GREENSBORO, N.C. – NewBridge Bank, one of the largest community banks in North Carolina, is pleased to announce it will hold a grand opening celebration for its first full-service branch in Raleigh and the greater Triangle area on July 23, 2013.

With our first full-service branch, we are excited to introduce our financial expertise and value-added business model to the region and look forward to serving the vibrant, local communities for years to come.”
NewBridge Bank’s Raleigh branch is led by a veteran team of community bankers. Jonathan Taylor leads the Bank’s presence in the market.
