BankEast opens second Blount branch

BankEast recently opened its second branch in Maryville at 826 E. Lamar Alexander Parkway.

"We are excited about our opportunities in Blount County," said Bob Sullivan, regional president for Blount County. "This new branch will allow us to reach more people and provide additional convenience for those who need to visit their nearest BankEast location."

Serving customers at the College Branch will be Richard Borden, vice president and branch manager; Carey Best, customer service representative; Rhonda Chatham, head teller; and Annette Holliman, teller. Borden has served as the branch manager for the Maryville main office since it opened in 2004.

"Our new location will really allow us to serve more of the community," said Richard Borden, vice president and branch manager. "We want our current customers to come by and see our new branch, and we welcome others from the community to stop by to experience ‘Banking The Way It Should Be.’ "

The two-story, traditional brick building contains 4,664 square feet and includes a drive-thru window, ATM and night depository. It is adjacent to the Blount County Justice Center.

The new office will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday.
In addition, Borden pointed out the "24-hour" banking options at BankEast.

"We know it’s important to be convenient for our customers," commented Borden. "That’s why we provide 24-hour banking capability through a variety of methods for our business and consumer customers."

BankEast offers free online banking and bill payment for both consumers and businesses, as well as 24-hour telephone banking. In addition, a full complement of sophisticated cash management products are also available for business customers.

BankEast currently serves customers through eight branches in Blount, Knox, Sevier and Jackson counties. Mortgage loans are offered through Curtis Mortgage Company, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of BankEast Corporation.
