MADISON — Emma Byrnside, Executive Vice President & Boone Division President, has announced an Open House and special auto loan promotion for the bank’s recently remodeled West Hamlin office. The event will be held on Wednesday, March 20, between 9:00 a. m. and 3:00 p.m. The bank will also offer a special new car financing rate for that day only. Branch Manager Kevin Ramey said, “We’re excited for everyone to see our expanded office which will better serve the banking needs of Lincoln County residents and we hope many will join us for refreshments and give-a-ways on March 20.”
The project, which doubled the bank’s space, was a collaborative effort by the Lincoln County Economic Development Authority (EDA), The Stowers Group and Premier Bank. Lincoln EDA President, Larry Stutler initiated discussions with Premier Bank Branch Manager, Kevin Ramey last year about expanding to the space the EDA formerly occupied. The idea was then presented to building owner, Lyle Stowers, who immediately embraced the proposal.
The renovations were completed in January and enlarged the lobby service area and added much-needed office space. Also, the renovations resulted in safer access for customers and offering greatly improved visibility to Route 10 traffic.
Premier Bank is a $750 million West Virginia chartered bank with 13 locations in West Virginia, 6 locations in the DC Metro area and 2 locations in Virginia. Premier Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Premier Financial Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ/GM: PFBI), a $1.2 billion dollar, Huntington, WV-based bank holding company.
