Newton Centre welcomed another neighbor Wednesday as Century Bank celebrated the opening of its newest location at 32 Langley Road with a ribbon cutting and grand opening.
The Sloane family, who are from Newton and founded the bank, schmoozed through the crowd of community members and elected officials, including several aldermen and Mayor Setti Warren.
"Newton means so much to us," said Barry Sloane, Century's President and CEO. "We're thrilled to be back and we're going to do everything we can to be a part of the community."
Sloane was joined by his sister, Linda Sloane Kay, the bank's executive vice president, and their father, Marshall, who is the founder and chairman of the bank. The matriarch of the family, Barbara Sloane, was also present during the celebration.
The celebratory ribbon, which was cut by Marshall Sloan and Mayor Setti Warren, was made of $20 bills and donated to the Newton Public Schools' Modern Global Communities Program.
Century has other locations in Boston, Braintree, Allston, Winchester, Beverly, Cambridge, Burlington, Brookline, Everett, Lynn, Malden, Medford, Salem, Somerville, Quincy and Peabody. Another location in Newton is located at the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center on Boylston Street in Chestnut Hill.
