MILWAUKEE – Johnson Bank on Thursday announced it has filed an application to open a bank branch in Mequon.

“We are a strong financial partner to businesses and the people who work and live in the greater Milwaukee area. Our new location in Mequon further demonstrates our commitment to this area and to Ozaukee County,” said Peter Engel, executive vice president of consumer banking for Johnson Financial Group.

The branch is expected to open in late fall 2014 after receipt of regulatory approvals, according to a company statement.

“Area residents will soon have access to a broad range of financial services including banking, wealth and insurance. Our privately held status and local ownership provide our customers responsive assistance and helpful advice with a long term view that only a privately held company can deliver,” Engel said.

Johnson Bank is a member of Johnson Financial Group, a premier financial services company offering comprehensive financial solutions in banking, trust, insurance, investment management and leasing. The $3.9 billion financial services company has operating branches in Wisconsin and Arizona.
