CenterState Bank has reached an agreement with Florida Citrus Sports to become the organization’s official banking partner. The partnership includes integration of the CenterState brand throughout Camping World Stadium, including the renaming of the Indoor Club, now known as the CenterState Club.
“We are so excited to have CenterState Bank as our official banking partner,” Florida Citrus Sports CEO Steve Hogan said. “For nearly 30 years, CenterState has been both a banking and community leader in our state and throughout the region, and it’s an honor to have them join our team.”
Recently ranked No. 1 in the state by Forbes, CenterState is one of Florida’s largest publicly traded banks, providing online banking, commercial lending, residential mortgages and investment services.
“As we continue to grow our presence in Orlando and throughout our state, we want to forge partnerships with other Florida-based organizations who share our desire to make a great impact in our communities,” said Brett Barnhardt, CenterState’s Orlando Osceola Community President. “Florida Citrus Sports checks all of the boxes and we look forward to joining forces with this organization and its members.”
In addition to its partnership with Florida Citrus Sports, CenterState has also reached an agreement with LIFT Orlando to provide small business support services to entrepreneurs in an effort to help grow businesses located in the Communities of West Lakes.
“We are grateful for the small business partnership with CenterState and how their support will help resource entrepreneurs in the community,” LIFT Orlando Executive Director Eddy Moratin said. “This partnership helps us to continue forward in our strategic goal of establishing long-term economic viability in West Lakes.”
CenterState has a history of quality service and community focus. CenterState’s core values focus on themes of sustainability, a long-term horizon, the career development of its team and the belief that local ownership and local management translate into a better bank.
“One of CenterState’s core values is to be ‘Local Market Driven’ and our bank was built on relationships within our communities,” said CenterState Bank First Vice President and CRA Officer Mellissa Slover-Athey. “We recognize the opportunity to work with local small businesses and share our business acumen and create long term relationships. Working with the businesses in the Communities of West Lakes and LIFT Orlando just makes economic, synergistic sense.”
