Peoples Security Bank & Trust Opens Blue Mountain Business Lending Center in Schuylkill County

 

(March 5, 2019) — Peoples Security Bank & Trust has opened a new business center in Orwigsburg to serve customers in Schuylkill County, as well as surrounding Carbon and Berks counties.

The 1,750-square-foot Blue Mountain Business Lending Center — located at 705 W. Market Street, Suite 8 — offers a range of financial products and services including business loans, personal mortgages and cash management services.

“In a time when larger, national banks are pulling out of this area, Peoples Security Bank & Trust believes there are opportunities for growth, and we are committed to providing competitive products and services to meet the financial needs in Schuylkill County,” said Executive Vice President Neal Koplin. “Commencing in 2015, our bank successfully built a presence in the Lehigh Valley that today includes three locations and more than $400 million in loans by exceeding customer expectations and being equipped with the right tools and support to succeed.”

Following a soft launch in December 2018, the new location is open and serving the business and professional community in Schuylkill County. Denise Ressler, Peoples Security Bank & Trust Senior Vice President, has more than 25 years of experience in the Schuylkill business community and will oversee the Blue Mountain Business Lending Center’s operations.

“While we’re keeping an eye to the future and expanding our offerings, our priority during this inaugural year is to partner with small and mid-sized businesses,” Ressler said. “Born and raised in Schuylkill County, I know the potential for growth in our area. It’s truly an honor to be able to serve the region I call home, partner with growing businesses to assist in their success and contribute to the overall economic vitality of the region.”
