"You would be hard pressed to find anyone with as much market knowledge and passion for community banking as Hal,” said Marine Bank president and CEO Bill Penney. “His reputation for growth and insight into community banking’s role in the local environment will be an asset to Marine Bank as we expand into new markets.”
Marine Bank & Trust is proud to announce that notable community banker Hal Roberts has been appointed to its board of directors. Mr. Roberts is the former president of Port St. Lucie National Bank, Enterprise National Bank, and Harbor Federal. He also served as the north-central market president for PNC. As president and CEO of Harbor Community Bank, Roberts was instrumental in growing the bank to 46 branch locations in 19 Florida counties with assets of $1.9 billion before it was sold to CenterState Bank in 2017. In 2019, he retired as Treasure Coast regional president of CenterState Bank.
