Community Bank opens branch on Del Din
August 12, 2013
Residents and commuters to Caserma Del Din can now conduct daily banking transactions at the recently opened facility in Vicenza.
"Today is huge for the Soldiers in barracks here on Caserma Del Din," said Jane Jackson, senior banking center supervisor for the Del Din Community Bank, which officially opened Aug. 5. "They can come here for all their financial needs daily."
A staff of five will provide the full range of banking services provided by Community Bank on overseas installations.
Officials from Bank of America/Community Bank, U.S. Army Garrison Vicenza, 173rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 509th Signal Battalion, NAVFAC and the Transformation Construction Management Office and others joined to cut the ribbon opening the new facility in the Multiuse Building, Building 10, located between the two parking structures on Del Din.
Acting USAG Vicenza Commander Chuck Walls said the branch provides a much needed personal interaction for Soldiers that the multiple ATMs across the installation can not.
"This is crucial as already 60-65 percent of our Soldiers are here on Caserma Del Din," he said. "Opening this Community Bank branch is a valuable start for Bank of America as the contract bank for DFAS in providing crucial services to our Soldiers, along with Global Credit Union and the Italian BNL."
Walls, Jackson, Bank of America representatives Terri Rooney and Shane Parkinson, and Yolonda Montgomery, vice president and banking centers manager for Del Din and Ederle, all thanked the many who worked diligently to ensure the opening of the banking center, the first new Community Bank in six years.
With nearly 80 banking centers and more than 320 ATMs on bases around the world, Community Bank is operated by Bank of America to provide stateside-like banking services to service members and contractors who are stationed overseas.
The Del Din Community Bank is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and closed on American holidays. The phone number is 637-2265 or 0444-92-5981.
