It’s Official: Rockville Banks Cuts the Ribbon to their New Branch in Hamden
William H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rockville Bank and Rockville Financial, Inc. (RCKB), joined by the Bank’s new Hamden Banking Team, made it official as they cut the ribbon to their first-ever, full service banking branch in the Greater New Haven located at 2290 Whitney Avenue in Hamden.
The Rockville Bank Team and Hamden branch staff had the honor of having Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson join them for the ribbon cutting ceremony, which occurred at 12:00 pm on Thursday, February 6. The Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce also played a big role in the event with some of its members also present to help cut the ribbon.
Rockville Bank’s Hamden location is a 2,000 square foot branch, full-service branch with local bankers onsite who provide retail and commercial deposit and loan products, investment advisory services, mortgage loan origination, small business products, night deposit services, drive-thru teller and ATM. There is also a private banker based at the Branch.
The ribbon cutting kicks-off a four-week long celebration at the new branch which includes a Welcome Money Market special and four certificate raffle prizes that will be awarded each Saturday from February 15 through March 8.
Rockville Bank opened a New Haven County Commercial Banking Office in Hamden at 2319 Whitney Avenue in July 2011. In addition, Rockville plans further growth in New Haven County when it opens a 5,000 square foot “banking center” later this year at 117 Washington Avenue in North Haven.
“Rockville Bank has achieved great success over the past two years when it comes to commercial and mortgage lending in the greater New Haven area. Our growth strategy is to continue to expand in this area by adding full-service banking branches with top talent from the area to complement the success of our loan production office already located in Hamden,” said Crawford. “A conveniently-located Rockville Bank branch in Hamden will meet the demand we are witnessing for first-class personal and business banking services in the area.”
“At Rockville Bank, we are very proud of our 155-year tradition of providing superior customer service in every interaction while supporting the markets we serve through the generosity of our employees, community engagement and the Rockville Bank Foundation. This unwavering commitment to the community will be recognized and enjoyed by in Hamden, North Haven and the greater New Haven area for many years to come,” Crawford added.
Starting February 15 to March 8, the Banking Center will be holding a four-week long public grand opening celebration for new customers and others who want to learn more about Rockville Bank, meet the Hamden Team and find out about special offerings.
