Louisiana-based Community Trust Bank will break ground on banking centers in Flowood and Madison in late May, with openings for each scheduled for fourth quarter.
Community Trust, which has 30 locations in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi, will finish work on its new Ridgeland banking center by the end of summer, the bank says.
The Flowood Banking Center groundbreaking will take place at 10 a.m. on May 22 at 203 Promenade Blvd. Joining representatives of Community Trust Bank will be The Chamber of Flowood President Keith Clair, Rankin County Chamber of Commerce President Debbie Brinson, and Flowood Mayor Gary Rhoads.
The Madison Banking Center groundbreaking will be at 2 p.m. on May 24 at 1910 Main St. City Chamber of Commerce President Jane Bell, Madison County Chamber of Commerce President Sharon Moulder, and Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler will join Community Trust Bank for the ceremony.
“Groundbreakings are representative of Community Trust Bank’s growth in Mississippi and our commitment to our customers and communities,” said Larry Ratzlaff, regional president for the $2.5 billion Community Trust Bank. “Growth is a direct result of customer satisfaction, which is always our number one goal.”
Moving to the Flowood area and establishing a presence on Main Street in Madison demonstrates the bank’s commitment to executing its planned development in central Mississippi, Ratzlaff said.
Community Trust Bank will open the Highland Colony Financial Center in Ridgeland later this summer. The financial center at 1063 Highland Colony Parkway broke ground in October 2011. The two-story building will feature state-of-the-art technology and include multiple drive-thru lanes. Dialogue towers will also be featured in the lobby, which offer a more customer friendly environment for conducting transactions.
