First Bank Announces Grand Opening of West Hattiesburg Location


November 6, 2019

First Bank is pleased to announce the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of its newest facility in West Hattiesburg.

Located on Highway 98 and Hegwood Road near Oak Grove High School, the two-story modern marvel serves as the standard and prototype for First Bank branches moving forward. The design is sleek and fresh, and it offers an appealing and helpful environment for all customers. The new bank also features a bright, open retail area and multiple meeting spaces for lending, mortgage, and wealth management departments.

“With the opening of this branch, we look forward to being a thriving asset to the Hattiesburg area,” First Bank CEO, Jim Covington, said. “It is a tremendous step in our growth, and we just want to thank everyone who has continued to support us,” he said.

Market President, Chris Hester, agrees with Mr. Covington on the impact the new branch will have. “This building has been a labor of love and built to serve the city of Hattiesburg. We designed every detail with our current and future customers in mind. Each experience is tailor-made to provide modern solutions with a small-town, personal feel. Whether you’re a local entrepreneur, first-time homebuyer, or looking to retire, First Bank West Hattiesburg is your one-stop-shop for success.”

The event will be held on November 12, 2019, starting at 5:00 PM. There will be a ribbon cutting (5:30 PM), music, and hors d’oeuvres. The First Bank staff would love to welcome you to this special event.
