Republic Bank, which was named America’s number one Bank for Service in 2020, welcomed customers to its new store in Deptford on Saturday, June 12 with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. Brian Mickle, who brings more than 15 years of bank management experience to Republic, will serve as Deptford Store Manager. Leandra Acetti, who has played an important role in commercial loan and deposit growth for Republic throughout New Jersey since 2017, will now spearhead local growth as the Regional Vice President for the Gloucester-Atlantic market.
“We are excited to welcome FANS to our new Deptford store,” said Vernon W. Hill, II, CEO, and Chairman of Republic Bank. “As America’s number one bank for service, we believe the in-store experience still matters. We are continuing to strategically build new bank locations in highly trafficked areas to best serve our customers across the region.”
In honor of its new store in Deptford, Republic Bank partnered with the Deptford Fire Department and Deptford Township Police Department to show its support to the local community and the organizations that keep it safe. The bank presented the Deptford Fire Department and the Deptford Township Police Department with a donation at the grand opening.
