Whitney Builds South Tampa Branch, Adds 5 Bankers

Whitney National Bank, headquartered in New Orleans, recently announced that a new banking center in south Tampa will offer at least five new jobs with plans to grow with the market. The branch will be located at 2121 South Dale Mabry Highway, and when completed will be Whitney's 18th full service location in the Tampa Bay region. Other full service centers can be found from New Port Richey to Sarasota.

The structure will be 3,250 square feet, will feature two drive-through banking lanes, as well as a 24-hour a day drive-up ATM. The center will offer customers personal and business banking services, including lending, as well as wealth and investment management services.

Michael Nicolosi, senior VP regional retail/business banking manager for Whitney Bank, say the company will be hiring for specific roles.

New positions being added include "an experienced branch manager that is skilled in both consumer and business banking supported by an assistant branch manager, customer service banker and a teller," Nicolosi says. "Because of the needs of this particular market, we also plan to have a mortgage originator on site. The south Tampa branch will additionally be supported by a business banker, wealth banker and commercial bankers that are located at our nearby regional corporate headquarters in the Westshore district."

Nicolosi describes what the company is looking for in potential employees: "Whitney Bank is a bank that prides itself on being large enough to offer the products and services typically found in the larger financial institutions; but with the personal service of a local community bank. For that reason, we are looking for experienced bankers actively involved in the south Tampa market committed to providing a very high level of personal service to our customers."

The new banking center is scheduled to open in December 2010.
