Eagle River, Wis. – October 12, 2015 – Associated Bank today opened a new Eagle River branch with expanded capabilities and a vibrant, contemporary design. 

The new 1490-square-foot branch features Associated’s unique branded architecture, full service lobby with traditional teller stations, drive thru lanes and an updated 24-hour ATM machine with deposit capability. In addition, staff is equipped with technology to help customers learn the additional conveniences available through Associated’s online banking channels.

Olejniczak and Relationship Banker Karen Pockat are 25-year veterans of the bank’s Eagle River operation.  “It has been an honor to help meet the banking needs of individual and business customers in our great part of the state during that period,” Olejniczak said. Other branch employees include Teller Supervisor, Lindsey Merkel, Universal Banker, Katie De La Garza and teller, Sydney Munds.

Olejniczak believes that the expanded capabilities of the new facility, together with the team’s continuing commitment to serving its customers, will provide clients with an enhanced banking experience.
