The partnership will also include dynamic branding and marketing technology for increased communication with valued clients.

“Our valued clients depend on convenient ATM access, not only in the New Jersey and New York metro markets, but anywhere their personal and professional lives take them,” said Chris Ewing, Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for ConnectOne. “Our partnership with FCTI not only offers easy and recognizable access points across the country, but the additional benefit of a robust marketing platform that goes above and beyond traditional ATM branding.”

FCTI’s MBA program offers a singular opportunity for banks to offer secure, surcharge-free account access while generating real communications and ROI from their off-site cardholder interactions at the ATM,” said Robel Gugsa, CEO for FCTI, Inc. “We are excited to provide this level of access and technology to ConnectOne Bank clients at convenient locations nationwide.”
