During the fall of 1996, the Bank made a commitment to the West Ashley community to provide it with a full service banking facility. On March 11, 1998, this promise was fulfilled. Ford Menefee and Chase Talbert handle business development as well as the commercial and consumer lending. The West Ashley office provides a full range of banking services and is also the home of the Bank's Operations Center. Michael Ciappa is the Branch Manager for this office.
