West Bend-based Westbury Bank will spend about $1.5 million to renovate its branch at North Avenue and Calhoun Road in Brookfield.
The first and second floors will be updated with modern finishes, an ATM and a business lending hub for more efficient service. Th exterior ATM location will be reconfigured and the entryway to the building will be upgraded.
“We understand that customers want their service completed in a timely manner,” said Greg Remus, chief operating officer. “We will provide an environment where we can provide them with excellent service.”
Five to six new employees will be added as a result of the renovation.
Security and technology will be emphasized in the project, to meet customers’ interaction preferences. The completed branch will serve as a main hub for the Bank’s Commercial Lending & Wealth Management areas
“We are investing in the reconstruction to improve the customer experience for Brookfield and surrounding communities. We are a dynamic bank with which an individual or business customer can build a relationship,” Remus said.
The bank also plans to remodel its Germantown and Jackson branches in the next 12 to 18 months.
“This project has given us a template for what we need to do to help serve our neighborhoods,” Remus said. “Our Germantown and Jackson neighbors will see an improvement in their branches soon. Overall, we will continue to transform our business to help serve our customers.”
Westbury Bank has 12 branches in Milwaukee, Washington and Waukesha counties.
