Traditions Bank held a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 officially celebrating the opening of Traditions Center — the bank’s new administrative headquarters located at 226 Pauline Drive in York Township. The acquisition of the 28,000 square foot building — 18,000 of which has been developed to date — is a result of the bank’s continued growth and dedication to the York community.
“This investment shows our commitment to staying personally connected with our customers and local community,” said Michael Kochenour, Chairman, President and CEO. “Traditions Bank is focusing on making an even greater investment and commitment right here in our hometown with responsible, controlled growth.”
The new Traditions Center is currently staffed with 46 Associates working in Commercial Banking, Mortgage Services, Deposit and Loan Operations, and Executive Administration. Formerly, these employees shared the building with the bank’s flagship branch at 235 St. Charles Way. The St. Charles Way branch will remain at its current location, along with the Retail Administration and Marketing staff. The bank’s growing customer base prompted the need for more relationship and support staff, and more office space.
“From Day One, we dreamed of building our home base in our own hometown,” said Kochenour. “It’s a thrill to see it become a reality!”
