Chatterton Road Absa branch officially launched

2007-12-10 00:00

The venue, which includes a fully-fledged retail component, is located in a prominent area of the city, which could soon become a banking node of note.

The main reason for the relocation was to bring Absa’s service offerings closer to the new business hub of Pietermaritzburg in a safe and convenient environment.

Themba Mathe, KwaZulu-Natal GM of Absa Retail Bank, told The Witness that about 97 staff members are based at the complex.

He said that the complex offers clients convenient parking and good access conditions.

Mathe said staff members include private bankers, relationship managers, property specialists, small business specialists, financial planners, portfolio managers and front office staff all under the guidance of Branch Manager Stephne Van Rensburg.

Mathe said their flagship 3 000 metres2 office complex in Pietermaritzburg was envisaged shortly after Pietermaritzburg became the provincial capital city. He said that it was not an easy task to find a suitable venue, adding that this venue offers a fast developing location in a busy area.

He noted that their aim revolves around retaining and serving their existing customer base in the city, while also attracting new clients.
