WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA celebrated the grand opening of its new local commercial banking headquarters office space last night, on the heels of a global rebrand.
The new office space, located at 525 Okeechobee Blvd., Suite 1680, will house all local employees. Multiple previous locations have been used for the bank's area team, with the most recent move signifying the bank's firm commitment to the area.
"We're a small, but growing and dedicated team in West Palm Beach," said BBVA Compass Palm Beach and Broward Counties Market President Carlos Alvarez. "Our newest office is a testament to our future's longevity here. We're solidifying our roots and showing the region that we're here to help our commercial clients take control of their financial lives and reach their business goals. We're excited to show the area what we're capable of achieving for our corner of Florida."
The new office space, located inside of the CityPlace Tower, has approximately 3,150 square feet for client interaction, meeting space and employee collaboration.
The bank's West Palm Beach team has been operating out of the office since February 1.
The grand opening also comes exactly a week after BBVA's global rebrand that was introduced on April 24. The bank unveiled another critical step on its path to operating as a truly global digital company with the launch of a unified brand and new logo.
The change underscored BBVA's aim to deploy a unique value proposition and consistent experience for customers and clients in all its markets, similar to what customers have come to expect from digital companies across the world.
