Cadence Bank celebrated opening its newest branch on Dennison Avenue in Southwest Birmingham, in the historic African American communities of Titusville and West End in early September.
The Heritage Town Center branch will support the needs of the underserved in these low- to moderate-income communities. The full-service branch will offer both residential and commercial loans, as well as retail and business banking services.
Steve Welling, executive vice president and director of retail banking for Cadence Bank, said, “It took nearly 18 months to identify a site at the intersection of these two historically significant communities, and we are excited about the growth potential we can bring to individuals, families and small businesses that call these neighborhoods home. We have been longtime supporters of economic development and believe that helping people achieve financial independence is key to community revitalization.”
Helping to cut the ribbon on the branch opening were Birmingham City Council Member Crystal Smitherman, Titusville Development Corp. Executive Director Ronald Bayles and Cadence Bank’s Eula Jackson, Steve Welling and Mark Washington.
The Heritage Town Center branch also features a community room where complimentary financial education classes and workshops will be held on topics like first-time homebuying, credit, budgeting, investments and more. In addition, it will be open for community and neighborhood engagement activities.
The branch is the latest branch opening for Cadence Bank, a regional banking franchise with 99 branches in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. It had $18.8 billion in assets as of March 31, 2021.
