BankNewport to Open Branch at Chapel View

BankNewport  President and CEO, Sandra J. Pattie announced plans to open a new branch office in the first floor space of Building 4000 at Chapel View in Cranston in September 2016.

BankNewport has signed a 15-year lease for the new 2,700-square-foot branch at Chapel View. Located at the main entrance off of Sockanosset Cross Road and adjacent to Panera Bread, the branch will offer easy access for customers.

“BankNewport’s new Chapel View branch will provide added convenience to area customers, residents, commuters, and businesses to access our full range of financial services, delivered by a local team that they know and trust,” stated Sandra Pattie.

The new branch will operate with the universal banker model.  Bankers will be versed to assist customers with teller transactions, product sales, and servicing. Technology will be utilized to streamline transactions and enhance the customer experience in order to allow universal bankers, mortgage loan officers, and business development officers to focus on having conversations with customers to address individual needs and provide tailored solutions.  Easy to navigate electronic tools will allow customers the ability to set up online and mobile banking accounts at the branch.  The branch will also have an image-enabled ATM in the lobby and an outside drive-up ATM.

Pattie added, “There’s genuine excitement about our new branch at Chapel View and we look forward to continuing our role as a true community partner and neighbor to the residents and businesses of Cranston and surrounding communities.”
