Warner Robins, GA (March 1, 2022) – Planters First Bank’s Board of Directors, officers, and staff are excited to announce the groundbreaking of an all-new, state-of-the-art branch office in Warner Robins, Georgia, which occurred on February 28, 2022. Located on a one-acre lot off Houston Lake Road, the new 3,000 square foot branch office makes Planters First Bank’s services more accessible to the marketplace while reflecting and continuing the bank’s commitment to customer service and success.
“I’m proud and excited to help bring a brand new, state-of-the-art banking center to Warner Robins while celebrating 126 years of Planters First Bank history in Middle Georgia,” says Cole Woodroof, Planters First Bank’s Executive Vice President. “Planters First Bank is honored to have been a part of the Warner Robins community since 2016, and we are very excited to see this new facility come to fruition so that we can continue to better serve our customers and community.” Without strong support from the Warner Robins community and outstanding leadership from our Regional President, Clay Corbitt and Market President, Kristina Gibbs, this would still be a dream.
Designed with Planters First Bank’s community-driven approach to banking in mind, the new facility will utilize dialogue banking, an open-concept method of banking using teller pods and cross-trained branch staff, to enhance efficiency and create a more friendly, practical experience for customers.
“We are eager to strengthen our existing relationships and provide individuals, families, and business owners with our special brand of banking services,” Woodroof says.
When asked about the new branch location coming to Warner Robins, Clay Corbitt, SVP, Regional President of Houston County and Peach County, had the following to say, “I’m excited to have a prominent location and a new innovative banking center, and I’m reminded that it’s our amazing customers in Houston County that got us to this point. We will offer the same great service that our Warner Robins customers have come to expect. This building is for the customers that have partnered with us to build something that we can all be proud of and also for those that are to come. We strive to be the best bank in Middle Georgia, and it’s our honor that businesses and families trust us with their finances. This is their branch and we look forward to serving them there!
Planters First Bank partnered with Eclipse Brand Builders out of Johns Creek, Georgia, to manage the design and construction of the new Warner Robins branch. Because of Eclipse’s turnkey services and collaborative approach, the new branch office will align with Planters First Bank’s core values, resulting in a customer-first branch.
