Banesco USA Celebrates Opening of New Innovative Banking Center in Aventura

Leading South Florida bank partners with Don Soffer High School to launch new branch

Miami, FL – September 30, 2019 – Banesco USA, South Florida Business Journal’s 2019 Business of the Year, celebrated its expansion to Aventura with the opening of a new innovative banking center located at Aventura Park Square, 2980 NE 207th Street, Suite 106 Aventura, FL 33180. The standing-room event featured remarks from Aventura community leaders Major Enid Weisman, Don Soffer High School Principal David McKnight, and Rabbi Mendel Rosenfeld from Lubavitch Aventura South.

“We are thrilled to open our new, innovative banking center, providing our loyal customers with a sense of what banking in the future might hold,” said Jorge Salas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Banesco USA. “These days customers demand convenience, technological speed and flexibility, yet always with a human touch. That has been our mantra at Banesco USA from day one, now embodied in this branch and in the dynamic and growing Aventura market,” he added.

“We’re so excited to be giving back to the Aventura community through a commitment to Don Soffer High School” said Carlos Palomares, Banesco USA Chairman of the Board. “It’s a great honor to be a part of this project, which has as its main mission to ensure that students achieve their academic potential, achieve financial literacy and a greater understanding of the banking profession,” he said.

The full service-branch includes an intelligent ATM (ITM), teller cash recycler (TCR), iPad Stations, consultation rooms and high-end projection monitors to deliver the best of balance among convenience, technology, flexibility and personal touch. In addition, the branch provides clients 24/7 access to the ATM and deposits by swiping their debit cards for access.

The branch’s open floor plan and architectural elements aims to create a different banking experience that’s more welcoming and collaborative for clients. The space features an overhead wood ceiling that unfolds and greets visitors with dynamic angles while glass and high ceilings provide ample natural light and connection to the surrounding area.

Banesco USA has been on a successful run this year with record-breaking quarterly results, the acquisition of Brickell Bank, being named Business of the Year for 2019, and a recently raised Fitch Rating outlook to Positive. With the opening of the Aventura banking center, Banesco now has six branches in South Florida and one in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
