KBC Opens new Hub in Stillorgan

11/08/14

Stillorgan is the latest new hub as part of KBC’s retail banking and hub expansion.

KBC Bank Ireland has opened the doors to its newest hub in Stillorgan, Co. Dublin, which becomes the fourth new banking hub for customers in the Dublin area, and follows the launch of other retail banking hubs in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway over the past 18 months.

Located at Maple House, Lower Kilmacud Road Stillorgan, the new hub opening is part of KBC’s move towards becoming a full retail bank in Ireland and follows the announcement that KBC will open further new hubs this year, with Dundrum and Maynooth confirmed as locations so far.

With the development of new banking hubs, competitive products and customer-friendly services, KBC has already attracted over 9000 new customers each quarter. As KBC further establishes its retail presence in Ireland, more innovative products and services are planned for 2014.

KBC’s new Stillorgan hub offers a relaxed, modern space to meet with the bank’s personal finance specialists on KBC’s range of competitive products, including its new Current AccountSavingsInsurance and Mortgages.  The hub is open from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5.30pm, with late opening on Thursday (until 7pm) and Saturday opening from 10am – 2pm to make banking easier for customers with busy schedules.

Dara Deering, Executive Director and Head of Retail Banking, KBC Bank Ireland said: “Our customers tell us that they like what KBC is bringing to the market; new and attractive retail banking products and services, the latest online and mobile technology, and hubs designed with our customers’ needs in mind. We are delighted to open our newest hub in Stillorgan, where customers can expect a warm welcome from our retail team and a new way of banking from KBC. KBC is now a genuine alternative for customers looking for competitive products, better choice and leading customer service in Ireland.”

In addition to opening new hubs, KBC’s distribution network is continuing to grow significantly with an increasing number of advisors on the road, mobile bank and pop-up units and new innovations in mobile, online and customer service technology, including a real-time online chat facility for customers.
