FOR RELEASE: November 17, 2014
DANVILLE, VA – American National Bank and Trust Company (American National) has opened a new location in Mebane, N.C., at 1008 Mebane Oaks Road, and has taken the opportunity to enhance how customers will experience and interact with the bank while there.
“This is an interesting and exciting time in banking,” said Jeffrey V. Haley, president and chief executive officer of American National. “As customer needs change and as people continue to embrace technology, we are changing, too. While we will uphold our tradition of exceptional customer service, what that looks like isn’t necessarily how it looked even five years ago. This new location gives us the opportunity to offer outstanding service supported by technology, engaging customers in ways that work for them today.”
The new banking office is modern in design, with an open floor plan. A help desk bar equipped with iPads allows customers to test-drive electronic services and to seek assistance from a banker, if needed. A video conference room enables customers to conveniently “meet” other business line professionals who may not be physically located in Mebane.
Branch Manager Kristin Page, Relationship Manager David Wyatt and the rest of the Mebane team know their roles are a bit different in the new office. According to Kristin, “For a long time, people have talked about banks in terms of ‘high tech’ or ‘high touch,’ implying you can have one or the other. This office turns that thinking upside down, making having to choose between the two a thing of the past. We offer the highest level of customer service and engage customers with technology that works for them as they bank from their computers, tablets and phones.”
The new banking office is located by Lowes Foods in Mebane Oaks Village shopping center across from Tanger Outlets. It is just down the street from the bank’s previous Mebane location and will serve as a pilot approach for a new, unique banking experience.
