Banking on location and convenience
First Oklahoma Bank opens a new branch in midtown.
Tom Bennett Jr., chairman of the board; Sue Bennett, senior vice president, marketing director; and Kevin Hutchens, senior vice president, project manager.
Location and convenience are what drew First Oklahoma Bank to construct its new branch in Brookside, Chairman Tom Bennett Jr. says.
“The midtown market is a wonderful part of the Tulsa community, and we wanted to be in a place that’s convenient and on the way to places people might be going,” Bennett says.
Factors like these, along with the bank’s record of financial and customer service, are important for its existing and potential customers, he adds.
The new 10,400-square-foot branch opened Aug. 23 at East 41st Street and South Rockford Avenue.
Along with offering great rates on personal checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs, Bennett says First Oklahoma Bank adds personal touches, such as ensuring its customers speak with a live banking representative for account information as well as providing a grace program for overdrafts. Those are just some of the reasons he says his institution stands out in the banking field.
“We are trying to treat people as we would want to be treated,” Bennett says.
The midtown location is the third for the bank. Other locations can be found inside the CityPlex Towers at East 81st Street and South Lewis Avenue and in Glencoe, Okla.
