Corporate Office In Louisville Says Change Coming To "Reinvigorate Its Roots"
Darren Doyle, story:
PBI Banks all over, including the Brownsville location on East Main Cross St. is changing its name to Limestone Bank, effective February 20, 2018, according to a statement released from the corporate office.
The statement also said that the new name, Limestone Bank, is derived from the rock found across much of Kentucky. Not only is limestone used in construction materials, but it’s also used in horse feed by many of the Bank’s equine clients as a strong source of supplemental calcium. Aside from these two connections, John Taylor, President & CEO of PBI Bank, suggests yet another.
“Many of our team members know first-hand the financial needs of businesses, farmers, and horse owners and breeders, and we’ve been able to build sturdy relationships with our clients because of that knowledge,” Taylor says. “Our focus on building strong relationships is central to who we are and who we strive to be every day.”
The statement also said that the bank has not been purchased, nor has the bank purchased another bank.
“We know that this change might raise a few questions, but we’re still the same bank,” Taylor says. “We’re simply changing our name and logo to reinvigorate our promise to help our clients build firm financial futures.”
PBI Bank customers will receive communications with further details about the name change in the coming weeks. Community members will also be invited to a special event occurring at their local branches on February 20, 2018, which is the date the name change will be effective.
