Encore Bank Partners with Local Builder for Port Charlotte Branch Remodel

– Encore Bank, is pleased to announce that a remodel of its Port Charlotte branch, located at 2120 Kings Highway, is now underway, with completion expected by mid-October. Southwest Florida based Boyette & Miller Construction and Development has been contracted to renovate the building and replicate the modern lines and welcoming aesthetic of the community bank’s five other locations.

Boyette & Miller Vice President Robert A. Miller said, “Encore Bank is in a position to solidify a trend of business renovations as Charlotte County emerges from recovery of Hurricane Charley 10 years ago.” Miller, who is also the 2014 President of the Charlotte-DeSoto Building Industry Association, said that after the dust settled on Hurricane Charley’s renovations, the company’s priorities refocused to community based commercial projects such as medical offices, banks and landmarks.

Port Charlotte Branch Manager Katherine Robinson said, “As a community bank, Encore is equally committed to keeping money in our local community. Hiring Bob and his company is just one of the ways we endeavor to reinforce that commitment so the local economy has more resources to strengthen and grow.”

Encore Bank is experiencing a period of rapid growth and expansion. It recently announced quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year gains in net income and other positive financials. This year, the bank expanded its residential lending activities by increasing its sales force with experienced lenders from the communities in its market. Encore Bank also completed a beautiful renovation of its Bonita Springs branch in January.

The Port Charlotte branch of Encore Bank remains open to serve customers during the renovations.

Encore Bank has six convenient locations, including two branches in Naples at 3003 Tamiami Trail North and 2370 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Bonita Springs at 4450 Bonita Beach Road, Fort Myers at 7920 Summerlin Lakes Dr., Port Charlotte at 2120 Kings Highway, and Sun City Center at 1653 Sun City Center Plaza.
