Michigan Heritage Bancorp has announced that it will consolidate the accounts and business activities from its Livonia branch office with its nearby branch offices in Farmington Hills, and Novi, Michigan, US.
The branch management will move to nearby branches. Tricia Winborn will move to the Farmington Hills branch as branch manager, and Renee Barron will move to the Novi branch as a customer service representative.
The consolidation, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to be completed by July 18, 2008.
Raymond Biggs, president and CEO of Michigan Heritage, said: The basic reason for the branch consolidation is our inability to serve customers because of a lack of easy, convenient access to the Livonia branch.
Local zoning codes and prohibitively high construction costs prevent us from adding a drive-thru window or a drive-up A at this site. These two services are essential in today’s highly competitive banking environment and without them we are simply unable to properly serve our customers.
