Traditions Bank (OTC Pink: YRKB) has announced plans to open the organization’s first full-service branch in Lancaster County. Subject to customary regulatory approvals, the 3,600-square-foot office will be located at 1687 Oregon Pike and anticipates serving customers in the Fall of 2020.
“More than seventeen years ago, Traditions Bank was strategically created to serve relationship-minded clients seeking financial solutions to satisfy their unique needs,” said President and CEO Eugene Draganosky. “We believe that, in addition to responsiveness, service quality, and value, people want to trust and relate to their banks. Our commitment to a culture of service has endeared us to our existing communities served, and we are excited to share that same commitment as we build our relationships with the people and businesses of Lancaster.”
The branch will be highly visible from Route 30, easily accessible from Oregon Pike, and situated across the street from the bustling Lancaster Shopping Center. This convenient location will serve our existing business and individual clients located in Lancaster County while providing a home to welcome many new relationships. The bank signed the Oregon Pike property lease on January 24, 2020, and renovations will begin during the second quarter.
A talented team of associates will support the office, including commercial, retail, and residential mortgage professionals dedicated to and engaged in the Lancaster community. The bank is forming the local team to be led by a senior market executive who will report directly to Draganosky. The retail branch will be supported by universal bankers who are professionals with the expertise to serve varied customer needs, including transactions, account openings, and loan processing. This approach provides the opportunity to build comprehensive customer relationships.
“We are incredibly excited to be joining the vibrant Lancaster community,” notes Founder and Chairman Michael Kochenour. “It is rich in history, arts, and culture while providing vast economic opportunities. Even though the names of our towns and cities throughout our markets are different, we all share remarkably similar values connected by a common love for the places we call home. This expansion is one more step towards our strategic vision to be the bank of choice for our target markets.”
