JPMorgan Chase announced the opening of its second consumer and community bank branch in the state of Missouri and first in the city of Brentwood, according to a press release.
“Brentwood is a vibrant, growing neighbor to St. Louis and we’re so proud to have this branch serve as a home for Chase customers in the area,” said Donny Carver, Market Director, St. Louis at Chase. “We look forward to building new relationships, help our customers during life’s most important moments, like opening their first savings account, buying their first home, planning for retirement, and more.”
The bank celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday, February 5 at its new location at 1 Brentwood Promenade Ct., which included Brentwood Mayor David Dimmitt, County Executive Dr. Sam Page, business leaders and area Chase executives.
“To have a new bank with this reputation in our community with this footprint, with this strategic plan is a big deal,” said St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page. “This is what we’re looking for, these are the partners that we want to welcome in St. Louis County…we love the service you provide and we look forward to working with you.”
Customers will discover a branch that looks and feels different from a “typical” bank – it combines a modern design, layout, and state-of-the-art banking technology, reflecting how customers engage with Chase today. Employees welcome customers in casual meeting spaces, emphasizing a more consultative approach, and offer self-service transaction areas including a digital access bar, smart ATMs, and free WiFi.
Chase’s expansion in Missouri adds retail and business banking to St. Louis where the firm serves more than 1.1 million consumers and over 36,900 business clients. The bank has been doing business in the area for more than 13 years, serving clients through its Commercial Bank and Private Bank. The Brentwood branch is the second to open in the state, following one at 101 N. Kirkwood Rd in Kirkwood in December.
Chase is hiring staff locally to support its new branches, including bankers, branch managers, business bankers and financial advisors, giving local customers access to its banking services while creating local job opportunities for residents.
In addition to expanding its branch network to the region, JPMorgan Chase will continue to work with local and community partners to help drive inclusive economic growth. In the last four years alone, the firm has invested more than $3 million in various local community non-profit organizations, including STL Youth Jobs, BioSTL, and a recent $200,000 investment with Justine PETERSEN, with an emphasis on impacting the community North of Delmar Boulevard, strengthening local minority-owned small businesses.
