Commercial Bank & Trust of PA has opened a new Asset Management & Trust Division office in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.

The new office will be staffed by current members from the trust division’s main office based in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.

Chris Emert, senior vice president and division manager of the Asset Management & Trust Division, said: "With the opening of this new office, we feel we will better serve our existing clients in the Ligonier area and fill a void created by the exit of larger banks from the Ligonier market."

"The professionals in the Asset Management & Trust Division have over two decades of banking/financial services experience. We all plan on being here for years to come and appreciate being able to work for a real community bank that focuses on service to its customers," Emert added.

The company also operates ten community banking facilities in Greensburg, Hempfield Township, Ligonier, North Huntingdon, Unity Township and West Newton, Pennsylvania and also maintains a commercial business development sales force throughout its entire market area.
