PITTSBURGH – First National Bank of Pennsylvania, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corp., was founded in 1864 and today employs more than 4,000.
FNB is one of the 50 largest bank holding companies in the U.S., with approximately $42 billion in total combined proforma assets and operations spanning seven states and the District of Columbia.
The diversified financial services company continued its growth trajectory in 2021 as it executed its expansion strategy, including an acquisition and extensive increase in its ATM network, reported Jennifer Reel, director of corporate communications.
Thanks to strategic investments in innovation, staff and expansion, FNB meets the varying needs of customers within its footprint, even in the most unpredictable times. The company continues to accelerate its clicks-to-bricks strategy and integration of in-branch, online and mobile channels, resulting in a seamless experience that sets FNB apart.
With the 2021 unveiling of the mobile eStore, FNB has created a fully digital bank, where customers can apply for loans, access financial education and schedule appointments with experts by using their chosen device, Reel said.
In September, FNB’s eStore was recognized in the BCX [Best Customer Experience] Awards’ mobile experience category. FNB was one of four winners honored for providing an innovative customer experience.
Long-standing investments in digital technology have enabled the company to broaden its reach at a time when access has never mattered more. To further supplement the branch network, FNB has boosted its ATM presence by more than 60% since January 2020, including in Cleveland, Baltimore, and throughout Virginia, she said.
Family-friendly policies such as generous paid parental leave, financial support for new parents and caregiver leave have led to FNB receiving more than 35 awards as a leading workplace, including national recognition in 2021 as a Top Workplaces USA.
FNB continuously invests in a differentiated culture and premium customer experience, earning recognition from Forbes as one of the World’s Best Banks.
Last year FNB celebrated the groundbreaking of its new corporate headquarters, FNB Financial Center, in Pittsburgh’s historic Hill District.
Selecting the Hill neighborhood makes FNB one of few public companies to establish its headquarters in a predominantly minority community, Reel said. This falls in line with FNB’s commitment to support vulnerable and historically underserved communities.
Early this year, FNB completed the merger with Baltimore-based Howard Bancorp Inc., deepening its presence in the mid-Atlantic region. The merger positions FNB in markets where it can increase loans, low-cost deposits and fee income.
