PriorityOne celebrates Grand Opening of two new branches!

PriorityOne Bank, headquartered in Magee, Mississippi, held the Grand Openings for its two newest branches in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Collins, Mississippi. Community leaders, dignitaries and customers at both events applauded the new open concept design as providing a new and unique experience that is found nowhere else in the Hattiesburg and Collins markets.

The ”Bellevue” Branch in Hattiesburg is conveniently located at the intersection of Highway 98 and Highway 589 and is PriorityOne’s second location in Hattiesburg. The “Civic Center” Branch in Collins is conveniently located on the North bound service road of Highway 49, right next to the Collins Civic Center. This is PriorityOne’s second location in Collins as well and provides an additional, convenient, full service banking alternative for its customers in Covington County. Both branches feature dialog towers (kiosks/pods), waiting area with refreshment bar and flat screen monitors, a technology bar, 3 drive-up lanes and a dedicated ATM lane with night depository.

PriorityOne relied on the design-build expertise of LEVEL5 to create the bank’s prototype branch of the future for these two locations. Rick Ivey, Regional Director for LEVEL5, stated “The open concept creates a branch environment that facilitates a greater level of personal customer service. The personal bankers are able to engage with customers without the barrier of a teller line, but still have space where they can have private conversations when the need arises.”

Robbie Barnes, President and CEO of PriorityOne Bank said, “These new prototype branches offer a much more customer-centric environment utilizing dialog towers, which allow for more personalized interaction with the customer, as well as personal bankers who can help customers through every aspect of the banking process. This is a design that many banks are beginning to adopt and it provides a much more open feel for the customer as well as enhancing the overall customer experience.”

John Mark Williams, Chief Operating Officer, stated “We have been very pleased with the work LEVEL5 did in the design-build of these branches. The open environment, technology enhancements, and the ability of our personal bankers to engage customers on a more personal level has enhanced the level of service we provide to our customers and these communities. Our customer’s response to the new look and feel has been extremely positive.”
