Century Bank coming to Wellesley Square by year-end

UPDATED: 6/30/12

Century Bank this week has posted a series of job ads online seeking employees in Wellesley, as the town readies for another new bank. The postings are for jobs such as head teller, branch manager and assistant branch manager.

The bank will be located at 75 Central St., in Wellesley Square,  once home to a Sovereign Bank.  Barry R. Sloane, the bank’s president and CEO, says Century Bank will be opening by year-end in town.

“While there are many banks in Wellesley, it is a community of significant deposits and investable assets.  We believe we bring a special brand of banking, as the largest family controlled bank in New England, and a contrast to most of the existing bank branches of global and out-of-state institutions currently in Wellesley,” Sloane writes.

Medford-based Century was formed in 1969 in Somerville and has branches in nearby communities such as Brookline and Newton, where an economic development advisory group is seeking to limit the influx of new bank branches.

Thanks to reader CT for the heads up.
