The Teaneck location offers full-service personal and business banking, including drive-up amenities, private conference areas, an enhanced customer experience featuring the latest in banking technology, including a video message screen, digital rate display, and an “Intelligent ATM” which can be utilized to deposit funds, transfer money, and other tasks that can typically only be done via teller service.

Said Thomas J. Kemly, President and CEO of Columbia Bank, “While many banks may argue the value of physical locations, Columbia Bank understands the importance of a human connection. Columbia Bank has uniquely leveraged our branches to become places for not only transactions and account openings, but also for client demos, seminars, destination days, and more.” Kemly added, “Our Branch Network recently received a national ‘Best Branch Experience’ award and I invite the community to visit our newest Teaneck location. Through our personal touch and our commitment to supporting local charities, you can feel good about where you bank.”
