Rockville Bank Announces Plans To Open A Full-Service Banking Branch In Hamden

Stocks in this article: RCKB

GLASTONBURY, Conn., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- William H.W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rockville Bank (the "Bank") and Rockville Financial, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:RCKB), today announced that the Bank filed an application with the Connecticut Department of Banking and the FDIC and received their regulatory approval to open a new retail banking branch at 2290 Whitney Avenue in Hamden, Conn.

This branch will be Rockville Bank's first retail banking location in New Haven County.

The Bank's application calls for establishing a nearly 2,000 square foot, full-service branch that would provide retail and commercial deposit and loan products, investment advisory services, residential mortgage loan origination, small business products, night deposit services, drive-thru teller and ATM.

Rockville Bank opened a loan production office in Hamden at 2319 Whitney Avenue in July 2011. Over the past two years, the commercial banking executives and residential mortgage loan officers at this location have provided significant lending to individuals and businesses from the greater New Haven area. A retail banking presence by Rockville Bank in Hamden will help support this successful and growing loan production office while providing new and existing customers with convenient access to full-service banking.

"Rockville Bank has achieved great success over the past two years when it comes to commercial and residential mortgage lending in Hamden and New Haven County. Our strategy to expand into new markets west of the Connecticut River and down I-91 South to New Haven is a sound business decision as we continue to witness a demand for personal and business banking services in the area," said Crawford. "A conveniently-located Rockville Bank branch in Hamden will not only provide support to our customer relationship managers there but will offer customers in the area access to a full-service Rockville Bank branch."
