Today, Home Bank joined the Capital Region in officially opening its 10th and 11th branches in South Louisiana and first in Baton Rouge. The new, full-service banking centers are located at 10563 South Glenstone Place (at Bluebonnet Boulevard, adjacent to the East Baton Rouge Public Library) and at 16969 Old Jefferson Highway (at Old Jefferson and Highland). Home Bank President and CEO John Bordelon joined shareholders, board members, staff and customers for the ribbon cutting ceremony and reception opening the branches in a day of events.
“We proudly open these facilities to expand our services to the Baton Rouge market,” says Bordelon. “We have a farther reach in South Louisiana with these branches but we remain committed to being a community bank while maintaining first-rate financial services.”
At a time when anxiety in the U.S. financial system is at an all-time high, Home Bank has maintained a consistent level of service with conservative banking philosophy and will expand that into the Capital Region.
