About Us

CenterState Bank's history of quality service and community focus started in the early 1990's when a group of individuals came together around the belief that local ownership and local management would translate into a better bank. Through their vision and investment, a bank was born - a community bank headquartered in Polk County: First National Bank of Polk County. Several years later, another bank came into being with its first office in Winter Haven: CenterState Bank, built upon the same core values. In January of 2006, First National and CenterState merged to become CenterState Bank of Florida, with over $400 million in assets and a banking center network of 12 offices conveniently located throughout Polk County. In August of 2008, CenterState Bank acquired a Correspondent Banking division located in Birmingham, AL. This enables CenterState Bank to be used by other banks for their lending and investing needs. We became a part of the Ocala community in January, 2009. CenterState continues to expand, recently southward, with two acquisitions in South Miami-Dade County. We offer 66 branch locations in 25 counties. CenterState's assets will approach $5 billion in 2016. We continue to pursue our vision and have become Florida's 2nd largest community bank.
