Banesco USA is the process of expanding its headquarters at Alhambra Center, located at 150 Alhambra Circle in Coral Gables.
The bank has occupied part of the 12th floor but plans to move from there and occupy the entire 10th floor in April, a lease totaling approximately 9,000 square feet.
“The whole floor is being re-built from scratch,” said Banesco USA CEO Rafael “Rafo” Saldaña.Banesco USA also has a presence in the lobby and has bought the naming rights to the building, which will be called the Banesco Center, Mr. Saldaña said.
The bank’s three principal owners — Juan Carlos Escotet, Xavier Lujan and Ricardo Ayala — are key people at Banesco Banco Universal, Venezuela’s largest bank. Banesco USA is a separate company from the Caracas-based bank. It is a privately-owned, state-chartered bank that opened in January 2006.
Banesco USA also plans to add a South Florida branch in April through a purchase of one of Great Florida Bank’s branches in Weston in Broward County.
