Our Story

From our earliest beginnings in 1971, our founders envisioned a bank known for its steadfast combination of character, service and value. We continue to hold true to these core traits, while also capitalizing on innovative products and services.

  • Over $6 billion in assets
  • Over 100 full-service banking and mortgage locations
  • Over 20 years of consecutive average asset growth
  • 20 quarters of continued profitability as Ameris Bank has maneuvered through the latest economic cycle
  • Parent company, Ameris Bancorp, is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under ABCB.

Throughout our history, Ameris Bank has experienced and is continuing to experience progress, innovation and development. Regardless of our expansion and growth, Ameris Bank will always stay true to our roots: a high-performing community bank with an emphasis on providing exceptional customer experiences.

The Ameris Approach

The Ameris Approach defines who we are. It’s how we do business, how we interact, serve and support each other. The Ameris Approach encompasses all of the elements that make our culture unique. Without vision and values, we are lost. Without a purpose and a mission, we are aimless. These ideals are the core of the Ameris Approach and the uniting force in our direction as a Company.
