Emprise opens temporary McPherson office

Emprise Bank has opened a temporary location in McPherson and plans on opening a permanent full-service branch there later this year.

The Wichita-based bank said in a news release Monday that the temporary McPherson office is at 109 1/2 N. Main, “operating with full-branch powers.”

It is open from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday.

The $1.5-billion-asset bank said it has found and closed on a permanent location in downtown McPherson and expects to open that full-service branch in late 2015.

The bank purchased property at the southwest corner of Kansas and Ash, where it plans to build a new building with additional office space that it will lease.

Emprise announced in late October that it had hired Chet Lang as McPherson market president and Sandy Ide as commercial banking specialist. It has since added Angie Timson as branch manager.
