North Shore Bank opens new branch

Wisconsin’s North Shore Bank has opened a new branch in Germantown, Wis., its first location in Washington County.

The 2,250-square-foot building features a Germanic design concept and branch interior as well as remote video teller service and 70 hours/7 days a week extended banking hours.

Erica Hughes was named branch manager of the new location. Hughes has been with the bank for over three years as branch manager, and served the Germantown community previously in roles at area financial institutions. Additionally, Germantown resident Jeff Burkhart will operate as the office’s dedicated Mortgage Loan Officer.

“North Shore Bank has wanted to establish a presence in Germantown for a long time,” said Susan T. Doyle, senior vice president of retail banking at the $2.2 billion North Shore Bank. “With the area’s continual development and North Shore Bank having a strong customer base in the area already, we’re thrilled to continue our growth and join the Germantown community.”

The bank will hold a food drive and match donations up to $500 dollars for St. Boniface/St. Gabriel Catholic Parish Food Pantry. It will also match donations to the Germantown Public Library up to $1000 through the end of August.

Brookfield-based North Shore Bank has 45 offices in eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
