Union Bank recently celebrated the opening of its new, full-service banking office in Queen Anne, at 1936 Queen Anne Ave. N., Suite 6.

Seattle City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw joined Union Bank executives for a special ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 11. City Councilmembers Tim Burgess and Sally Clark also attended the celebration earlier in the evening.

Union Bank donated $2,500 to the Queen Anne Food Bank and the Queen Anne Co-op Preschool. Representatives from each organization were on hand during the opening celebration to acknowledge the bank’s support.

The Queen Anne branch is managed by Ariel Pidlaoan, who is responsible for cultivating the overall customer base, developing new client relationships and leading a team of locally based bankers.

Pidlaoan is joined by branch service officer Laura Moser, who manages branch operations and customer service, and senior relationship banker Jim Shum.

Pidlaoan joined Union Bank in 2011 and most recently served as branch manager of the Seattle-Lake City branch. Pidlaoan volunteers with the Queen Anne Food Bank, Queen Anne Chamber of Commerce, Queen Anne Neighborhood Alliance, Queen Anne Helpline, Queen Anne Farmers Market and Rotary Club of Seattle Northeast and is a supporter of the Queen Anne Co-Op.

Shum joined Union Bank in 1988 as an operations specialist at the Downtown Seattle branch. Shum volunteers with various organizations, including the Queen Anne Farmers Market.

Moser joined Union Bank in 2011. Previously, she served as a lead teller at Wells Fargo Bank in Everett, Wash.

The new Union Bank Queen Anne branch offers a community meeting room for nonprofit organizations to use for after-hours meetings.
