Peoples National Bank Opens 2nd Branch In Centralia
Peoples National Bank is excited to be open at its new facility at 901 West Broadway. Tom Ballagh, a long-time customer was the first customer of the new branch when the doors opened on Monday, September 9, 2013. “Tom was also the first customer of the 400 East Broadway location when it opened in 2001. That location has done so well for us and we wanted Tom to be the first customer at the new facility,” said Donna Cooksey, Retail Sales Manager.
Peoples National Bank has served consumers, businesses, schools, municipalities and agricultural customers since 1909. Since opening in 1909 in McLeansboro, Peoples National Bank has expanded throughout Southern Illinois and parts of Missouri. Having two branches in the same community is not new to Peoples National Bank with multiple facilities in Mt. Vernon, Benton, Harrisburg, and Marion.
“One of the most exciting parts of the project was to add five new employees to the staff,” according to Bo Baer, Community Bank President. “I feel we have the best staff available to serve the community and provide personal banking to each customer. This in addition to how great the remodel of the location has turned out.”
We are proud to introduce our knowledgeable and helpful staff at our 901 West Main Centralia location: Bo Baer, Community Bank President; Donna Cooksey, Retail Sales Manager; Brenda Grable, Relationship Banker; Greg Reichenbacher, Mortgage Specialist; Sharon Ortmann, Commercial Account Manager; Janet Hedden, Head Teller; and Tellers Amber Rohrscheib, Chelsea Bradley, Jessica Ingersoll and Kaylee Sandahl. We also would like to introduce Angela Vincent, Assistant Retail Sales Manager. Angela will be located at our 400 East Broadway branch. Peoples National Bank officially opened its doors at the 901 West Main Street location on Monday, September 9, 2013. The Grand Opening Celebration will be held on Friday, September 13, 2013. Come join us for free food, drinks and specials. “We have had tremendous support from the community in this project and hope everyone can join our celebration on Friday,” says Community Bank President, Bo Baer.
