Wednesday | Mar. 2, 2016

Greenville, S.C. | November 5, 2015 –  The Bon Secours Wellness Arena announced today a 5-year partnership with Entegra Bank, formerly Macon Bank, of Franklin, NC.  Under the new agreement, Entegra Bank will become the Official Banking Partner of Bon Secours Wellness Arena and will have entitlement rights to the arena’s main entrance.

“We are proud to be a part of Entegra’s rebranding efforts as they expand into the Upstate.  We are committed to fully supporting their specific marketing initiatives and will deliver direct exposure of their brand to over 500,000 arena guests per year,” says Beth Paul, General Manager of the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. “Their community mindedness and involvement is a natural complement to our own mission of being strong community partners.”

“While Entegra Bank and its predecessors have enjoyed a successful 93-year history in Western North Carolina, the population and industry diversity found in Upstate South Carolina has and will continue to provide outstanding growth opportunities to enhance our company’s future,” says Market President Jimmy Kimbell.  “Our partnership with the Bon Secours Wellness Arena gives us a unique, highly credible platform for branding and marketing to the new customer relationships we hope to create in this market.”

“Since our inception in 1922, Entegra Bank and its predecessors have strived to be the financial partner of choice in every market we serve.  That desire has never wavered and fuels our intention to build similar relationships with our Upstate South Carolina communities,” President and CEO of Entegra Bank, Roger Plemens.
