INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The Sebastian Area Chamber of Commerce awarded Marine Bank & Trust its 2017 Chairman’s Award for the Bank’s commitment to the success of the community, its residents and businesses.
The award was presented at the Chamber’s monthly networking luncheon on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
“The Chamber board of directors truly felt that Marine Bank went over and above during their first year in the Sebastian community,” said Chamber Chairwoman Dawn Biehl. “The Bank shares our belief that we all live here, work here and have a vested part in the community. Team Marine jumped in right away, got involved and participated in community events, improved their property, and began developing strong relationships that we are sure will be long lasting.”
Marine Bank joined the Chamber in 2016 after opening its third full-service banking center at 1020 US 1 in Sebastian.
“At Marine Bank, we take great pride in being a community bank and embracing all that it stands for,” said Bill Penney, President and CEO of Marine Bank & Trust. “So to be recognized for doing what comes natural to us is a nice pat on the back. We hope to make the exact same impact on the Melbourne area in 2018.”
Marine Bank will be opening its fourth full-service banking center at 3303 Suntree Boulevard in Melbourne in early 2018. The Bank currently operates a loan production office in Brevard County located at 6525 3rd Street, Suite 209 in Rockledge. The current office is shared with the Bank’s partners at Connors Wealth Management.
