STATE COLLEGE, PA – Greg Hayes, President and Chief Operating Officer of Kish Bank, has announced that Kish Bank has completed the purchase of a branch office in Pine Grove Mills. Located at 511 East Pine Grove Road, formerly the site of Riverview Bank, the new Kish branch is expected to open in early July, becoming the Bank’s nineteenth location and its fifth in Centre County. Kish has also hired the former location’s branch staff, Kathleen Auman and Linda Sauers, who have joined Kish’s State College-based banking team.
“Communities like Pine Grove Mills are integral to the fabric of the State College area,” said Hayes. “While many banks continue to permanently close their local branches, Kish Bank remains committed to supporting our communities with a highly client-focused approach that can only be achieved through local, personal service.”
Kish will open the new branch quickly in order to continue providing banking services to the Pine Grove Mills community, but plans to renovate the location in the near future. Hayes stated that the renovation will deliver Kish’s vision for “the future of community banking” by providing in-person banking solutions through local, trusted professionals; financial education through open community engagement space; and expanded convenience for customers through innovative digital and video technology.
“Kish is bringing together the value of both relationship banking and innovative technology to ensure our communities have access to local, convenient, and personalized banking solutions, and that our clients have the choice of banking in person, remotely, or anywhere in between,” said Hayes.
