“We’re turning 25 this year, and we’ve learned a valuable lesson along the way,” said Marine Bank president and CEO Bill Penney. “Although we’ve continued to expand into new markets, offered new mobile and online services, and increased the size of our team - we never forgot the value of our community bank culture - no appointment banking, we answer our phones; we know and care about our customers.  It’s their appreciation for this personalized service that fuels our team’s desire to exceed expectations and it’s our community’s need for this service that is motivating our upcoming expansion into Fort Pierce.”

Marine Bank will open a full-service banking center at 604 Seaway Plaza, at the southeast corner of US Highway 1 and Seaway Drive, this summer.
