Five Star Bank plans to move residential mortgage operations employees to Amherst from a downtown location in late January.
The Warsaw-based bank received the green light from a state regulator to open the office, at Sheridan Meadows Corporate Park. The group of 16 employees had been working from offices in back of Five Star's Fountain Plaza branch but had outgrown the space. The Amherst location will not be a bank branch.
The mortgage office will be in a different part of the same building as Robshaw & Julian, an investment adviser that Five Star parent Financial Institutions recently acquired.
