A Special Thanks

Since our founding in 1971, Ameris Bank has experienced many great successes, much growth and a surplus of innovation – none of which would be possible without our customers. We thank you for choosing Ameris Bank as your financial partner and allowing us to bank with you! From the entire Ameris Bank family, we wish you a wonderful holiday season filled with joy and beauty throughout the coming year!

CEO Dennis Zember

As we enter this holiday season, Ameris Bank and Ameris Bancorp’s Chief Executive Officer Dennis Zember reflects on the many reasons we are grateful for our customers and colleagues – both essential ingredients to our Company’s success and growth.

Dear colleagues, customers and neighbors,

During this season of thanks, I can’t help but think about what a privilege and honor it is to serve as Ameris Bank’s CEO (but truly, I think about how grateful I am all the time). I am proud to lead such a wonderful team, and I am grateful to work alongside them. To my Ameris Bank colleagues – I am inspired daily by your passion and commitment to our bank and to serving others. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to make Ameris Bank the bank it is today.

What a year it has been! We continue to nurture and grow banking relationships throughout our footprint, while also breaking records helping our neighbors most in need. Nearly 1.9 million items collected for Helping Fight Hunger this October – amazing. Nine years ago we had big dreams for this initiative, and every year we reach higher and higher, exceeding our expectations and helping more and more people. Thank you to everyone for your compassion and service – there is such joy in giving and I am so proud of the positive impact we are making in our communities.

On behalf of the entire Ameris Bank family, I express deep appreciation and gratitude for our customers and the communities we serve. To our customers – thank you for your loyalty. You continue to shape us into the bank we are today. This year we launched an even more deliberate effort to listen to you, to better understand your needs. Your feedback and input will drive our innovation and our commitment to providing financial peace of mind for years to come. To the communities serve – it is an honor and privilege to be your neighbor. Thank you for entrusting us with supporting the needs of your local businesses and citizens. Many new towns and cities welcomed us with open arms in 2018; it is an honor to be a part of our new and legacy communities.

Thank you for a wonderful 2018 and for many years to come!


Dennis J. Zember Jr.
Ameris Bank Chief Executive Officer
