CenterState Bank was started by a group of bankers and entrepreneurs over 25 years ago with the strong belief that a partnership and the support of the local communities is the key to the success of a community bank. Our Holding Company, CenterState Banks, Inc. is headquartered in Davenport, Florida. The company, formed in June 2000, operates 58 banking centers and 3 loan production offices, and as of December 2014 maintains approximately $3.7 billion in assets and $3.1 billion in deposits.
During 2014, the company acquired Gulfstream Business Bank in Stuart, Florida and First Southern Bank in Boca Raton, Florida. Since 2009, our Board of Directors and Management have utilized our strong capital levels and financial stability, positioning the bank to acquire numerous financial institutions.
