Ameris Bank opened its doors as American Banking company on October 1, 1971. What started as one location, with $1 million in capital in Moultrie, Georgia, has now evolved into a publicly traded bank headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

Our founding father, Eugene M. Vereen, Jr., envisioned a bank for the future. He and other board members set out to create a collective mindset that doesn't rely on tired banking norms or cookie-cutter solutions. Rather, they set the foundation for a bank that looks beyond tradition to get things done.

A half-century later, Ameris Bank leaders and employees continue to build on this legacy by providing advanced products and services led by an industrious spirit — all with the purpose of improving the lives of our customers and enriching our communities.
