BankSouth is a Community Bank That’s Here for You

BankSouth has a history of over 75 years of community banking. In fact, many of our currently 24,700 accounts consist of multi-generational depositors totalling over $972 million dollars. If you aren’t currently one of our over 23,000 customers we would love for you to be one.

Perhaps, you are concerned about the recent closure of a couple of highly specialized banks. These banks were very dependent on a single concentration of customers with a lack of financial diversification. BankSouth is a true community bank. Our customers are overwhelmingly local. Local to us in our 4 growing markets of Lake Oconee, Athens, Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia. At BankSouth, you can rest assured that we are a highly capitalized, conservative community bank that is one of the best core customer banks in the state of Georgia and in the U.S. Our Board of Directors, Executive Team and employees have a long history of making good strategic decisions to protect our valued customers.

BankSouth wants you to know we are always here for you and available to talk through your specific banking needs. We’re proud to serve each one of our communities and hold close relationships with many of its civic leaders, business owners, entrepreneurs, students, families, and community members. We know you have a lot of banking options, and we are thankful that each of our customers continue to trust BankSouth as their primary bank of choice.

Special Message From Our Chairman and CEO, Harold Reynolds
