Community Trust Bank Opens Seventh Metroplex Location

ALLEN, TX – May 7, 2013

Community Trust Bank is celebrating another opening in north central Texas. The Allen Banking Center, located at 384 East Stacy Road, opened its doors today. This location marks the seventh banking center to open in the area, further increasing the bank’s footprint across the Dallas-Fort Worth market.

The full service, state-of-the-art banking center features “dialogue towers” in the lobby, which serve as a new, innovative, customer-focused retail delivery platform. A customer is greeted by a personal banker immediately upon entering the center, and is then escorted to a dialogue tower, instead of the traditional teller window. Here, the customer and personal banker are able to work side-by-side and complete a wide range of transactions, from a simple deposit, to opening a new account, to completing a loan application.

“We have been planning the Allen Banking Center for some time. It’s the logical compliment to our other north Dallas locations and provides a more complete network of locations for our growing Community Trust Bank customer base across the region,” said Van Pardue, Texas President, Community Trust Bank. “With the dialogue towers serving as the heart of our unique retail platform, we look forward to providing our customers with an unparalleled, one-stop, one-person transaction experience.”

Community Trust Bank also has full service centers in Frisco, Plano, Dallas, and Fort Worth, and has recently announced entry into Houston.
