First Citizens Completes Conversion of CIT Bank Division Branches

First Citizens Bank’s CIT Bank division completed conversion of its branches to First Citizens’ operations and systems. This conversion integrates CIT Bank branch customer accounts into First Citizens’ products and services.

“This is our second large bank branch conversion this year related to the CIT merger and it represents another significant achievement in our progress,” Frank B. Holding Jr., chairman and CEO of First Citizens Bank, said. “Over the past 10 months, we’ve executed adeptly on our integration plans, expanded our footprint and transitioned the vast majority of our CIT consumer customers to First Citizens. We’re well positioned to continue to increase value for our customers and shareholders. We’re grateful to our associates across the combined organization who have worked diligently to achieve this milestone.”

From the close of business on Nov. 10 and the reopening of branches on Nov. 14, First Citizens converted 11 CIT Bank branches in Arizona, California, Florida, Nebraska, Nevada and Texas to First Citizens Bank. These CIT Bank branch customers now have access to the full array of products and services offered by First Citizens. In addition, they can bank at any First Citizens Bank location, through First Citizens Digital Banking (online and mobile), by ATM and by telephone.

Information detailing the conversion and transition to First Citizens was mailed to customers in October.

CIT Bank previously operated as a division of CIT, which merged with and became a division of First Citizens Bank in January. In addition to this conversion of CIT Bank branches, First Citizens completed the transition of its OneWest Bank division to its operations and systems in July.
