Southwind Bank Hosts What's Up in Russell, Discusses Renovation

Southwind Whats Up 4-10-18 1Southwind Bank in downtown Russell hosted Tuesday's Russell Main Street, Inc. What's Up in Russell Coffee and the ongoing renovation and construction project at the bank was highlighted.

According to Southwind Bank President and CEO Vance Ruggels, through the years, the bank has undergone a few expansions and once again, the bank has outgrown its space.

Southwind Bank recently purchased the two-story building immediately south of the existing bank. The two-story building will be demolished and a new two-story addition will be constructed. The addition will house a large conference room, offices and storage space.

Also, over the past few months, renovations have been underway in the existing bank to update the main lobby and offices.

According to Ruggels, the hope is to have the entire project complete by the end of 2018.

Russell's Southwind Bank location opened in 1991. Southwind Bank, originally known as First National Bank, was founded in Natoma in 1909 and continues operation today.
