Financial center named after Bank of America’s founder gets new look

Anne Giannini McWilliams, granddaughter of Bank of America founder Amadeo Peter Giannini (also known as AP Giannini) joined officials at the grand opening of the remodeled AP Giannini Financial Center in San Mateo. The original branch opened in 1963 near the family residence where Anne’s father, Mario Giannini, spent most of his youth.

AP Giannini was an American banker who founded Bank of America in 1930 and is credited as the inventor of many modern banking practices. During his stewardship of the company, Bank of America withstood the Great Depression while also funding California’s movie industry and the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The newly renovated AP Giannini Financial Center now features digital multimedia displays and handheld tablets with interactive tools for customers to learn about mobile and online banking platforms and demo financial tools, along with cardless ATMs to compliment the full suite of products and experts available onsite.

“The remodeling of the AP Giannini Financial Center is one example of Bank of America’s continued growth and modernization of our financial centers,” said Bank of America Silicon Valley Market President Raquel González. “It was an honor to have Anne Giannini McWilliams cut the ribbon to the remodeled center named after her grandfather.”

Today, Bank of America has 74 financial centers across Silicon Valley. More than half are being renovated and modernized to reflect changing customer banking needs, with both the latest high tech features for simple transactions and high touch personalized service with local experts for more complicated needs like loans and advisement.
