Park Sterling Bank
About Us: We're Full Service Banking "Our commitment is to be large enough to help customers achieve their financial aspirations and small enough to care that they do." Jim Cherry, CEO of Park Sterling Corporation At Park Sterling, our entire organization was built on a foundation that emphasizes listening, understanding, and personalizing our customers' banking experiences to provide both individuals and businesses with answers they can bank on. We're committed to understanding each client's particular needs and then building a solution around them. It's a culture that permeates our organization and a philosophy that extends well beyond traditional banking solutions to better serve the needs of the individuals, families, and businesses we serve throughout the Southeast. Park Sterling Bank was founded in 2006 to provide customers in the Southeast with a viable alternative to what can be limited resources offered by small community banks and the limited flexibility of large national banks. In 2010, Park Sterling raised $150 million in equity capital through an Initial Public Offering and embarked on an accelerated growth strategy focused on building long-term value for customers, shareholders, and employees. In 2015, Fortune Magazine named Park Sterling Bank to its list of Fastest Growing Publicly Held Companies. Park Sterling's two-pronged growth strategy includes both organic growth and expansion through partnerships with existing community banks located in attractive regional markets, ensuring a shared commitment of service to the region. Our recent merger with Richmond, VA-based First Capital Bank validates the success of this strategy, deepening our collective depth of talent and commitment to the communities we serve. Today, we are a regionally-focused financial services company with more than $3.2 billion in total assets and 55 banking offices stretching across the Carolinas, Virginia, and northern Georgia (at 2016Q1).
