First Federal Bancorp Inc. announced that it has changed the name of a portion of the Retail Mortgage division from CBC Mortgage to First Federal Bank.

The updated name will be reflected in the mortgage teams and offices in Fernandina Beach and the Carolinas, including Ft. Mill, Mount Pleasant, Charlotte, Beaufort and Port Royal.

“This name change reflects the evolution of our organization, to have a consistent brand in the core regions we serve,” said John Medina, president and chief executive officer of First Federal. “We are excited to provide our mortgage customers with the same exemplary level of service under one brand umbrella that has become our hallmark for more than half a century.”
