Queensborough National Bank to Launch First Office in Savannnah
Located at 216 US Highway 80 West near Garden City, the bank will offer business and consumer deposit services, loans, mortgages, an ATM, and a drive-through in the new location. The bank has operated a lending office in Savannah for several years and will relocate all operations and staff to the new office.
“This move was a natural expansion for us and one we had planned for some time,” Bill Easterlin, President and CEO of Queensborough National Bank and Trust. “Given the challenges in the banking industry right now, I think our expansion says a lot about the strength of our organization.
The bank has included many green and sustainable features in the new building and will pursue LEED CI certification.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction.
The bank also encourages clients to use features that reduce waste and improve efficiency including paperless banking, online services, and remote deposit.
“There are many businesses out there 'going green' so to speak, but by reusing and upgrading an existing building using LEED as the benchmark, I think we are clearly demonstrating our commitment to sustainability,” English said.
The event will begin with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00 a.m. and feature a variety of giveaways and free food throughout the day.
