Our History

Located in northeast Florida, FirstAtlantic Bank is a full service community bank with 8 financial centers located in Jacksonville, Orange Park, St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach.

FirstAtlantic Bank operates under a traditional community banking model with an emphasis on high-quality customer service and relationship-driven banking. FirstAtlantic Bank can effectively compete with regional and national financial institutions while maintaining personalized service and localized decision-making.

Through the years, FirstAtlantic Bank has continually expanded its footprint in Northeast Florida. The Southpoint Financial Center (Jacksonville) opened in July 2007; the Normandy Financial Center (Jacksonville) opened on April 21, 2008; and the Cobblestone Financial Center (St. Augustine) opened on December 5, 2008.

FirstAtlantic Bank acquired our Kingsley Avenue (Orange Park) location on July 22, 2011 from Synovus Bank. Later that year, our San Marco Financial Center (Jacksonville) was acquired from the former CenterBank of Jacksonville on December 16, 2011.

In December 2012, we acquired our Beach & Hodges Financial Center (Jacksonville) from the former Prosperity Bank.

FirstAtlantic Bank further expanded by adding Ponte Vedra and Orange Park Financial Centers through the acquisition of two locations from the former Heritage Bank of North Florida on April 19, 2013.

In January 2018, FirstAtlantic Bank became a division of National Bank of Commerce, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of National Commerce Corporation (Nasdaq: NCOM). National Bank of Commerce operates community banks in Alabama, Georgia and Florida under trade names that reflect our commitment to the communities we serve.
