METAIRIE, LA – Metairie Bank and Trust Co. announced its 70th anniversary, celebrating seven decades of serving the financial needs of people, businesses and communities throughout Southeast Louisiana.
Founded on Feb. 15, 1947, as Metairie Savings Bank and Trust Company, Metairie Bank has grown from a single location on Airline Drive to nine branches today serving both the South Shore and the Northshore.
Metairie Bank has been known as “The Locally-Owned Bank of Personal Service” since its founding, not only because of the personal service it offers its customers, but also for the “family” atmosphere that exists among its employees, bank reps said.
“We still offer that same neighborly, community bank feeling today as we did back in 1947, only now with the advanced technology and innovation that is so necessary in today’s competitive banking world,” said Ron E. Samford, Jr., Metairie Bank president and CEO.
Today, as the oldest, largest commercial bank headquartered in Jefferson Parish, with $370 million in assets, Metairie Bank has grown to meet the ever-increasing financial needs of its customers throughout the region, bank reps said. With the addition of MB Investment Services and MB Insurance Agency LLC the Bank now offers a full suite of financial services and products.
Bank reps said as Metairie Bank continues to move forward, its motto “We Connect with You” has taken on added meaning by putting technology at customers’ fingertips with online and mobile banking along with the same, longtime personal service that has always been synonymous with Metairie Bank.
