First National Bank & Trust Co. recently celebrated the addition of the bank’s new FireLake location with an open house and Shawnee Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting. The new location located at 1545 South Gordon Cooper Drive across from FireLake Grocery officially opened Monday, September 24, 2012.

“We are very pleased to offer the communities we serve a new free-standing location with more space to accommodate our customers,” stated Larry Briggs, president and CEO of First National Bank & Trust Co. “We will also be enhancing the services we offer and integrating staff members from our MacArthur location to the FireLake branch in order to make this a smooth transition and ensure customer service at the highest level.”

The FireLake location includes a large customer service area inside the bank, three drive-thru lanes and an outdoor ATM. The FireLake bank lobby is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday while the drive-thru will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Jennifer Harrington serves as the Retail Branch Supervisor for both the MacArthur and FireLake locations. Harrington has been with FNB more than five years, serving as the bank’s compliance officer for the past three. Joining her is new accounts representative Linda Brown as well as head teller Michell Reeves, and tellers Christina Lowe and Joeleen Washburn.

“We hope the residents of Pottawatomie County will find our new location to be of even greater service,” added Briggs. “Our desire is to make banking with us even more convenient and to ensure those who choose FNB as their bank will have an experience that combines the best customer care with banking excellence.”
