MVB Celebrated Grand Opening in Charleston
MVB Financial Corp., celebrated the grand opening of its newest financial center location in downtown Charleston, West Virginia, with a ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration Thursday, March 26, 2015. The ceremony marked the official grand opening of the new financial center, the first for MVB Bank in the Kanawha Valley and the first Class A office construction in downtown Charleston in two decades.
MVB, a full service financial services organization based in Fairmont, West Virginia, now occupies 14,000 square-feet of the brand new building. Construction began with a celebratory groundbreaking ceremony in August 2013 and now, just over a year and a half later, the MVB building is open for business and boasts 30,000 square-feet of office space. This makes the MVB Charleston branch the company’s 10th banking location in West Virginia and is located at the corner of Margaret Street and the 400 block of Washington Street, East.
The new MVB Charleston branch features the technological conveniences of automated, interactive teller systems to increase client accessibility in both the branch lobby and the drive-thru. Traditional personal attention is still prominent, thanks to a staff of knowledgeable bankers, led by South Market President Jarrod Furgason.
The six million dollar, state-of-the-art structure is the second such branch model to be developed by MVB utilizing such technical conveniences. Additionally, it is the first bank in the state of West Virginia to employ the new interactive technology in both the branch lobby and drive thru lanes. Moreover, the Charleston location houses the company’s first call center of client service specialists.
The MVB footprint in West Virginia now encompasses 12 total locations, with bank locations in Fairmont, Bridgeport, Charleston, Clarksburg, White Hall, Morgantown, Charles Town and Martinsburg, and insurance offices in Morgantown, Wheeling and the new Charleston office. In 2014, MVB expanded its mortgage services from West Virginia and Northern Virginia markets, to the downtown Washington, D.C., North Carolina and South Carolina markets.
