Wachovia Bank, N.A. has completed installation of automated teller machines in 29 locations in the Atlantic Coast counties of Palm Beach, Brevard, Broward and Martin in Florida. Another eight locations are slated to be added later this summer.
“The recent ATM installations bring added convenience to former 1st United and American Bank customers – as well as other Wachovia customers traveling in Florida,” said Warren S. Orlando, Wachovia’s chief executive for Florida banking. Non-customers whose banks are members of the Honor, Plus and Cirrus networks as well as American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa cardholders can use the ATMs for a usage fee per transaction.
1st United Bank last week merged with Wachovia Bank, N.A. Earlier this year, American Bank of Hollywood merged with 1st United. The new ATMs are located in 20 cities in the four-county region that has been served by the two banks.
“Wachovia’s Florida ATM program is part of our commitment to customer service,” said Rebekah Lowe, regional executive. “We are excited about extending 24-hour ATM service to branches previously without that capability.”
Wachovia signs will be installed at all former 1st United and American Bank locations during the weekend of Aug. 28, when existing operations will be integrated with Wachovia.
Wachovia Bank, N.A. is the principal banking subsidiary of Wachovia Corporation and has more than 750 offices and 1,300 ATMs in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. As of March 31, Wachovia Corporation ranked 18th among U.S. bank holding companies with assets in excess of $65 billion.Details
