NEWTON CENTRE, Mass., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- First Commons Bank, N.A., has filed an application with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to open a new, fully staffed branch office in the town of Wellesley, Mass. The bank began operations on July 22, 2009, to serve businesses and individuals in Newton, Wellesley, Waltham, and eastern Massachusetts. First Commons Bank has over $110 million in assets and has surpassed the asset size of more than 2,900 or 38% of all FDIC-Insured banks in the U.S. — after just six quarters of operations. The bank is headquartered in Newton Centre, Massachusetts.
Tony Nuzzo, the bank's Chairman, President, and CEO, said, "Our new branch, pending OCC and town approvals, will be located at 161 Linden Street in Linden Square, Wellesley, and is targeted to open around midyear 2011. We also plan to build additional administrative offices adjacent to the proposed Wellesley branch to accommodate the new space requirements that have resulted from our growth."
Nuzzo, who lives in Wellesley, said, "The new Linden Square branch will allow First Commons Bank to better serve Wellesley residents." He said, "The bank will build upon its founding principles of resolving major points of consumer dissatisfaction with the big banks by providing superior personal service, logical and quick decisions with access to decision makers, and very few fees."
