SOUDERTON, Pa., March 29, 2017 – Univest Bank and Trust Co. celebrated the opening of its newly constructed financial center in Chalfont, located at 195 E. Butler Avenue, with a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony. Univest executives were joined by Sean O’Connell from State Representative Kathy Watson’s office, Marilyln Becker, mayor of Chalfont Borough, and New Britain Township Manager, Eileen Bradley. Reverend Anita Bell from Lenape Valley Church delivered a dedication prayer.
Univest first began operating in Chalfont in 2003 through the acquisition of Suburban Community Bank. Built on the site of the former Univest office, this financial center features Univest’s new branch model focused on an improved customer experience that partners personal bankers with technology solutions. This model was first introduced in early 2015 and has been well received by customers.
Through a staff of experienced Personal Bankers, customers will have the convenience of working with one person for their entire banking experience. Whether cashing a check, making a deposit or applying for a loan, the Personal Banker who greets a customer is equipped to help with every banking need. For customers requiring in-person, more time-consuming banking transactions or consultative appointments, Personal Bankers will make arrangements for private meetings at the office after-hours to accommodate busy schedules.
”We are excited to bring this innovative new branch design to the Chalfont community,” said Jeff Schweitzer, president and CEO, Univest Corporation. “Since 2003 we have been committed to building strong relationships with the residents, businesses and nonprofit organizations located here and this new and improved financial center will allow us to continue to put our 140 years of financial expertise to use by serving those who live, work and play in this thriving community.”
Since its founding in 1876 in Souderton, Montgomery County, Univest has expanded its service area and offerings. In addition to traditional banking, Univest currently provides a full range of financial solutions including insurance, investments, mortgage banking, wealth management and equipment financing. It has offices in Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, Philadelphia and Lancaster counties as well as the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, and Cape May County in New Jersey.
