(Amelia Island, Florida) — PrimeSouth Bank announced the opening of its Amelia Island, Florida office at 1500 Sadler Boulevard. The new location will be the eighth for the Georgia-based financial institution and its first in Florida. Josh Mattox has been appointed Amelia Island/Nassau County Market President to head up the bank’s expansion into the Northeast Florida area. PrimeSouth Bank was chartered in 1891 in Blackshear, Georgia. The Bank was founded on a commitment to helping their customers achieve their financial goals via consultative conversations and developing trusting relationships. “This expansion is in alignment with our overall growth strategy to serve dynamic markets with a need for a local bank passionate about serving the community,” says PrimeSouth Bank President and CEO Jim Walker. “As a growing organization, we remain committed to being nimble enough to make quick and informed decisions that serve our customers’ best interest.” “We have a number of current customers in Fernandina and Amelia Island, and we see potential for substantial growth,” Walker added. “With Mattox joining the team, we can offer the advantage of his 20-plus years of banking experience, the last eight on Amelia Island. He has a strong commitment to the community, and he has assembled an incredible team who share his enthusiasm. It is what sets PrimeSouth apart.” PrimeSouth has assets of $700 million, with Georgia offices in Blackshear, Waycross, Jesup, St. Simons Island and three Brunswick locations.
