About Beach Community Bank - Celebrating 15 years!
Beach Community Bank was founded in Fort Walton Beach, Florida on April 27, 2001 by a group of local career bankers, a local Board of Directors, and approximately 140 local investors. Our main purpose was to establish a community owned and controlled bank dedicated to meeting our customers' financial needs with outstanding personalized customer service.
We have been honored by a tremendous reception from our customers. With eleven banking offices located from Pensacola to Okaloosa County, Beach Community Bank now exceeds $599 million in total assets and over $521 million in total deposits as of September 2012. We are conveniently located to just about every community in the Panhandle. We have three offices in the Pensacola area, three in the Fort Walton Beach area, one in Destin, one in Niceville, one in Crestview, one in Gulf Breeze, and one in Navarre.
While our success has been greater than we ever imagined, our original goal and purpose remains intact. We are and will continue to be a locally and community controlled financial institution dedicated to meeting our customers’ banking needs by providing outstanding personalized banking products and services, delivered with exceptional customer service.
We are actively involved in serving our local communities in ways other than just as bankers. We have sponsored nine new homes for deserving families through our local Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach with interest free loans. We are actively involved with the Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, Crestview, Gulf Breeze, and Pensacola area Chambers of Commerce. We also support many local non-profit organizations with donations and sponsorships such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, the American Diabetes Association, and Fisher House of the Emerald Coast.
Because of our local management and community ownership, we are more closely attuned to the banking needs of our neighbors in Northwest Florida. Our officers and employees are entrepreneurial, with a "can-do" attitude and approach in working with our customers, which differentiates us from our competitors.
If you are already our customer, then you have experienced our unique approach to banking, and we are most appreciative of your business. If you are not yet our customer, we invite you to check out our relaxed, friendly way of doing business. Come
