Individually, First Commonwealth had more than 21,000 customers deposit $51.3 million over that same time period, with 387 new accounts being opened.
“The Consumer Federation of America is a leader in all facets of financial education,” remarked Jane Grebenc, President of First Commonwealth Bank. “Our mission is to improve the financial lives of our neighbors and their businesses, so receiving their recognition of our commitment to education is tremendous. Through education, we believe that our consumers will be better stewards of their finances,” Grebenc added.
