Hagerstown, MD – First United Bank & Trust has announced the opening of a new, and much anticipated, community office at 19405 Emerald Square, Suite 1000 in Hagerstown, Maryland.

First United Bank & Trust has been a member of the Washington County community for over 20 years with offices on Edgewood Drive, Wesel Boulevard as well as in Smithsburg.  The dynamic growth and development in the Hagerstown area has led to the opening of this new community office which is housed in the recently constructed, Emerald Square building. The new modern office features a beautiful, bright and open design.

“We are so pleased to be opening our newest branch in Hagerstown”, said Carissa L. Rodeheaver, CEO, Chairman of the Board and President of First United Bank & Trust. “Emerald Pointe is the perfect location to showcase our approach to the banking experience.  First United is investing in our communities with new and completely renovated branches throughout Maryland and West Virginia.  We remain true to our community banking values while providing customers with the newest technologies and modern conveniences that we have to offer.”

The office includes a clear focus on the local community and efficient, faster transactions to serve both consumer and business customers, as well as modern banking technology. The new technology available to customers includes two ATMs with envelope-free deposit capabilities, video conferencing capabilities to allow for meetings with remote financial specialists and a ‘Discovery Center’ featuring the latest online options for customers. The Discovery Center includes multiple touchscreen displays that provide an interactive experience for customers and allows bankers to showcase and demonstrate the latest apps and provide customers with financial education tools.  Digital screens incorporated throughout the branch are also used to highlight local activities and events, as well as spotlight local non-profits and businesses throughout the day. Associates in the office are also heavily involved in various organizations in the local community and will host future meetings and events in the branch’s beautiful community room.  The community room is also available to non-profit organizations that may need space at times.

R.L. Fisher, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, commented, “We are so excited to open this new location and to continue our commitment to community banking in Washington County with now four convenient locations.  This newly constructed office offers self-service options utilizing new, easy and convenient technology, as well as personal, customized, banking solutions.  We welcome everyone to visit our Emerald Pointe office as well as our other three offices.”

The office, which is now open, will hold Grand Opening celebrations in the coming weeks.   Our strongest asset is our local banking team and like the people we serve, we live, work, volunteer and support our local communities.   Mr. Fisher is pleased to introduce the Emerald Pointe Staff.
