Project Description


USAmeriBank was a de novo bank founded in February 2007 with assets in excess of $5 billion by the time it merged with publicly-traded Valley National Bank in 2018. The strategy of USAmeriBank was to deliver highly personalized customer service, with an employee base that owned 20% of the bank. The bank was led by a team of executives and management personnel who were seasoned local bankers and industry leaders in the development of risk and credit evaluation systems. The bank merger with Valley National Bank allowed the executive and management team of USAmeriBank to combine with Valley National Bank to grow market share throughout southwest Florida and Alabama.
