Rockland Road.

According to Anthony C. Weagley, President and CEO of Malvern Bancorp, Inc. and Malvern Federal Savings Bank, “The new Montchanin office will be less than four miles from the Pennsylvania border, so it is well situated to serve the needs of our growing client base in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania, and northern Delaware. Like our five other private banking offices, our new Montchanin office will offer consumers a superior, personalized banking experience, including banking by appointment, which enables customers to schedule a meeting with our financial professionals at a time that is convenient to them.”

The new private banking office will be located in Bell Rock Capital’s Montchanin Office, in a historic train station at the center of Montchanin. The community was named for Anne Alexandrine de Montchanin, mother of Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours, grandmother of the founder of the DuPont Gunpowder Company and once part of the Winterthur Estate.

Malvern’s commercial, regional private clients group and wealth management lines of business, through its partnership with Bell Rock Capital, are now provided through expanded geographic locations. The new office will be Malvern’s sixth Private Banking office. The others are in Villanova, Glen Mills and Quakertown, PA., Morristown, NJ, and Palm Beach, FL.

Cho will lead Malvern’s Private Banking division, which assists high-net-worth individuals, families and businesses with wealth management, commercial and residential lending. She will operate out of the Bank’s Villanova office. Prior to joining Malvern she served in wealth management and private banking executive management positions at Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, U.S. Trust Bank of America and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. She has served her community as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, a committee member of the Philadelphia Korean Community Center and member of the Women’s Way grant committee.
