GulfShore Bank Sails into St. Petersburg
GulfShore Bank opens first St. Petersburg branch in the EDGE District of downtown

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Aug. 30, 2016) – GulfShore Bank, headquartered in Tampa, opened its first location in St. Petersburg’s trendy EDGE district this week.

The branch, located at 965 Central Ave., will be open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. It will be a full service branch for both business and consumer clients. St. Pete residents John Brenner, Commercial Client Manager and Amy St. Hart, Branch Manager will lead the business development efforts for the Bank.

“Opening our first branch office in the EDGE business district makes for an exciting entry into the Pinellas market. Many of the accomplishments of this revitalized district in downtown reflect similar values to GulfShore Bank,” said Joe Caballero, President and CEO of GulfShore Bank. “We are excited to become an integral part of this thriving business community. Their growth has been thoughtful and steady, similar to the growth of our bank, and they are extremely community-oriented, just like we are. It’s a great location for us to enter Pinellas County.”

GulfShore Bank understands the importance of local business in St. Petersburg and plans to support the community with more than just banking. For example, the bank recently integrated local art trends into its newly renovated, 4,200 square foot building, and is honored to be a recipient of a new external wall mural as part of the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival, Sept. 1 -10, 2016.

During their upcoming grand opening and ribbon cutting in September, GulfShore Bank will present donations to local non-profits to give back to the community they serve.

GulfShore Bank has built its company and reputation on individualized attention, unsurpassed client service and local market expertise. The new St. Pete location will be no exception.
