The Bank of Tampa has opened a new Manatee County branch at 10650 Boardwalk Loop in Lakewood Ranch.
The 3,820-square-foot banking center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, according to a news release, and it will offer night deposit services and safe deposit boxes. The branch will be led by veteran local banker Bryan Boudreaux, who joined The Bank of Tampa in 2018.
“Opening our Lakewood Ranch office has long been in our plans to continue to grow our presence in the Sarasota and Manatee market,” states Charlie Murphy, the bank’s Sarasota and Manatee market president, in the release. “When we expanded to Sarasota County, we did so with the thought that we would continue to grow our footprint and build a team of local bankers who could help us best serve owner-managed businesses, professional firms and families in this area. We’re thrilled to see that vision coming true with an official location in the Manatee County market.”
Founded in 1984, The Bank of Tampa has 13 offices throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, Sarasota and Manatee counties, as well as a loan production office in Pasco County. Its total assets exceed $3.2 billion, and its wealth management practice has more than $1 billion total assets under care.
