Milwaukee, Wis. (February 12, 2009) – Securant Bank & Trust invites the public to visit its newly opened Elm Grove branch located in the Autumn Grove Plaza at 12960 W.

Beginning March 1, visitors can register at the bank for daily drawings that will take place at the Elm Grove branch during its Grand Opening Week that begins March 16.

“We’re excited about our new Elm Grove location because it is in a highly visible location that will help us continue to grow in the retail and commercial areas by helping our clients thrive,” said David Davis, Securant Bank & Trust president and CEO. “Our bank is growing; we have a strong capital position and money to lend,” Davis said. Securant Bank & Trust focuses on serving owner-managed businesses and clients with an eye on their financial future. The Elm Grove branch, which opened February 2, has lobby and drive-up hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.

“We’re proud to be part of the Elm Grove community and invite the public to visit us now and during our Grand Opening Week when we’ll have a daily drawing for gift certificates, including a grand prize vacation getaway worth $1,500,” said Spencer Mather, assistant vice president of commercial banking, who is leading bank operations at the Elm Grove branch. “We enjoyed seeing our first guest Steve Onsager of Infratrol Manufacturing Corp. in the bank last week.”

Grand opening festivities will include daily drawings for gift certificates from neighboring merchants. Gift certificates for Takara Japanese Restaurant, Wisconsin Vision, Elements Therapeutic Massage, Wine Cellar of Wisconsin, Elm Grove Perk & Pub and Elm Grove Travel will be given away during the daily drawing.
