A Pittsburgh-based publicly traded banking corporation will soon have a presence in downtown Greenville.
FNB Corp. (NYSE: FNB) and its banking subsidiary, First National Bank, continue to expand in the Upstate, which will soon be home to a new regional office.
FNB’s new Woodruff Office, located at 1217 Woodruff Road, is scheduled to open in the next several weeks, an FNB news release stated. By the end of the year, the company also expects to relocate its regional banking hub to 101 E. Washington St.
The new space, which will include a branch banking office, is situated in the heart of downtown Greenville and will house commercial and retail banking employees, fostering even greater efficiency and collaboration for FNB team members and enhanced visibility in the market, the release stated.
These locations build on FNB’s established commercial banking presence in Greenville and its extensive expansion throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, the release stated. Highlights of FNB’s recent growth include the acquisition of UB Bancorp; the addition of hundreds of ATMs in high-traffic retail locations in both states; and expanding its delivery channel in Charleston, including a planned office in Summerville, South Carolina.
“Our focus on both digital and in-person banking services, coupled with our success hiring strong leaders and excellent people, have served us well in de novo markets throughout our footprint, including in both South Carolina and North Carolina,” said Vincent J. Delie Jr., chairman, president and CEO of FNB Corp. and First National Bank, in the release. “FNB’s growing presence in Greenville and the Upstate South Carolina region reinforces our commitment to further build out our delivery channel, increase geographic coverage and enhance consumer access to our products, services and resources.”
The Greenville branches will feature the Bank’s modern concept design, innovative technology and convenient features, including:
- An eStore kiosk where customers can use FNB’s proprietary digital platform to shop for banking products and services and view financial education content.
- Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) that expand access to a banking representative through live, two-way video chat technology during extended hours seven days a week.
- Drive-thru banking and surface parking.
To support its growth in Upstate South Carolina, FNB will continue to expand its commercial banking and retail banking teams in the market, the release stated. Local operations are overseen by Michael Sarvis, Greenville market president and commercial banking team leader, and Andrea “Andy” Bunn, regional banking executive for western North Carolina and South Carolina.
