Bank of Central Florida is proud to celebrate their 10th year as a locally owned community bank and their expansion into Winter Haven, with plans to open an office in the first quarter of 2018. The new location will be a commercial banking office at first, not a traditional retail office. It will be staffed by familiar faces, Commercial Banking Officer Bo Boyte and Michele Hardcaslte. The new location is 250 3rd St. NW., Suite 102 in downtown Winter Haven.
Bank of Central Florida is dedicated to serving Polk County residents and businesses with a different approach to relationship banking. This bank provides customers with experienced bankers who work with their clients to find solutions to financial needs. With over $460 million in deposits, Bank of Central Florida has grown to become Lakeland’s largest community bank in terms of deposit market share over the course of 10 years.
This bank has experienced large growth, but Paul J. Noris, President of Bank of Central Florida, shares that they could not have done it alone. “We’re guided by a loyal Board of Directors with deep roots in Central Florida, a strong management team and more than 60 dedicated employees – all committed to the core values that define our organization.”
Due to continued advancements in mobile delivery channels, Bank of Central Florida is expanding and growing their online presence. Clients are able to complete online transactions at anytime, 24 hours a day. In 2017 Bank of Central Florida unveiled the Business Mobile Deposit, as well as the ‘Anywhere ATM’ program. This program gives clients the ability to use their debit card at any ATM machine within the U.S. and have the withdrawal fees reimbursed. Bank of Central Florida will launch “Zelle,” in 2018. This will allow clients to move money digitally from bank to bank in real time without the use of a check.
“These advancements in our technology are being developed with you – our Polk County residents and businesses – in mind”- Paul J. Noris, President/CEO, Bank of Central Florida
Bank of Central Florida is committed to playing an active role in civic activities and to contributing to local charitable causes, having donated hundreds of thousands of dollars nonprofit organizations during the last decade. Many of their bankers are involved with nonprofit organizations in the areas they serve.
