WESTPORT, Conn. — To celebrate the opening of its newest branch in Westport, Stamford-based Patriot Bank presented a $1,000 check to the Westport Sunrise Rotary 21st Century Foundation.
The new bank branch, located at 415 East Post Road in the Compo Shopping Plaza, will also offer one of Patriot’s advanced Live Banker ATM machines. That will extend the banking day for customers beyond traditional hours by allowing live interaction with local Patriot bankers via video terminals.
Users of the Live Banker ATMs can open new accounts, apply for loans and banking products, make payments, get financial product advice, and more.
Patriot is the only community bank in the region to offer this advanced technology.
“Westport is a growing market for Patriot Bank,” said Patriot Bank President Richard Muskus Jr. “What’s more the addition of Patriot’s Live Banker ATM technology represents a major shift for the future of personal and commercial banking. It bridges the gap between advanced technology and a personalized banking experience while significantly extending hours of service and convenience for all customers.”
“I’m happy that Patriot decided to stay in Westport,” said Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe.
Officials at the branch dedication also had the opportunity to interact with the new technology, and speak to a Live Banker on the screen.
For 20 years, Patriot has maintained a local branch directly across the Post Road. “We are excited for this new location in Westport,” said Patriot Bank Westport Branch Manager and Vice President Frankie Lee Smith. “We have an incredible banking team serving the many Westport area consumers, businesses, and non-profits who bank with us.”
“This is a beautiful new branch and the new Interactive Teller is an exciting addition,” said President of Westport Sunrise Rotary Ron Holtz.
“I’m very pleased to see Patriot bank continuing its presence and support of Westport,” said President of Westport Chamber of Commerce Matthew Mandell.
Patriot Bank is headquartered in Stamford and operates 10 branches: in Bedford and Scarsdale, N.Y.; and Darien, Fairfield, Greenwich, Milford, Norwalk, Stamford, Trumbull at Westfield Mall, and Westport.
