Chairman of Dandenong Ranges Community Bank® Group, Peter Marke, said the opening was a significant day in the recovery of Marysville and surrounding districts.
“Although the primary aim was to return banking to the local community, any initiative which makes banking easier for locals is vital is getting Marysville up and running once again,” he said.
Bendigo Bank’s agency model continues to be a stepping stone for communities to achieve financial success. There are more than 100 agencies servicing communities across Australia, many of which have been converted into Community Bank® sites.
Marysville Agency Manager Dianne Lisle said the community will benefit not only by the Agency’s capability to provide ‘real time banking services’, but also by giving residents the opportunity to support the community in which they live and work.
“We are undertaking extensive training to be able to provide the quality service that is synonymous with the Bendigo Bank and Community Bank® brands.”
The Marysville Agency is located at Marysville Triangle Real Estate, Darwin Street, Marysville, and is open from 10.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday, and 10.00am to 12.00pm on Saturdays.
