Here are some quick facts about the new branch:

  • The new office, located at 9010 Memorial Parkway SW, marks the fourth Bank Independent location in Huntsville and the sixth in Madison County.
  • Crystal Green will serve as the sales officer for the branch, while Jill Waltress will serve as the sales manager.
  • The bank now employs more than 60 people in Madison County.
  • Expansion in Madison County includes the five-story office building at 225 Holmes Ave in early 2023, the Hampton Cove office in the summer of 2023, and the recent opening of the West Madison office in 2024.

“We initially came into Madison County with the goal of proving that we could be a community-oriented, service-oriented bank. I’m proud to say that ten years later, we’re celebrating a decade of success. We now have six locations in Madison County and 60 employees. We look forward to being an integral part of the South Huntsville community and to many more years of prosperity.”
