The opening today by Deputy Premier Terry Mackenroth of Mudjimba’s first bank at North Shore was a community affair, with local business and community leaders joining in the celebrations to welcome Bank of Queensland into the area.
Bank of Queensland Managing Director David Liddy said the Bank’s North Shore branch is a definite boost for the community, being the only bank in Mudjimba.
“Over the past two years we have significantly invested in the Sunshine Coast, opening five new branches which are located at Coolum, Currimundi, Mooloolaba, Maleny and Beerwah, as well as a Business Banking Centre at Maroochydore,” Mr Liddy said.
“We have a commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and will continue opening new branches to provide professional face-to-face customer service within their local area.
“The opening of our North Shore branch brings our branch network on the Sunshine Coast to 13 and our Queensland branch network to 121 with another nine branches due to open by December this year, including a branch at Tewantin later this month,” Mr Liddy said.
Bank of Queensland’s dedication to Sunshine Coast communities has been unmatched by the big banks which have instead closed 15 branches in the region over the past six years, despite high growth and development.
North Shore owner-managers and Sunshine Coast locals, Darren Spence and Joanne Greensill, bring 20 years combined banking experience to the community and are looking forward to providing their customers with excellent customer service.
“I think locals will be delighted with our customer service team. We are dedicated to making a difference in the way people do banking, offering friendly, personalised and professional service,” Darren said.
“We are even open on Saturday mornings for extra customer convenience. If people can’t make it to the branch to see us, Joanne and I are just as happy to visit their workplace or residence – it’s all about convenience for the customer,” Darren said.
