December 6, 2007- Aquesta Bank is pleased to announce the opening of the bank’s first branch in Davidson, NC on Monday, December 3. The branch, which is located next to the new Harris Teeter in the Davidson Commons Shopping Center, will operate as a full service bank providing outstanding customer service and convenience to the Davidson community.
The urban-style branch, designed by Roger Layman Architecture in Davidson, will have three customer service stations, along with a night deposit box and ATM that will be accessible 24-hours a day. The branch will offer full service amenities including online banking and bill pay, merchant services, cash management with direct deposit, credit cards, lines of credit, remote check depositing, commercial loans, business & residential loans, and other financial services.
Mary Craven, a 10-year resident of Davidson, joined Aquesta a year ago to head up the branch as the Davidson City Executive. Craven, a former Sales & Service Manager/Loan Officer with First Charter Bank in Davidson, brings over 10 years of financial services experience to the Aquesta Bank team. Other staff members joining the branch include Assistant Branch Manager, Theresa Frey; Tellers, Kristin Phillips and Linda Brodbeck and Vice President/Commercial Lender Ed Keller.
A grand opening celebration for the branch will be held in February of 2008, when Harris Teeter is scheduled to open. Aquesta will also hold a Davidson community arts project, inviting local artists to submit designs for an interior wall of the branch.
Davidson branch hours will be Monday – Thursday, from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, Friday 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM and Saturdays 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
The bank is also excited to announce that it has recently received regulatory approval for a branch in Mooresville, with a location yet to be determined. Aquesta Bank’s corporate headquarters building in Cornelius is also under construction and should be open early in 2008.
