GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--National Bank Holdings Corporation (NYSE: NBHC) announced today it will streamline its focus on serving its clients through full-service banking centers across its core geography of Colorado, Kansas, Missouri and Texas, as well as through online and mobile banking channels. The decision will result in the integration of its limited-service retirement center locations into its full-service banking center network, as well as the exit of its limited presence in California. Following this change, the company will continue to operate 97 banking centers.
The company will exit a total of four banking centers in Northern California, which it acquired with the 2011 purchase of Community Banks of Colorado. The company will also integrate its 32 limited-service retirement center locations into its full-service banking center network. These locations were acquired as part of its 2010 purchase of Hillcrest Bank.
The affected centers are expected to remain open until close of business on December 31, 2013. The company looks forward to continuing its relationship with clients who are affiliated with any of these locations, and encourages them to enjoy the benefits of full-service banking, mobile banking and online banking services. These clients will also be offered customized benefits to minimize any inconveniences experienced during their transition.
