Mid Penn Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mid Penn Bancorp Inc., is opening a financial center in Allentown, its first full-service financial center in the Lehigh Valley.
A ribbon-cutting is being held today.
The new office, at 3900 Hamilton Blvd. in the Shops at Hamilton Center, received approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
“We are pleased to announce our plans for continued growth in the Lehigh Valley market and are excited to bring this modern and convenient facility to our existing customers,” Region President Frank Heston said in a release. “We also look forward to welcoming new individuals and businesses from the region to Mid Penn and our brand of banking.”
The bank is completing renovations of the new facility, which will feature multiple drive-thru lanes. Customers will be able to conduct traditional banking and account servicing, and have access to trust, wealth management and insurance products.
The office will also house regional commercial lending and cash management teams, led by Heston. Manager Mary Briody has been hired to oversee retail activities and day-to-day operations.
Mid Penn Bancorp Inc., the parent company of both Mid Penn Bank and MPB Financial Services Group LLC, operates retail locations in 16 counties throughout the state and has total assets of more than $4.3 billion.
