First Citizens Bank announced that its Gwinnett Community Bank division based in Duluth, Ga., has completed its conversion to First Citizens’ operations and systems. This conversion aligns customer accounts to First Citizens products and services and puts both banks on the same operational and technical systems.

“We’re pleased to officially welcome Gwinnett Community Bank customers to First Citizens, and our associates are ready and prepared to provide them with outstanding service,” said Frank B. Holding Jr., chairman and CEO of First Citizens Bank. “We look forward to deepening our relationships with new and current clients and continuing to grow in Georgia.”

Effective today (Nov. 9), three former Gwinnett Community division branches in Georgia now carry the First Citizens Bank name. Those locations are 2775 Buford Highway, Duluth; 3893 Lawrenceville Suwanee Road, Suwanee; and 2715 Hamilton Mill Road, Buford. Signs at these former Gwinnett Community division offices were changed to First Citizens Bank.

Gwinnett customers now have access to the wide selection of First Citizens products and services. In addition, they can bank at any First Citizens location throughout the bank’s 19-state branch network, through First Citizens Digital Banking (online and mobile), by ATM and by telephone. Information detailing the conversion and transition to First Citizens was mailed to Gwinnett customers in October. First Citizens has provided banking services in Georgia for 23 years.
