“National Penn is committed to our vision of being the most highly regarded financial institution in the markets we serve,” said National Penn President and CEO Scott V. Fainor. “As a result, we have developed a forward-thinking relocation plan that will improve employee collaboration, enhance customer service and maintain our strong focus on growing the National Penn franchise. This strategy will increase efficiencies and allow us to continue our focus on enhancing shareholder value as we solidify our National Penn brand.”

The KNBT and Nittany Bank divisions will be renamed “National Penn” by spring 2013.

According to the corporate relocation plan, which calls for no reduction in jobs, the following moves will be completed by fall 2014:

  • National Penn corporate headquarters will relocate to Seventh and Hamilton Streets in downtown Allentown and approximately 275 employees will relocate to the new Two City Center building, which is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2014.
  • National Penn will continue to maintain approximately 150 employees in the company’s current buildings in Boyertown.
  • National Penn will relocate approximately 125 employees to a new building on Broadcasting Road in Spring Township, Berks County, which will be completed in the fall of 2013, known as the Reading Area Business Center.

“The economic benefits of relocating to Allentown’s Neighborhood Improvement Zone combined with the strategy of operating under a single name allows National Penn to be well positioned for future growth while maintaining our focus on expense management,” said Michael J. Hughes, National Penn’s group executive vice president and chief financial officer.
