The Private Bank of Decatur opened Monday morning at offices in the middle of downtown Decatur -- the first floor of Decatur Town Center at 150 E. Ponce de Leon Ave.
The bank is a branch of the Private Bank of Buckhead. The president of the Private Bank of Decatur is Judy Turner, a longtime community banker in Decatur.
In a message from the bank, Turner said,
“Charter customers of the bank have been discovering that our name exemplifies our approach: We believe that all customers should benefit from the private banking approach other banks reserve for a certain few. We have team members with deep roots both personally and professionally in Decatur, and new team members who are joining us specifically to serve Decatur; many will be familiar to customers and are certainly familiar with the community.”
The bank plans a week-long, community drop-in celebration from 2-4 p.m. Nov. 13-16. Turner said, “We’ll be offering refreshments and, primarily, getting to say ‘hello’ to anyone who has not had a chance to stop by in the preceding weeks. One day wasn’t enough, so we’re saying ‘thank you’ for a whole week to Decatur for welcoming us.”
Turner was Decatur First Bank president until the state of Georgia closed it last year.
