Furthering its aggressive plans to modernize and expand its branch network, KeyBank announced that it has completed extensive updating of 10 branches in King and Snohomish counties that began last year.
Commemorating the accomplishment, KeyBank offices held a customer appreciation event.
Key’s Seattle-Cascades District President Rick Wirthlin said, “Our clients endured some inconvenience during our remodeling efforts last year, and we want to thank them for their patience and loyalty to Key. We are also eager to show them what we’ve done to make their banking experience more convenient and comfortable.”
Lake Stevens was one of the branches that was modernized.
Wirthlin pointed to the bank’s expanding footprint in serving customers in the Greater Puget Sound area. Since Key’s growth strategy kicked off in 2009, Key has been working to open 20 new branches by 2012, including six this year.
More than half of Key’s branches in Greater Seattle will be remodeled by 2012.
Key’s expansion and revitalization program reflects the continued importance of bank branches to consumers and businesses who increasingly seek a mix of channels to conduct their banking business. Key has continued to invest in its 14-state branch network, over the past two years opening 77 new branches and renovating approximately 145 others nationally.
