Local Bank, 3 Others Unify Under ‘Tompkins’ Name

WYOMISSING PA – Tompkins Financial Corp., which owns and operates Tompkins VIST-branded bank branch offices in Birdsboro, Boyertown, Oaks, and Pottstown, will unify that institution with three others located in New York state under a single name, Tompkins, the corporation said Friday (May 7, 2021) in a media release. Pending regulatory approval, the name change will occur later this year.

In addition to Tompkins VIST the corporation also owns and operates Tompkins Trust Co., Ithaca NY; Tompkins Mahopac Bank, Mahopac NY; and Tompkins Bank of Castile, Arcade NY.

All existing banking products and services will remain unchanged and will continue to be available in all markets under the Tompkins brand. Two other Tompkins Financial affiliates, Tompkins Insurance Agencies and Tompkins Financial Advisors, retain their respective names and are unaffected by the change.

Bank executives said customers will see sign changes that reflect the new name next year. However, regional leaderships and regional boards of directors remains unchanged. The bank name adjustments will be possible by consolidating four existing banking charters into one, thus reducing duplicate regulatory and legal proceedings, they added.
