Univest Bank and Trust Co. celebrated the opening of its fifth retail financial center in Lancaster County, located at 1 Heritage Drive in Gordonville, with a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony. The approximately 2,600 square-foot office features Univest’s updated branch design focused on an improved customer experience delivered by a personal banking team. The staff, led by manager, Eileen Henry, has extensive experience providing financial services in the Lancaster market.
“Opening a financial center in Intercourse has been a priority since we first entered Lancaster County,” said Jeff Schweitzer, president and CEO, Univest Corporation. “We feel communities like Intercourse represent the heart of Main Street America, a niche that Univest has served well for 142 years.”
Univest has quickly planted roots in Lancaster by investing in multiple financial centers since entering the market in May 2016. Univest opened its first financial center in Willow Street in summer 2016 and opened locations in Strasburg, Brownstown, and Georgetown last year. In addition, Univest has a regional office in the Greenfield Corporate Center, which opened in spring 2016. Univest employs 42 people in Lancaster County, led by Thomas Jordan, IV, market president. In addition to consumer banking, Univest specializes in agricultural and commercial lending.
“We have received a warm welcome from local businesses and consumers leading us to accelerate our expansion plans,” said Jordan. “This fifth financial center, with a local staff who live and work right here in Lancaster County, will allow us to bring Univest’s comprehensive financial solutions, exceptional service and local approach to even more residents, businesses and nonprofit organizations.”
Since its founding in 1876 in Souderton, Montgomery County, Univest has expanded its service area and offerings. In addition to traditional banking, Univest currently provides a full range of financial solutions including insurance, investments, mortgage banking, wealth management and equipment financing. It has offices in Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, Philadelphia and Lancaster counties as well as the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, and Cape May County in New Jersey.
