Our History

Located in northeast Florida, FirstAtlantic Bank, a Division of the National Bank of Commerce, is a full service community bank with 6 financial centers located in Jacksonville, Orange Park, and Ponte Vedra Beach.

FirstAtlantic Bank operates under a traditional community banking model with an emphasis on high-quality customer service and relationship-driven banking, while at the same time offering a full array of financial services for businesses and consumers.

Through the years, FirstAtlantic Bank expanded its footprint in Northeast Florida. The Southpoint Financial Center (Jacksonville) opened in July 2007 and the Normandy Financial Center (Jacksonville) opened on April 21, 2008.

FirstAtlantic Bank acquired our Kingsley Avenue (Orange Park) location on July 22, 2011 from Synovus Bank. Later that year, our San Marco Financial Center (Jacksonville) was acquired from the former CenterBank of Jacksonville on December 16, 2011. In December 2012, we acquired our Beach & Hodges Financial Center (Jacksonville) from the former Prosperity Bank. FirstAtlantic Bank further expanded through the acquisition of the Ponte Vedra location from the former Heritage Bank of North Florida on April 19, 2013.

In January 2018, FirstAtlantic Bank became a division of National Bank of Commerce, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of National Commerce Corporation (Nasdaq: NCOM). National Bank of Commerce operated community banks in Alabama, Georgia and Florida under trade names which reflected our commitment to the communities we serve.

On April 1, 2019, National Bank of Commerce and its affiliates, merged with CenterState Bank, N.A., which was started by a group of bankers and entrepreneurs over 25 years ago. The group of bankers came together around the belief that local ownership and local management would translate into a better bank. Through their vision and investment, a bank was born. Our Holding Company, CenterState Bank Corporation, headquartered in Winter Haven, Florida, was founded in 2000. CenterState Bank, N.A. currently operates throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.
