Atlanta, GA – January 31, 2023 - United Community Bank is strengthening its Metro Atlanta presence by adding its Buckhead branch located at 4600 Roswell Rd. The branch will be open on February 1 and will feature Atlanta’s first Interactive Teller Machine (ITM).
The Buckhead branch is conveniently located inside the perimeter with easy access for intown and surrounding customers to conveniently utilize United’s services and personalized banking solutions. United Community Bank now has 30 branches in strategic locations across the Metro Atlanta market.
“We are excited to open our first full-service retail branch inside the perimeter,” said Doug Higgins, President of United Community Bank for Metro Atlanta. “Our Atlanta team has done an incredible job growing our operations in the area and we are privileged to expand in the Metro Atlanta market to meet our customers’ needs.”
The new Buckhead branch will not feature a drive-thru but will house an ITM that offers customers enhanced technology with a personalized touch by providing access to speak with a live banker. Customers can make many of the same transactions as they would inside a branch including deposits, withdrawals and transfers. The ITM extends branch hours until 6 p.m. on weekdays and until noon on Saturdays, providing flexibility beyond normal banking hours.
“Our continued growth in the Metro Atlanta area is part of our commitment to serving this community and the customers we love,” said Sharon Thompson, East Atlanta Regional President. “And we’re not done growing. We will be announcing a second in-town location coming soon!”
