PNC Financial Services Group Inc., the Pittsburgh-based corporate parent of PNC Bank, has announced that its conversion of former National City Bank branches in Wisconsin will be completed by June, 2010.
Last week, PNC finished converting 240 branches in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida. The former National City branches opened as PNC Bank branches last Monday.
“We wanted a seamless transition for our customers and I believe we have achieved that goal based on the teamwork of our employees and the investments being made,” said Thomas K. Whitford, the bank’s vice chairman and leader of the conversion effort. “The tremendous leverage we expected from this transition is beginning to benefit customers and have a positive effect on our performance.”
National City branches in Wisconsin will be converted at the same time as branches in Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. PNC will convert branches in Kentucky, northern southeastern Indiana and southern Ohio in February, 2010. National City branches in northern Ohio and Michigan will be converted in April.
