Charter Bank Ribbon Cutting in Ocean Springs
The weather wasn’t great today but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Charter Bank as they celebrated the opening of their fourth location on the Coast.
This new branch is located at the corner of Bienville and Hanley Road in Ocean Springs. Elected officials, community and business leaders filled the lobby of the new bank for a ribbon cutting today.
Bank leaders tell News 25 they are happy to create more jobs and to add another banking option in Ocean Springs. CEO Greg Cronin says he hopes the investment provides an economic boost for the city. “Ocean Springs is doing very well. We’re happy to invest in Ocean Springs. Ocean Springs was just named one of the top 20 cities to live in, or towns to live in, in the Southeast. I think that speaks to the vivaciousness of Ocean Springs and everything that’s going on. Our hope is that we’ll be part of it and by opening the branch today and this expansion that we’ll be giving back a little bit to Ocean Springs.”
Charter Bank also gave back to the community during thecelebration. They awarded a $10,000 check to the Bacot-McCarty Foundation.
