Bank opens market HQ
After nearly six months of construction, a bank has opened its new headquarters for a lakeshore market.
Dallas-based Comerica Bank said this week that it has opened a headquarters for the metro Muskegon market in Norton Shores, at 875 W. Norton Ave., that will double as a branch.
The market headquarters will serve various communities: Muskegon, Muskegon Heights, Coopersville, Grand Haven, Holland, Marne and Montague.
“Commitment” to market
Comerica’s Norton Shores branch is located within a newly constructed 7,000-square-foot building, which also includes adjacent office space for business banking and wealth-management teams.
The branch will be managed by Brian Kammerzell, assistant VP, and staffed by about 15 employees who were relocated from Comerica's former location nearby.
Bryce Tallant, Muskegon region president for Comerica Bank, said the bank looks forward to serving customers in the new space, which reflects the latest customer service technology.
“The investment in our new banking center and office space reflects Comerica’s continuing commitment to the Muskegon community and the state of Michigan,” Tallant said.
The branch features three customer service stations, a drive-up ATM, night depository, safe-deposit boxes and two drive-up lanes using a video teller system.
Construction on the nearly $1.56-million project began June 18, 2015 with Clifford Buck Construction serving as the contractor, according to a June 2015 report by the city of Norton Shores Fire Department Building Division.
Comerica Bank also has locations in the Muskegon area at East Apple Avenue in Muskegon, Center Street in North Muskegon and Sanford in Muskegon Heights.
Comerica was founded in 1849 in Detroit and relocated its headquarters to Dallas in 2007.
The bank has total assets of $71 billion and more than 470 banks throughout the U.S., as of Sept. 30, 2015.
In 2014, Comerica said its employees supported Michigan communities with financial contributions and volunteer labor hours, reaching an overall impact of nearly $4 million.
