Bank of Queensland has continued to show its support for Pine Rivers Shire with the opening today of Warner’s first and only bank, just months after the opening of a new branch at North Lakes.
Member for Dickson Peter Dutton officially opened the new Warner branch at a community celebration, where he congratulated Bank of Queensland for recognising the need for a community-focused bank in the area.
“Banks are the cornerstone of communities and are important to an area’s social and economic well-being. I believe the much-anticipated banking facilities in Warner will be a welcome boost to the suburb,” Mr Dutton said.
“It’s fantastic to see a Bank showing genuine commitment to communities and bringing traditional face-to-face banking into the area. I’m sure Bank of Queensland will get the support it deserves from the community,” he said.
Bank of Queensland Managing Director David Liddy reinforced Mr Dutton’s comments and said the new branch was a definite boost for Warner, being the only bank in the suburb.
“Over the past two years we have significantly invested in communities throughout Queensland with Warner joining a growing list of 34 communities which have benefited from a Bank of Queensland branch in just under two years,” Mr Liddy said.
“We have a commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and will continue opening new branches to provide professional person2person™ customer service within their local area,” he said.
The branch’s owner-managers, Pine Rivers locals Dian Duncan, Rick Webb and Greg Ellis, bring more than 70 years’ banking experience to the community and are committed to providing exceptional service to every customer.
Ms Duncan said they had experience in all facets of personal and business banking and were looking forward to meeting the community and providing for their banking needs.
“We invite everyone to come into the branch and experience Bank of Queensland’s top-quality, person2person™ customer service. If people can’t make it to the branch to see us we are just as happy to visit their workplace or residence,” Ms Duncan said.
