First Commonwealth Bank Reopens Green Tree Branch, Less Than Ten Months After Fire
Indiana, PA (June 11) – On Monday, June 10, First Commonwealth Bank held a ribbon cutting on their newly rebuilt Green Tree Branch, 339 Mansfield Avenue, Pittsburgh. The event was attended by First Commonwealth Bank CEO, Mike Price, VP of Real Estate & Facilities, Jesse Brocious, SVP & Allegheny South Market Leader Gina Homa, Green Tree Branch Manager, Anthony Romantino and several other First Commonwealth employees. They were joined by, Green Tree Mayor, Edward Schenck, Council President, Mark Sampogna, Manager, David Montz and several other local officials. Additionally, several First Commonwealth Bank customers, representatives from General Contractor PW Campbell, and the Green Tree Fire Department were on hand as well.
The ribbon cutting came less than ten months after the August 11, 2018 vehicle fire that spread to and consumed the entire structure. The new branch is designed with features to better serve customers, and the Green Tree community.
After the ribbon cutting, CEO Mike Price offered, “We are very excited to be rejoining our friends and neighbors here in the community with the reopening of our Green Tree branch, less than ten months after the fire that caused us to completely rebuild from the foundation up. First Commonwealth Bank owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to our first responders who answered the call that day, our employees who have been amazingly flexible over this time frame, and maybe most importantly, our customers who have been so supportive and understanding. We invite everyone in the area to join us over the next several weeks as we celebrate our new branch and its redesign to better serve customers, and the Green Tree community.”
