GREENEVILLE - Greene County Bancshares Inc. on Tuesday announced it is changing all its banks in the region to GreenBank, including the Sullivan County Bank branch in downtown Kingsport, the Hawkins County Bank branches in Surgoinsville and Rogersville, and the Washington County Bank. With branches in East and Middle Tennessee, as well as one each in Bristol, Va., and Hot Springs in western North Carolina, the Greeneville-based bank has been operating under 18 distinct bank names. The single name will be used in 51 bank offices in a 400-mile area. "We recognized the importance of having our customers and potential customers experience the true convenience, breadth and scope of our banking network, which were obscured by our organization operating under 18 different names." The bank has extended its operating hours to include early morning and evening, as well as weekend hours on Saturdays and Sundays in selected areas. Changes at all branches are scheduled to be completed by April. Greene County Bancshares Inc., with total assets of more than $1.7 billion, is the holding company for the bank.
