United Bank Plans to Open Bank Branch in Greenwich
United Bank of Hartford, Connecticut today announced that they plan to open a new full-service bank branch at 415 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, Connecticut.
The application is still subject to regulatory approval but if approved this would be United Bank’s 54th branch location within its Connecticut and Massachusetts footprint.
The proposed branch includes multiple teller stations, ATM access, a conference room and private office space for branch managers and other bankers to consult with customers. In addition to retail banking activity, the branch provides a conduit to commercial and mortgage banking as well as financial advisory services. This would be United Bank’s second location in Fairfield County. The Bank opened a commercial loan production office (LPO) on Green Farms Road in Westport, Connecticut in 2015.
“Our Fairfield County commercial banking team has been doing very well since we opened that LPO more than three years ago. By establishing a branch in Greenwich, we are directly responding to what our customers have been telling us: they want United Bank to have a greater physical presence in Fairfield County where they can conduct more of their banking activity,” said William H.W. Crawford, IV, CEO of United Bank. “This market has great demographics – among the best in the country – so we’re making sure we have lower Fairfield County covered and we look forward to enhancing our commercial, business and retail banking opportunities through this branch in Greenwich.”
