1st Summit Bank opens a new Community Office on 6th Avenue in Altoona!

On the eve of its 100th year in business, 1st Summit Bank continues to grow with the opening of its 18th location on October 23, 2023, at 5812 6th Avenue in the Eldorado section of Altoona. This newly renovated space is 1st Summit Bank’s third location in Blair County, expanding beyond its convenient in-store Walmart Office and its Hollidaysburg Loan Production Office.

“Having been a part of the Altoona Community for the past 20 years, we have built some great relationships with many businesses and consumers.  This new location will allow us to provide improved service and convenience to those valuable customers as well as to many new partners in this important market,” said J. Eric Renner, 1st Summit Bank’s CEO and President.

“1st Summit Bank presents a unique brand of personal service and true community banking values that will allow it to continue growing and developing new banking relationships.  “Altoona is fortunate to have so many long-standing, respected, and community-focused family businesses and we are excited to deepen connections with them for generations to come,” Renner explained.

“We are your bank. We focus on relationships, not on numbers, and our business lending practices are very much the same, focusing on developing strong relationships with our customers and supporting growth in the markets we serve,” said Renner.  This unwavering commitment to the customer is evident by the experience both inside and outside of the offices, where the bank’s staff actively engages in strengthening, energizing, and supporting their regions and neighborhoods by volunteering and sponsoring organizations that make these hometowns special.

“Our professionals and their families donate time, talent, and resources to help local charitable and cultural organizations,” said Renner. “We seek ways to help our clients and their neighborhoods prosper and thrive by supporting both local small businesses and the community’s charitable and cultural organizations.”

1st Summit Bank is well-positioned and deeply committed to providing safe and supportive financial services to all the communities it serves. The bank is well-capitalized with strong liquidity and strong credit quality, and does business in its home markets, gathering money locally and lending locally to support businesses and workers in their communities. As a full-service bank, 1st Summit offers an array of Consumer and Business Banking Solutions that include state-of-the-art Electronic Banking and Payment Services, Personal and Business Financing, Mortgage, Home Equity, and Auto Loans along with Investment and Trust Services.
