systems conversion in an exceptionally efficient manner — within weeks of the closing of the acquisition,” John R. Buran, president and CEO of Flushing Financial, said. “I am extremely proud of all our employees who worked tirelessly and demonstrated superb teamwork, in spite of the challenges presented by the pandemic, to ensure that this integration was a smooth transition for the former Empire customers. With the integration behind us, we are well-positioned to begin to realize the operating efficiencies and growth potential of our new organization.”

As previously reported in August, Flushing Financial and Empire Bancorp agreed to complete their merger under an extended time frame.
