Location will be third retail office in Lancaster County
SOUDERTON, Pa., March 7, 2017 – Univest recently signed a lease and will begin renovations at its third retail financial center in Lancaster County, which will be located at 4242 Oregon Pike in Brownstown. The approximately 2,000 square-foot office is expected to open in June, 2017 and will feature two drive-thru banking lanes as well as a drive-up ATM.
This new location is expected to create three to four full-time jobs which will be filled by local financial professionals with experience in the Lancaster market. The financial center staff will be led by Jennifer Miller, vice president and area manager, who oversees consumer banking in Lancaster County.
“While many other banks are choosing to leave this area, we feel communities like Brownstown represent the heart of Main Street America, a niche that Univest has served well for more than 140 years,” explains Miller.
Between this new Brownstown location, a Strasburg financial center opening in April, the Willow Street financial center, which opened in summer 2016, and its regional office in the Greenfield Corporate Center, which opened in spring 2016, Univest will employ approximately 30 people in Lancaster County. In addition to consumer banking, Univest has an agricultural lending team led by Dale Hershey and a commercial lending team led by Bryan Moyer.
”We are excited to continue our expansion in the Lancaster community,” said Mike Keim, president, Univest Bank and Trust Co. “We have received a warm welcome at our Willow Street location and are delighted to have the opportunity to bring Univest’s comprehensive financial solutions and exceptional service to the residents, businesses and nonprofit organizations in Lancaster County.”
