In brief: National Penn converts KNBT, Nittany branches
National Penn Bancshares Inc. changed the name of 39 bank branches this month, completing the unification of its 119 branches under the National Penn Bank brand.
National Penn converted 34 KNBT Bank branches in the Lehigh Valley and five Nittany Bank branches in Centre County, the Boyertown-based holding company said.
The name change "will bring National Penn a sense of brand continuity across our regions," Dave Kennedy, National Penn senior executive vice president and chief banking officer, said in a statement.
National Penn rebranded its Lancaster County branches a year ago. They were acquired when the company absorbed HomeTowne Heritage Bank in 2003.
The bank has five branch locations in the county, plus a headquarters that National Penn relocated late last year and expanded into its Lancaster Business Center, 280 Granite Run Drive in Manheim Township.
