Independence Bank announces the addition of its 26th office at 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane. Doors officially opened for business on September 7th, 2021 which became the latest site since 2018. With three decades of banking experience, Alesia Coffey leads this location.

“Our expectation is to always do the right thing,” Coffey said. “We strive to maintain integrity and confidentiality, listen to seek understanding, show empathy with genuine concern towards others, give back to our communities and never stop learning or growing.”

This location is situated off of Gardiner Lane between a United States Postal Service and the Henry Watterson Expressway near the city’s second largest Industrial Park.

“This gives us close access to a wide variety of home grown companies,” Independence Bank President Louis Straub stated.

Alongside Coffey, Christi Chappell and Tina Freeman joined the Bank’s Louisville team after serving this location for 10+ years. Long lasting, multi-generational relationships are currently being cultivated through these employees which coincide with our existing Louisville area connection.

“We believe we can offer superior client service, resulting in significant personal and investment business,” Straub added. “We also hope to gain several new commercial bank relationships through the convenience of an expanded footprint.”

The Bank’s signature location sits at 3901 Shelbyville Road in St. Matthews.
